TL;DR A video posted to Facebook by user Jason White shows multiple caribou wandering down a Canadian highway. Scroll down to the bottom of the article to watch.

With a stunning natural landscape, snowy winter weather, and an already jovial population, the country is practically made for the holidays.

Often, Canada is also host to some pretty incredible phenomena that give it an extra kick of holiday magic.

Such is the case this week. In a video posted to Facebook by Canadian Jason White, several caribou can be seen wandering down a rural road amidst a heavy snowfall.

"I think Santa’s reindeer’s are lost on the west coast!!! Coolest thing I’ve even seen on the road!!!" wrote White.

Of course, Santa is known to have nine reindeer. White's video shows at least ten caribou.

This discrepency casts doubt on his conclusion that these animals belong to the big man in red. But the video is pretty cool, nonetheless.

White had to honk his truck horn repeatedly to scare the reindeer off the road. According to City News, the encounter took place in western Newfoundland.

But millions of caribou (also known as reindeer) inhabit every corner of Canada. Each year, they participate in one of the largest migrations on the planet. They're a pretty incredible species.

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.
