Traditions

Traditions- Canadians strongly believe you should take off your shoes when you walk in their house so you’re not getting mud or gravel onto the clean floors in their house. When its Halloween time, children like to dress up in old bed sheets or costumes and they go around to houses and get heaps of candy. They believed dressing up kept the evil spirits away. When it’s Christmas, adults and children dress up in old mis-matched clothes and cover their faces and go around to houses in the neighbourhood and put on a mini concert. They sing Christmas carols and dance.

Food

We call it peameal bacon but the rest of the world lovingly refers to it as Canadian. And here’s the thing: it’s just lean, boneless pork loin that’s been brined and rolled in finely ground cornmeal (years ago, it would have been peameal).

In the United States, “Canadian bacon” is a salted and cured meat much like conventional bacon. In much of Canada and Great Britain, however, “Canadian bacon” is an entirely different food, cured and treated in a different way before sale.

The favorite foods of Canadians vary slightly from region to region, and are strongly influenced by their family heritage, especially in relation to holiday celebrations.

Throughout Canada, maple syrup and maple products are popular, reflecting the significance of the maple tree, whose leaf adorns the flag of Canada.


Later in the spring, many people in Eastern Canada visit a wooded area to harvest fiddleheads. Fiddleheads, named because they look like the coiled end of a violin.They are the tasty new sprouts of woodland ferns, picked before they develop into large lacey fronds. They are a fragile spring specialty, usually available for just a few weeks in the spring.
