One of the first items of mail I was expecting at my new address was a package from ScrappySue. She sent it a few weeks ago and it made its way via snail-mail from New Zealand to Canada to arrive this morning. The kids and I opened it together, while Hubby took pictures... Because a package from the other side of the world is a moment one must capture for one's blog - if a blog one has (which one does - if "one" is me, which one is - in this case, anyway...) Don't you agree?
We call them touques** (pronounced "tuke") in Canada.
Although, I'm also partial to calling them "hoser hats"***.
"Beanies" it is - although to me a beanie is a round hat with a propeller on top.
Monkey likes chocolate.
Nom nom nom.
Thank you, Sue! You brought us fun and excitement, along with some great NZ gifties.
There you go. It gets cold here so Canadians take their winter hats very seriously. Well, not really - I mean, we're not weird about it or anything - but it does get cold, so we wear hats. Yup.
