I think a lot of people are confused by the double meaning of toboggan. In
most parts of the US it's now understood as a runner-less sliding implement
with a curved-up front, usually long enough for three or more to sit on. But
it's also a type of winter hat, knitted with a long point (down to your
shoulders). Still used in Ohio, and some parts of upstate NY at least.
