Why Halloween is the Best Half-Holiday

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Everyone says that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, and while I don’t think I can dispute that in good conscience, the time of year around Halloween is a very close second.

Umm sorry, but why do Canadians say sorry all the time?

Canadians apologize for coming to work early, for squeezing past you in a crowded area, for asking for a napkin in a restaurant, for entering the elevator before you, for feeding you more than they should and sometimes to even themselves! Can you imagine being a Canadian and having to send back a wrong food order at a restaurant?!
