Stuff Canadian people like

The freshly lit Rockefeller TreeLast week, I attended a celebration of the lighting of the tree at Rockefeller Center hosted by the Canadian Tourism Commission. The logic goes like this:

  1. The 2010 Olympics are going to be in Vancouver.
  2. The Olympics will be aired by NBC.
  3. NBC is based at Rockefeller Center.
  4. NBC also airs the Rockefeller Tree lighting.

Is it a stretch? Yes, but it was also a lot of fun — particularly because of the abundance of stuff Canadian people like, including bison burgers and snowshoes. Never has a single venue in Rockefeller Center been so Canada’d out.

So, this one’s for you, Canadians, I can only assume that this gallery will make you squeal with glee!
And by the way, Vancouver hotels are all booked up for the Olympics, but you can still get in on the big celebration by visiting and checking out Canadian rental apartments and B&Bs.
