Burn or Freeze There, Either Way I’ll Be in Hell.

Heavens to Betsy, it’s Christmas Eve.

In honour of the holiday, feel free to read my politically incorrect post about winter in Canada over here at I Heart Monster.

You know, with all the free time you have. Today.

On Christmas Eve.


Where did the time even go?

  4. I’m guessing you still have alot to do for Christmas?

  5. DeAnna says:

    Merry Christmas!! Hopefully your weather improves a bit, ours went from -30 yesterday to -5 so far today.

    I’m not sure I could handle freezing weather. I’m “freezing” when it gets in the low 70’s…

    I think I read this on Christmas but didn’t have time to say I was appreciative of having something to read! Sometimes getting away from all the holiday hullabaloo really helps me focus.
    First off, you can use any generalizations you want. For crying out loud, its YOUR entry. I hate when people are nit-picky. So say Alberta all you want because that’s where you live DANG IT. People bug me today.
    Soap box removed…moving on.
    Did you know they aren’t called Samoas anymore? SO LAME. Caramel delights. I’m pretty sure its a white name but what do I know? And I can say that because I am white.
    As far as I’m concerned Canada can have Santa Claus. I’m not against the fat man, I’m just more about Jesus on Christmas. There’s so much emphasis on all things jolly and all things FAKE. I save my joy for mangers and silent nights. REAL things. Plus I always hear about childhood stories of feeling deceived by parents. My mom never did Santa and I’m actually very grateful she didn’t.
    All the Canadians I have met are super nice. According to my numbers they are exponentially nicer than Americans. I might change my mind if I ever meet a mean Canadian but I’m not hoping for that.
    Being in winter makes me miss home. Not that I don’t enjoy the snow and ice and blah blah blah, I just miss being warm outside. I miss the sun too. I think I might start taking Vitamin E. Dude, I hope it never gets that cold here. I know I’ve been in -20 in Chicago but nothing colder. I keep hearing stories from people but I’m praying for things to stay how they are or get warmer. I used to think people were crazy that lived in snow but you and I both had to run face first into it. I would say you won on the sucky winters though. Oh man, remind me never to google poutine again. I’m moderately traumatized. Do you eat that? You must because you put it in there but it can’t be good can it? Is that like a normal thing there? I’m making it better in my head by saying its chili cheese fries.
    Thank God we don’t have to drive anywhere far around here. I’m the definition a grandma driver since I’ve encountered the snow. Luckily everyone else is just as paranoid as I am. I laughed out loud when we were home (CA) and the traffic was bad because of rain. Pshaw! They don’t know winter like we do. And yet I will never know your winter.
    You won’t freeze or burn, that’s where REAL Jesus comes in :)
