When our $2.00 bills here in Canada stopped being produced, the Twoonie was introduced. Some people tried to get the “beary” name for it instead, but that didn’t stick. Twoonie sounds better and rolls off the tongue a bit better. The Twoonie above is one of the newer ones introduced this year that features more anti-counterfeit measures. Although, not sure anyone really tired to counterfeit the Twoonie in the first place!

If you drink milk, be sure it’s Canadian milk! Moo, eh!
One thing that I, and I am sure other Canadians look forward to every year, is getting the Milk Calendar in their local paper. It’s filled with great recipes and this year marks it’s 35th Anniversary.
So many great things are made in Canada including the notebook where this “Made in Canada” logo can be found.
Wear this great Canada Flag Pin to show off your Canadian Pride.
We Canadians are so special, we need our very own dictionary, eh!
Proud to be born and raised in C – eh – N – eh – D – eh!
A medallion shows off it’s Canadian pride featuring the word Canada inside of Maple Leaf.
Invented in Brantford, Ontario, Canada by Alexander Graham Bell, this Canadian invention, the telephone, has revolutionised the world!

The True North Strong and Free! Oh, Canada!
A very pretty sight to see a maple key, or even a bunch of them, spinning down from a maple tree and landing in the grass.
Happy Canada Day! This months theme is all things Canadian and what better way to kick off the theme than with maple leaves?!
