And while a lot of people are talking shit about moving here, some people are actually quite serious about it.

That's because Canada is the obvious choice. We're close by, we have great beer and we're probably the country that resembles America the most.

However there are a few subtle differences between America and Canada. So in order to minimize the cultures shock we've compiled a list of all the important things Americans need to know about Canada before moving.


Thanksgiving is in October

As it should be. American Thanksgiving is way to close to Christmas.


Winter hats are called tuques

It's pronounced "tük", and sometimes it's spelled "toque". But it's definitely not called a beanie.


Canadian beer is much stronger

Take it easy 'Murica, you have to build up a tolerance before you can drink like a Canadian.


When we wear Uggs, it's out of necessity

We never thought Uggs were fashionable, but we need them to survive winter.


Buddy is a term of endearment

So when someone says he's not your buddy, you're definitely not his friend, guy.


We don't say soda or pop

We either call it a soft drink or we just call it whatever is in the can. If it's a coke, it's a coke, not a soda.


Pizza toppings go under the cheese

Well, as many as we can fit, but sometimes the toppings overflow and we're forced to put some on top.


Tim Hortons

Tim Hortons

Dunkin Donuts is an endangered species in Canada.


Milk comes in bags

That's just the way it is. and we don't drink milk at dinner either, that shit's nasty.


Despite what you may think we have a lot of guns here

But we prefer shooting animals and targets rather than each other, and when we do accidentally shoot each other, we have free health care.
