The Maple Leaf Flag
A Canadian couple was strolling through Hyde Park in London and sat down
on a bench next to an elderly Briton.
The Brit noticed their lapel pins sporting the Canadian flag and, to make
conversation, said, 'Judging by your pins, you must be Canadians.'
'Indeed we are,' replied the Canadian gentleman.
'I hope you won't
mind my asking,' said the Brit, 'but what do the two red bars on your flag
'Well,' replied the Canadian gentleman, 'one of the bars stands for the
courage and hardiness of our people in settling the cold expanses and broad
prairies of our country. The other is for the honesty and integrity for
which Canadians are known.'
The Brit mulled this over and nodded. Having poor eyesight at his
advanced age, and not being familiar with maple leaves, he then asked, 'And
what's that six-pointed item in the middle of your flag?'
'Oh, that's to remind us of the six words of our national motto,' the
Canadian lady piped up.
The Brit then asked, 'And what are those six words?'
smiled and replied, 'They are 'Don't blame us - we're not Americans.'
The flag of Canada has two red bars and a white centre - within which is
a maple leaf. It was adopted as the National Flag in 1965. [Previously Canada
used the Union Jack - the British Flag.]
The National emblem of a maple leaf and has been associated with Canada
since the 1700's.

When Canada Was Created
On the sixth day God turned to the Archangel Gabriel and said, 'Today I
am going to create a land called Canada. It will be a land of outstanding
natural beauty; it shall have tall majestic mountains full of mountain goats
and eagles, and beautiful sparkly lakes bountiful with carp and trout. There
shall be forests full of elk and moose, high cliffs overlooking sandy
beaches with an abundance of sea life, and rivers stocked with salmon.'
God continued, 'I shall make the land rich in oil so to make the
inhabitants prosper, I shall call these inhabitants Canadians, they shall be
known as the most friendly people on the earth.'
'But Lord,' responded Gabriel, 'don't you think you are being too
generous to these Canadians?'
'No, not really.' God replied..........'Just wait and see the neighbours
I am going to give them.'

Niagara Fall Freeze 1911
Situated on the America / Canada border, the Niagara Falls often get
snow, but it's extremely rare for it to be cold enough for the falls to
freeze. Sadly the phenomenon is never likely to happen again, partly because
of global warming and partly due to man-made dam to control the flow. To be
accurate, it was the American falls that froze and not the larger Horseshoe
falls, also at Niagara.
Nevertheless, we are impressed by these frozen snow pictures with their
giant icicles. Incidentally the Niagara is an American Indian word
Funny Canadian Stories
An old Canadian sailor from HMCS Sackville and an American Gunbunny were sitting in the Duke of Buckingham
pub arguing about who'd had the tougher career.
'I did 30 years in the
29th Field Artillery', the American declared proudly, 'and fought in three of
wars. Fresh out of boot camp I hit the beach at Okinawa, clawed my way up the blood-soaked sand, and eventually took out an entire enemy machine gun nest with a single grenade. 'As a sergeant, I
fought in Korea alongside General MacArthur. We pushed back the enemy inch by bloody inch all the way up to the Chinese border, always under a barrage of artillery and small arms fire. 'Finally, as a gunny
sergeant, I did three consecutive combat tours in Vietnam. We humped through the mud and razor grass for 14 hours a day, plagued by rain and mosquitoes, ducking under sniper fire all day and mortar fire all
night. In a fire-fight, we'd fire until our arms ached and our guns were empty, then we'd charge the enemy with bayonets!'

Christmas in Canada:
Father Christmas has his own personal zip code [postcode]; it is the
alphanumeric number: H0H 0H0. (Ho-Ho-Ho) In this way people who write to
Santa know that their letter will arrive safely. It has been his personal
code since 1982 and Will and Guy have learned that this address receives
some 1 million letters from all over the world each year. Apparently, each
letter received will be answered in the same language in which it is
written, which, on its own must be a mammoth task.
