Canada Waits For Christmas – December 1st

Canada Waits For Christmas is my Advent calendar series celebrating cold Canadian culture and giving a shout-out to those artists and influencers from north of the 49th parallel. Got an idea for the “calendar”? Share it with me in the comments.

As I write this, the temperature is -25 degrees Celsius, the snow is piled high, and the school buses aren’t running for the third day this week due to poor road conditions. How Canadian is that?

‘Snow Canada’ (1905) is a rare Canadian masterpiece by Montreal-born James Wilson Morrice (1865-1924).

“Frozen Puck to the Head” is a Canadian classic, upbeat and playful, by Captain Tractor, a Celtic Folk band out of Edmonton, Alberta.

“And his heart made a noise like a truck he forgot to plug in.”

This meme is from Meanwhile in Canada. Need a chuckle? You can visit them on Facebook.

This quote by Canadian scientist and activist David Suzuki is from Brainy Quote. Visit them to find brainy quotes on every subject by folks from everywhere.

The future doesn’t exist. The only thing that exists is now and our memory of what happened in the past. But because we invented the idea of a future, we’re the only animal that realized we can affect the future by what we do today.
