WINDSOR, N.S. – Turns out, Windsor is hashtag blessed.

Coming in at number 10 in Expedia.ca’s happiest places in Canada list (out of 40), Windsor finds itself in the company of Lake Louise/Banff, AB (number one), and Trout River, NFLD (number six). 

After sorting through over 100,000 social media conversations for hashtags, including: #cheerful, #happy, and of course, #blessed, Windsor had 172,877 Instagram posts tagged with similar hashtags, according to Expedia.

Here’s the blurb on Expedia.ca explaining why Windsor may have ranked so high.

“Does hockey make you happy? Of course it does! Windsor is the birthplace of hockey and a must-visit for anyone who calls themselves a hockey fan. The Windsor Hockey Heritage Centre is only open until the end of September, but luckily, playing this sport is even better for the soul. Do some skating of your own on Long Pond, then join the locals for a pint at Spitfire Arms Pub. You can ask them why they’re so happy yourself, but we bet it has something to do with—you guessed it—hockey.” – Expedia.ca

Other Nova Scotia communities that made it into the Top 40 include: Digby (number 14) and Antigonish (number 26).
