Do you ever have strange trivia just floating around in your head? It comes in handy at parties or during those awkward moments of silence doesn’t it?!
I have a knack for retaining all things Canadian; inventions, discoveries, famous people, etc. What can I say… I love my Country!! Even every stereotype, no doubt about it eh!
Here are 10 things that come to mind that you may not have known came from Canada or a Canadian:
- Nursing Mothers Breast Pads
- Electric Cooking Range (1882)
- Green Garbage Bags (1950’s)
- Jolly Jumper
- Portable High Chair
- Washing Machine
- Zipper (1913)
- Trivial Pursuit (game 1982)
- Kerosene (1840)
- 5 Pin Bowling!
There are tons more, trust me… I know first hand, but want to see what interesting info on all things Canada / Canadian you can come up with.
Think deeper than the usual “Basketball”, “Telephone” & “Justin Bieber” answers, those are too easy… but yes, TRUE!
I double-dog dare you!
