During a concert in December 2002, Charlotte Church kindly told her audience that she loved being in America. When her comment was met with a stony silence, Church sang "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)" and quickly left the stage. Some time later, she reappeared to make an announcement: "Someone told me backstage that we're in Canada... I'm sorry!"
["I do love Canada -- Toronto's one of my favourite cities," she added. "I know you think I'm lying now -- but I'm not." Among the nasty gibes in the Toronto press? "Back to geography class, girl" and "Surely chestnuts weren't the only thing being roasted!"]
