It's been another great year, and the holiday season is a great capper for this year. Of course, we've seen some tragedies, some heartbreak, some pain, and some tears, and through it all we cannot forget the lives lost and the families and friends affected. My heart goes out to those who suffered loss during this time, and you're loved ones are in my prayers and thoughts.
In saying this, visit your family and friends. Hug one another. Celebrate the holiday season with happiness, smiles, laughter, and cheer as you embrace both the spirit of the season and the people closest to you that matter most. Most of all, be safe and sound during this festive time, and keep a watchful eye on little ones who are enjoying their best Christmas memories to date.
The World Junior Championships kick off tomorrow, and Canada will play Finland in Edmonton in the afternoon. If you have access to a television, huddle around that with your family and friends, and cheer on the boys as they look for gold in Alberta!
Until next time, Merry Christmas to all, and to all, a good night!
