Only in my homeland.

A few days ago right before Christmas I was over in Ontario running some errands. Now I know my adored homeland of Canada has some pretty amazing quirks and cultural oddities, but this one stuck. It was snowing lightly and most folks out that day were bundled up in their jackets. This gentleman was out shopping in full holiday regalia. I couldn't help but admire his Santa Claus beard but was more intrigued with his fur lined red cowboy hat, bright red muscle tee, and snappy red leather belt to hold the entire ensemble together. It took some serious swagger and some thick skin to walk around a balmy Canadian day that afternoon!
