This holiday season will be special. I and my husband Cassiano have moved to Canada in 2017, and had our first baby in Dec. 2018. This year was pretty challenging taking care of a newborn without any family around to help, but we are happy and excited about going back to Brazil to spend the holidays with our family! They will meet our son for the very first time, and we will celebrate his 1-year birthday with our loved family and friends!

The time between Christmas and New Years when everyone mellows.  No expectations - just  cozy afternoons, hanging out with friends and family, eating good food and playing in the snow!

I love this holiday because family comes home that I don't get too see throughout the year, which mainly includes my almost 3 yr old grand-daughter (she will be 3 on the 8th of December... Besides her, I love the snow and love going around and seeing all the Christmas decorations and lights on the houses.

My favourite part about the holiday season is spending time with family and getting time off university after finishing exams.

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Turkey dinner.  Twice at least.  That's my favorite.

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

My favourite part of the holiday is to spend time with my kids as they will be on holidays soon. Take them to fun places around my city Halifax. Places like the Museum, Parks etc. Take them to cosy eateries, shop around with them for christmas gifts for our loved ones and family.

For me, this holiday period will be a time for me to reconnect with some of my friends i have not seen in a long while.

In addition to taking my kids out for shopping and having fun, i will also take them to available shows to see Santa claus and have fun. My wife will not also be left out from the groove. It will be a family thing.

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Our son is 6 years old and the excitement, magic and wonder he experiences throughout the month of December is by far my favourite part.
