Snow… and the Christmas Spirit

Christmas Eve


It’s Christmas Eve and, incredibly for Iqaluit in December, the temperature has risen to a balmy minus 5 degrees. Naturally, that sort of increase above our normally frigid clear weather means snow and, for the first time in the entire season, I have finally found the Christmas Spirit.

Honestly, with my wife being some 2000 miles away, and having been working at a grueling pace doing Bail Court this past week, it has been difficult to get in to the holiday mood. I’ve tried the usual things… Xmas movies and the like… but it wasn’t until the snow started to fall late this afternoon that it really felt like Christmas. It’s not blizzard conditions outside exactly, but we are getting that thick, swirling sort of snowfall that makes it feel all cozy inside. It’s supposed to be the same tomorrow and the day after…

Merry Christmas everyone…
