Merry Christmas from Canada!

Weekly Topic: How do you celebrate your Christmas/Hanukkah this year?

Dec 25, 2020

This year, I think our Christmas will be quiet and peaceful. In my province of Alberta, Canada, we aren't permitted to get together in our homes with friends or extended family at the moment.  We may meet up with a couple of friends for some outdoor fun such as skating or sledding.  Some members of our community league flood an ice trail and turn on the lights at night.  (please see the photo below)  There are also many walking trails, so I think we will go for some long walks. It has been -18C here lately, so we need to bundle up before we head outside.  On Christmas Day, we eat lots of sweet treats such as chocolates and cookies, play board games and watch Christmas movies.  We sometimes drink egg nog or hot chocolate.  For Christmas dinner this year, I am cooking a turkey, gravy, asparagus, and roasted potatoes.  For dessert, I am serving pumpkin pie with whipped cream.  How will you celebrate the holidays this year?  What are some of your favourite Christmas movies?

This is our Christmas tree this year.  It has a red, white, and grey colour scheme with Santa's clothesline decorations (pants, scarves, mittens, sweaters, hats, and stockings). I change the theme every few years.  What do you think of it?
