      Usually my parents do a big dinner and everything for thanksgiving! My mom makes the best turkey stuffing! This year, like my signup thing said, I was in the UK so I didn't really celebrate.

        Welcome to the club both of you! :) I've actually never been to Quebec tbh, but I've heard a lot of great things about it. As for Canadian Thanksgiving, there were 41 people here Sunday night xD. We still have a ton of leftovers to keep us busy for a while too.

            Who here has ever tried proper poutine or montreal smoked ham sandwich?

            I like the former (who doesnt like fries, cheese, and gravy) but the latter can be a bit spicy because they always put peppercorn sauce on the outside when I try it!

            Relation to Canada: Very much Canadian in background (part-Métis, a little ways back!). Born in Toronto, lived in Edmonton from ages 2-6, Vancouver at 7 (we brought the snow from Edmonton with us... Vancouver got its largest record snowfall in like 40 years the one year we were there lmao), Halifax from 8-12, Toronto from 13-18, and I've mostly lived in Waterloo, ON from age 19 on.
            Favorite Province: I really love living in Ontario, but I think my favourite province was Nova Scotia. It was so beautiful. Haven't been back there in years though. :(

            Thanksgiving at my house last week was great. <3 We had lobster one night since we've done that every year since we moved to Nova Scotia and on Thanksgiving Monday we had an early lunch of cornish hens which are kind of like individual turkeys. Wish we'd had it later but my brother had to catch his flight back to Ottawa. I don't really do big meals early in the day so I kind of missed out on a lot of it because I was full so quickly. :'(

            I... actually don't like either of those! I'm not a fan of cheese which is why poutine is almost always a miss for me (although occasionally I'm good with it). Also don't like ham or smoked foods so... ;_;

            My favourite Canadian foods are usually just treats and candy. Like butter tarts or Beavertails or nanaimo bars, etc. Or frozen maple syrup candy, although I'm not actually a fan of maple syrup normally? /bad Canadian

              I love Canadian candy sooo much. xD Especially all the stuff that you can't get here in the states, like Aero and Caramilk. They're my two favorite candies, and you can't even get them here, which is why I get like a Jumbo Sized pack every time I go up to see family in Ontario.

              I understand why not alot of people like poutine =P
              Because when i travelled around USA and Canada, the poutine tasted horrible compared to the ones we have here in Quebec^^

                Relation to Canada: I lived in a freezer Edmonton. I currently attend the University of Alberta. West Edmonton Mall not exactly as interesting as it may sound (it's more of the same old same old... not that much to do there to be honest.)

                Favorite Province: Alberta, probably cause I'm mostly here all my life within Canada. Moved here from asia since like grade 3 and is here since. Strangely enough, I only visited Toronto exactly once all this time XD;

                Reason for Joining: Just cause =P


                Poutine actually taste pretty decently but considering the health factors related to it, it's not exactly worth it to me XD;

                I still harbour a bit of resentment towards West Edmonton Mall since when I moved away from Edmonton, I was still way too short to ride any of the good roller coasters in the theme park. :'(

                  It's obviously time for a visit then this Christmas. I'll even pick you up from the airport =P It's not a bad park to play there once in the mall, but if you live there then it does grow to be boring unless there's friends/relatives who are coming along XD;

                  I should take a *proper* visit to Toronto honestly and visit people around there someday...

                      Welcome to the club! :3 I've heard good things about Alberta, but never actually been. :(
                      I feel like a bad Canadian right now. Never had poutine, never been to Alberta. xD

                      I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
                      Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
                      I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
                      But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
                      So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

                        I didn't even know that you're allowed to sleep there XD;

                        And really nothing all that special about Alberta. You aren't missing out that much ;p I'm rather surprised where's all the Vancouver people? I imagined that there's lot more Vancouver PCers as it's a bigger city too. Hey if there's enough people in Alberta, we should have our own meetup sometime haha XD

                          XD if we're doing random meetups, will at least need contact info so it's not like meeting random strangers. I still feel bad that I missed the PCX by a week earlier...

                          Back to poutine earlier: I only tried them from new york fries on campus >_>; which probably doesn't count as "real" poutine. I stopped having them though cause they're just so bad for your health. I tried those maple syrup on ice and wrap it as candy though in Quebec. It's pretty unique though I can't say that it's all that special in taste.

                            Given my one visit to Grand Piraire I can certainly see how something tragic like that happen... I hope that everyone else is coping well with the tragedy though =(

                            As for poutine, ya I only get the regular type of poutine at NYF. It's a tragedy that the last time I went to Quebec, I didn't have time to get a "real poutine." It felt like going to Italy without trying pizza...

                            I always wanted to go to the Edmonton Mall. Being the biggest one in the world haha.
                            Here in Montreal, we got the biggest underground mall in the world tho, and kinda got tired of it lol x3

                            I've never been to the West Edmonton Mall, but I'm not the kind of person that finds a big appeal about going to a big mall. I guess working in one does kind of kill that as a fun activity, though. But, I do have some family up in Edmonton, so maybe one day I'll end up going just to say that I did.

                            And I've never been a big fan of gravy, so I'm not all that fond of poutine, but my sister absolutely loves it. This got me to thinking about other foods that you can only find in Canada, and was surprised to see that aside from small specialty stores, Aero, Caramilk and Coffee Crisp chocolate bars can't be found in the US (and they call them candy bars, not chocolate bars).

                              I don't think that it's the biggest mall anymore... and it's just like the Montreal underground mall: if you live there, you get tired of it or that it loses its specialty. It's just a very big mall lol.

                              And really, for guys, there's nothing to buy there XD; Not all, but most of the shops there are for the ladies, and you better be loaded if you intend to spend an entire day shopping in West Edmonton Mall...

                              Literally the only store I remember being in West Edmonton Mall aside from a Yogen Fruz was an HMV. XD I was 6 when I moved away.

                              But any mall gets boring when you live near it. My parents live about 10 minutes away from Vaughan Mills right now which is a huge American-style mall that's a pretty big tourist attraction (I assume because it's also across the street from Wonderland) and it's one of my least favourite malls for being so crowded and so boring. :(
