3.
A fleece, pull-over style sweater with a large pocket on the front, and a drawstring hood. Is almost exclusive to Saskatchewan; outside the province is usually known as a hoodie. Weirdos.
It was just another May Long in Saskatchewan, and Bob was thirsty. He put on his bunnyhug, since it was snowing, and walked to the LB, where he got the town drunk to pull him a two-four of Pil, as Bob had lost his ID as a result of his drunken belligerence the night previous. He then proceeded to the Co-op to buy some Vi-co to drink between 7 and 8 A.M., the time period in which he would lay off the Pil. With Pil and Vi-co in hand, Bob suddenly tripped over a pothole in the grid road and gibbled his ankle, creating a smelly, swampy mess of Bob, bunnyhug, and beverage. The location of Bob's mishap is now known as Regina, the only name whose pronunciation could give justice to that awful smell.

5.
Fleece or cotton hooded pullover, shirt; often with drawstrings to pull hood closer to head.

Origin of term is in question,but the one with most credence points to a combination and adaptation of terms. First, the muffs, a fashion accessory, most popular from the 1920's to the 1950's,for keeping the hands warm were most often made of rabbit or "bunny" fur. This fashion practice was adapted when the pullover hooded sweater became popular in the '50's and 60's when the pocket in front was also lined with fur from Peter Cottontail and his cousins.

The pullover sweatshirt, requiring some adjustment when donned, can call for the wearer to move the arms in a "hugging" motion when settling the pullover onto the body.

It can also feel as good as a hug when one is able to place one's cold hands into warm pockets!
As the evening around the camp fire grew cooler he gave her his bunnyhug to wear, and they held hands inside the front pocket.
