7 tell-tale Signs that You Went to a Canadian High School

How many Canadians does it take to change a lightbulb?

None, they don’t change lightbulbs- they accept them for who they are.

Yes, yes, good old friendly Canadians; the only nation on Earth that don’t see the point of a front door key, and the only population that truly understands the meaning of the phrase “Love thy neighbour.”

Their system for education is just one other factor that sets them apart from the rest of the world; their academic standards are extremely high, their qualifications are internationally recognised and their fees are particularly affordable- on top of all this, Canadians have a great sense of humour (and they also know how to spell it, not like their American friends…)

Canada offers one of the best quality of life in the world, so it’s pretty unsurprising that so many young people are choosing to study there. One thing we know for certain is that going to school in Canada changes a person…

Here is a list of 7 tell-tale signs that you went to a Canadian high school:

1. You celebrated Thanksgiving in October

That’s right, Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving on the second Monday of October, whereas Americans celebrate the same holiday on the 26th November. Weird, huh? Well, you know the Canadians; totally laid back and just happy to celebrate with their neighbour- even if it is a month apart.

It’s all fun and games until you realise the ‘Yanks’ get a four day weekend when yours is limited to three…

2. You can’t help but giggle when you hear the word ‘about’…

“Hey buddy, what are you doing?”

“Oh you know, just hanging aboot.”

3. You’ve recited the words to “O, Canada” so many times, when you hear them now it brings on a small aneurism…

Seriously…

4. You can successfully name more than one Canadian province

Kudos to you!

5. The phrase “…closed due to inclement weather” still makes you feel like you’re about to pee your pants…

Best. Day. EVER!

6. You’re used to hearing conversations in several different languages

You know you’re in deep when you start thinking in French…

7. You’ve drizzled maple syrup on to every savoury combination you could imagine…and it was goooooooooood

Have no shame- it is the juice of the heavens!
