I had a different Christmas once again this year. After two years of being in Toronto for Christmas because of covid and not seeing my mom and brother, my sister and I planned to go to Cornwall to be with them this year. But the weather had a different idea. Like many people, we had to change plans. On boxing day, we went to Cornwall. I secretly asked my sister-in-law to get my gift for my sister since I can’t go shopping yet and she did. When we went to my mom’s residence, I had a surprise. I saw one of my old teachers from public school. It was nice to see her again

Not Christmas day in the regular calendar year but my family celebrated in January. On December 25th, Mom, Dad, Grandma, Jayme, and I quietly celebrated Christmas. The rest of my family were not able to come because of the snow and some of them were unwell.
On January 21st, my aunt, uncle, cousins, Jayme’s boyfriend (Ian), and my immediate family celebrated Christmas. We ate meatloaf, not turkey but it was really good. We had a lot of fun playing together that day!!!
