We are huge lovers of the Olympics in our family and the Winter Olympics have always been my favorite. Growing up in Alberta most of us can remember watching Elizabeth Manley skating her way to a silver in the 1988 Olympics. Those were the glory days of Kurt Browning, followed by Elvis Stojko, when figure skating was more than a sport, it was entertainment for us all!
That said, in my older years I have come to love hockey more and more. We all can remember when Canada won the Gold medal in BOTH the men and women’s hockey? Oh what a moment!
We look forward to the Olympics in our house and are glued to the TV the entire time. The kids can’t wait to watch them and we always curl up in front of the TV as a family and cheer on Canada whenever we can!

I absolutely love the Team Canada gear that comes out for the Olympics, we own many hats/toques. Ever since Roots designed the new caps a few Olympics ago, the gear that comes out for the Olympics is fashionable and shrieks our love of our home and native land, Canada! The kids had toques and matching mitts and I swear, every kid at their school had the same ones, we had to write their names on the inside to keep track of them!
I am coveting the scarf that I posted at the top, that is SO awesome! I love it!
So enter to win some fabulous gear and tell me, what’s your favorite sport in the winter Olympics? As much as I am a hockey girl, I have started to watch so many more, bobsledding, luge, and of course, figure skating will always be my first Olympic love!
Good luck everyone! Enter the contest below!
