With today's photo hunt, I really had trouble finding a photo of myself in a hat. So I decided to pull out a recent photo with a beanie as we call them in California or a Tuque as you call them in Canada. When I first came to Canada, I had no clue what this Tuque thing was and it took me a day or two to figure out that it was a "hat".
A tuque (Canadian French: tuque, sometimes also spelled toque or touque in English) is a knitted hat, originally of wool though now often of synthetic fibers, that is designed to provide warmth in winter. The tuque usually is considered Canada's national winter hat, much like the fur hat is in Russia.
Happy Hunting - and have a great weekend!
