Canada is awesome – all 9.98 million square kilometres of it is awesome. Canada is the world’s second largest country and boasts of rivers and lakes and pretty landscapes. Everybody knows of Canada’s free healthcare, its beauty, and the benefits that come with living in such a clean country! But, what about the other teeny tiny things that make the country so great? Look at these reasons to know why it’s so awesome living in Canada!
1. Santa is Canadian:
Yes! Santa is officially Canadian. The National Post reported that Jason Kenney, the 2010 president made it very clear when he said “We wish Mr. Claus all the best in his Christmas Eve duties again this year,” Mr. Kenney said. “And rest assured, as a Canadian citizen living in Canada’s North, he can re-enter Canada freely once his trip around the world is complete.”
He even writes back. Volunteer elves at Canada Post make sure every letter to the jolly elf is answered. Just write a letter to Santa Claus, North Pole, Ho Ho Ho, Canada.
2. There’s a Batman Course:
“The Science of Batman” is an official course in the University of Victoria, Canada. Imagine that!
3. Get your face all over town!
You can put your face on postal stamps in Canada. Canada Post has a service that lets you create stamps using your own photos and logos. You can design them using their website or mobile app
4. Million Gold Coin:
Yep, Canada has a Gold Coin worth 1 Mil – well, more like 5 mil in the real world. Introduced in 2007, the coin weighs 100 kg and is .99999 per cent pure.
5. You can weigh lesser:
Parts of Canada have lesser gravity than anywhere else in the world. So, if you were there you’d actually weigh less!
