Christmas 2020/21 – Day 12

On the twelfth day of Christmas…. ….my true love gave to me… …twelve bags of storm chips. Haven’t heard of storm chips?

Christmas 2020/21 – Day 10

On the tenth day of Christmas… My true love gave to me…. ….ten tiny toques. Ken grew up calling this type of hat a stocking cap. It can also be called a watch cap or a beanie. If you want to make a Canadian laugh out loud, call it a toboggan. This is a toboggan: […]

Christmas 2020 – Day 2

On the second day of Christmas My true love gave to me…. Two tartan kilts* (He might have to wait until next Christmas for a sporran as I daresay the post from Scotland is pretty slow with the covid.) *That would be the Newfoundland tartan on the left. The colours represent: green for the green […]

Christmas 2020 – Day 1

On the first day of Christmas… My true love gave to me A new pair of long rubber boots.* And oh, how well they fit. *I know, I know…before you gets your popcorn and cranberries in a snarl, I knows that a pair of rubber boots is technically two items but Christmas is a time […]
