[VIDEO] English Quirks That Are Rude in Canada





Thoughts from Alanna…

This week I wanted to talk about specific English quirks that are rude in Canada. It’s so interesting that although our countries are very similar, there’s still big differences!

After living in Kent, England, for the last three years, these are some cultural quirks I’ve noticed that would be considered a bit rude in Canada (or Ontario, to be specific).

Thankfully Canadians are pretty forgiving so you’d probably get away with it, anyway!

I hope you enjoy!




[VIDEO] Eat This: Canadian Tries British Puddings





Thoughts from Alanna…

It’s time. I finally get to try British puddings. As a Canadian living in England, I actually haven’t had that many puddings so now’s my chance!

“Pudding” in Canada usually means a specific type of treat called pudding, where in the UK it seems to be used for a variety of desserts. Language is weird.

A lot of people have said that these are just gross store-bought puddings and homemade homes are much better. You’re right! But the idea of “Eat This” series ┬áis just to try food at the supermarket that regular English people eat. Nothing fancy.

Hope you enjoy!

Halloween is pretty big in Canada, although not so much here in England. Whether you celebrate this fun holiday or not, I hope you had a great October!

Plus there’s still time to eat too much candy and watch scary movies.. still time!
