Canadians and Americans share the longest border in the world and are practically geographical siblings. They share many of the same qualities but, like all siblings, have their differences. If Mexico, Canada, and America were triplets, Canada would be the middle child.

Our great nation north of America is often misunderstood. There's some things our siblings just won't ever understand -- things that will undoubtedly make them say, "What."

It's called tire d'érable and, yeah, it's pretty good honestly.

We use scissors to open the top but sometimes we use our teeth.

Canadians use two dollar coins and call them a Toonie.

And a one dollar coin is called a Loonie. It's fun, OK? We even have a weekly holiday: Toonie Tuesday.

November sucks. October in Canada is amazing.

Our national dish is french fries with gravy and cheese on top.

Canadians don't have a president.

They have a prime minister and he has the same birthday as Jesus (December 25).

Canadians eat bacon that looks like ham.

They eat the strips too, don't worry.
