Thanks for another great contest!


Favourite holiday memory is the big family gathering/dinner every year (not this year though 😷).

Mayor / Maire

Thanks for the opportunity:)

Memories of my family together during holidays are best, gonna miss it this year definitely.


Town Hero / Héro de la Ville

Favorite memory = free data from Public Mobile.


Wish all members have a wonderful holiday...


Stay safe. Stay strong

My favourite holiday memory is making a charcuterie feast each Christmas Eve-- when we were young, we just called it a "picnic".

Great Citizen / Super Citoyen

Making snow forts with my younger brother.

Thank you. 

Model Citizen / Citoyen Modèle

Christmas in Palm Springs last year.  Sunny and warm 😊

Model Citizen / Citoyen Modèle

My fondest Christmas memory was in 1999 when my family went to Disney World, Florida!

Good Citizen / Bon Citoyen

it was the year my boy's got to enjoy santa in our home. the santa was going door to door visiting neighboring children. when he came to our door on his sleigh it was the best moment  a mother can share with her children.

Several good posts here already! Yes I too recall some pretty good snow forts and igloos out in the front yard and lots of outdoor playing with the neighbour friends when growing up.


Best part of Christmas for me is never the gifts to me (I always specifically ask for nothing but never happens) but is the getting together with family and friends. This Christmas is going to be like no other but I think we will be fine. Just my wife and myself, not the 16-24 people who usually are here for Christmas dinner. That part is almost a relief this year! We are also skipping the turkey. I requested English “Sausage, Eggs, Beans & Chips” (sort of my modification to English Pub Food) but I think that got nixed.


Thanks heavens for the iPads and phones as we will be FaceTiming this year though I am already wondering if the network is going to crash with everyone else is likely doing the same. Might be like the big Blackout power failures but for internet!


Have a great Christmas everyone, make the most of it, take advantage of the opportunity to do something completely different and look forward to making up for this year...NEXT YEAR!



Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

My favourite holiday memory is sledding out behind my cousin's house one year on New Years Eve, with all of my cousins - and in -20C weather! We would only make a few runs at a time, then go inside by the heater to warm up for a bit before heading back out for more.

This year will certainly be the most memorable one...cos this one is a real Grinch stolen Christmas 🙂


The good part to this is that .. this is a year we  all will be staying home and celebrate with our own family.   🙂





Great Citizen / Super Citoyen

As retirees, our Christmas is always simple.  X'mas presents (free data+minutes) from Public were great in 2019, glad to see similar presents in 2020.  Hope this will continue and becomes our best memory of Christmas!

Town Hero / Héro de la Ville

My favourite holiday memory would be building the classic snow forts.

Mayor / Maire

Well I may not have a favourite but I think this year will be a most memorable... that is, a memory of the "holidays" (Thanksgiving, Hannukah, Christmas) that were not!

Mayor / Maire

What if I don't have one? That is still my entry  😉

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Favourite memory = free data from Public Mobile  🙂

Favorite memory was getting all the free holiday gigabizzles and minutes from public mobile!


Thanks 😉



Model Citizen / Citoyen Modèle

My favorite holiday memory was baking Christmas cookies with my kids and sitting around Christmas trees sipping hot chocolates with mini marshmallows & whipped cream 

Great Citizen / Super Citoyen

Definitely the holiday seasons of 2013. That was my first holiday in Canada. I was in Halifax NS at that time.

A good memory would be winning a contest. 😉

Retired Oracle / Oracle Retraité

My favourite holiday memory was an annual tradition when I used to live with flatmates:

Each December, we would drag the plastic Christmas tree from the closet, already fully assembled but slightly bent at the top to fit in the closet, complete with decorations and a light dusting of snow (actually accumulated dust).  😅

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

My favourite memory was a Christmas Lip sync competition with all my aunts, uncles cousins and immediate family. It was quite a hilarious way to celebrate the holidays (think 4 male cousins lip syncing and dancing to D*** in a Box with the appropriately wrapped “parcels” on the front of their pants!) 

Mayor / Maire

Wow !  Two great contests and the freebie add-ons in December.  Thanks PM.


Watching "A Christmas Story" and the Griswold's in "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" with my family.  If you need a good laugh, both movies are hilarious.
