21 Insanely Awesome Things About Canada
Of course, I believe that there are WAY MORE than 21 insanely awesome things about Canada but I still enjoyed this video list put together by Talltanic in June, 2017. If you are Canadian, you will also likely know some of these facts but I bet there are some that you do not know, too.

I won't spoil the video for you if I bet that you have heard of our sweet export maple syrup, our prime minister and our quick use of the word sorry. However, did you know that Canadians have a longer life expectancy than many other countries, that we have the most expensive coin ever produced and that Santa Claus is from Canada?

Watch the 12 minute video for yourself and discover some more interesting facts about Canada:

Tim Hortons Canada Celebrating 150 Years Coffee Mug

It has been awhile since I have posted a mug here on this blog. However, that is not to say that I have not seen more than a few fabulous pieces. I just stumbled across this totally terrific Tim Hortons mug, which celebrates Canada's 150th Birthday Party. The party is happening July 1, 2017 and I am sure that if you are in Canada, you have not missed the fact that we are celebrating though you may have missed this mug.

Because of this huge celebration, there are a lot of red and white merchandise options out there but I know that this officially licensed mug, with the cool comic-style patriotic images of the loon, ice skating, maple syrup, the maple leaf, beavers, curling, etc., is the perfect souvenir choice for many of you.  Of course, it also includes images of Tim Hortons coffee, Timbits and donuts, an important tradition in Canada.

The text reads, "CANADA celebrating 150 Years – Tim Hortons."

I love the red interior, too, which features a maple leaf in the bottom and I also love that it is dishwasher and microwave safe.

It is reasonably sized measuring 4 inches tall and 3.75 inches wide (without the handle) and holds 14 oz of your favorite steamy hot beverage, whether that be Tim Hortons' coffee or something else. Personally, I am a tea drinker so you will find only tea in my coffee mugs!

This mug is a limited edition mug and available only while supplies last. I suspect that it could be a hot seller since Canada really is gearing up for a fantastic party. If for whatever reason you are unable to find this mug locally, know that you can find it readily available on eBay by clicking right here.

How about it? Would you like to lift a Tim Hortons' mug in celebration of our national holiday and the birthday of our nation?  Are you a Canadian in Canada, a Canadian who lives away or just someone who loves Canada?  Be sure to take a moment and say hello and tell us where you hail from and whether or not Tim Hortons figures in the mix when you think of Canada.

Happy Birthday, Canada!
