‘Tis the Season

Christmas may be over a month away, but I am already completely excited! How excited, you ask? So excited that I might have woken up Mike around 6AM to decorate the apartment with snowflakes and lights (notice the Santa hat I made for our Black Keys poster)…

I love the Christmas season! There’s nothing better than getting bundled up in a cozy sweater and watching Christmas specials. This year, because I’m on a budget, I’m trying to make as many of my Christmas gifts as possible (I hope my family and friends love knitted gifts). It takes a lot longer to go the homemade route, but it’s easier on the wallet and more personal.

One of my favourite parts of the Christmas season actually took place on Saturday night, Halifax’s annual Festival of Lights Parade. It’s a really cool parade with a ton of different community floats. I had a such a great time, my face actually hurt from smiling so much.

I’ve still got a ton of schoolwork in between me and my Christmas holidays, but at least I can study by the tree and listen to some Christmas carols while I’m at it.
