The great thing about the Christmas "season" is that it's a great excuse to spend time with loved ones. Like many others, I too enjoy snow -- and shovelling it (unless there's too much of it). And, unlike many others, I love the fact that Christmas is the time of the year when the sun sets so early. There's something atmospheric and strangely calming about early nightfall.

Family and friends along with Skiing!

To be honest these really hasn’t been much that got me excited about a Christmas in recent years.


That said, Christmas was that time of a year I’d put a smile on peoples faces as I “bah humbug” everything and everyone, first with a serious look then a smile.


This year however, it’s even better.  My niece is home finally from Newfoundland and has brought an new bundle of joy into our lives.  JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS!


So now I have more reason to “bah humbug” while giving a evil grin...  as we spend spend spend on a 2 week old who doesn’t even understand the season yet much less that hand in front of his Face!


Have a happy humbug all, and to all a good night!
