    19 Things That'd Be Different If "Stranger Things" Were Set In Canada

    "Mornings are for Double-Doubles and contemplation."

    WARNING: This post contains spoilers about the first season of Stranger Things.

    1. In the Upside Down, snow would drift through the air instead of ash.

    2. Hopper would leave Eleven a little bottle of authentic Canadian maple syrup with the waffles.

    3. The lunch lady would hoard Nanaimo bars in the fridge instead of chocolate pudding.

    4. Dustin wouldn't be mocked for his missing front teeth, because everyone would just assume he was a hockey player. (Plus, he's already got the hair.)

    11. Instead of The Clash, Jonathan would introduce Will to The Tragically Hip.

    12. Hopper would sport a red uniform.

    13. Canadian Hopper: "Mornings are for Double-Doubles and contemplation."

    14. When Mrs. Wheeler has all the kids over for dinner, she would serve Kraft Dinner.

    18. A poster for My Bloody Valentine would hang in Jonathan's room.

    19. And lastly, when we finally get a good view of the monster:
