Toronto’s High Park Cherry Blossoms

It happens once a year for one week... two, if you're lucky. The city's Sakura Trees BLOOM into beautiful flowers. You may know them as, "cherry blossoms."
They brighten up the parks they live in and they invade our Instagram News Feeds. They make us happy, because all of this means patio season (Spring) has finally arrived in our beautiful city of Toronto.

Did you know...? That Toronto Citizens were gifted 2000 cherry blossom trees from the Citizens of Tokyo, Japan. This happened on April 1, 1959 and it was a way for the Japanese citizens to say, "thank you" to those in Toronto who helped Japanese refugees after World War II. Since then, they've planted even more and you can find the trees throughout the park and the city in the spirit of continued friendship between the people of Canada and Japan.

How do you say, “Toronto”?

Riddle me this...

Is there a "right" way to pronounce the name of our big, beautiful city? 

Is it Toronto? Or Turrono? How do you say it? 

Jon and I do not pronounce it the same and it has been an ongoing discussion between us for LITERALLY years and will likely last for years more. 
(You will find a portion of this ongoing discussion in the video below.)

We've come to the conclusion that there is no right way to say, "Toronto" and at the end of the day, it's still the best city in the world!*
