My husband and I have to break up our Christmas holidays. We usually spend Christmas Eve with my family, and then Christmas Day with his. His family also lives out of town on an acreage, so the hour-long drive there Christmas morning feels like a nice way to wind down from the night before. By the time the evening rolls around, we are usually home, tired, and unbelieving of the past few days. Then it’s time to open our gifts from each other.

This Christmas evening, we made sure to watch Red Skelton for Baba. She would always talk about how comical he was, and how she and her husband loved watching his show. Neither one of us had ever seen an episode, and so we felt that it was fitting to watch his Christmas Special for the first time, together, on Christmas night. Then, we finished off the evening with National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, of course. What a wonderful end to another great holiday season. I can’t wait until next year’s Christmas events and photos.

If you happen to live in Canada, there’s a big chance that you will have snow for Christmas. If you live in Saskatchewan, it’s guaranteed to be white and cold. I honestly don’t mind this weather. I have always preferred to wear layered fall/winter attire over next to nothing in the summer. I also do not get cabin fever as I am usually going to one of my jobs, the gym, for walks, dates, or errands. Our animals can get stir crazy at times, but I just make their outdoor exercise more frequent. I figure that this snow won’t last forever, and so I might as well stay positive since Mother Nature is unpredictable.

As I mentioned, our Christmas was not without snow. It was also filled with family. I spent the morning alone preparing for the day ahead. My husband came home for a quick lunch, and then went back to work. We spent the evening of Christmas Eve at my parent’s acreage with my parents, siblings, and their children. My mum’s house is nothing short of a southwestern palace, which is always very fitting given that we live on the prairies. It felt warm, comforting, filling, and just lovely. It really was like a good, old-fashioned Christmas. It was perfect.
