some Canadian traditions

Canadians to greet each other with a kiss on each cheek (left then right), while handshaking is the tradition in the rest of Canada. When attending dinner parties, purchasing high-quality wine and sending flowers beforehand are both common occurrences.
A few flowers have specific symbolic meaning in Canada. Roses are very strongly associated with romantic love, particularly on Valentine’s Day, poinsettias are a symbol of Christmas rarely seen outside the holiday, poppies are a symbol of war veterans and Remembrance Day, and white calla lilies are a somewhat old-fashioned symbol of death.
“The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth”—that’s the Calgary Stampede, an annual extravaganza that happens every July in Calgary, Alberta. The Stampede’s core purpose is “to preserve and celebrate western heritage, culture and community spirit.” They celebrate through concerts, rodeo events (with big money prizes), carnival rides, exhibitions, a parade, and agricultural competitions. The Stampede is one of Canada’s biggest traditions, as over one million people from around the world visit every year.
In 2014, Halloween became a billion dollar industry in Canada alone...
