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.”
