Merry Christmas from Canada!

Hi guys, Merry Christmas!

Snow pile at shopping center's parking lot in our hometown in Canada

What are you doing for Christmas this year? We decided to take a short break from vagabonding and went back to celebrate Christmas with family in Canada. In contrary to the summery Australia that we just left behind, it’s cold and snowy here. Well, not that bad, it’s only -5 °Celsius (it’s about 23 Fahrenheit). Definitely could get worse, and we know some of you are in much colder places. We picked the picture of snow piles in a shopping centre nearby to illustrate the normal scene in our place. Is it snowy in wherever you are too?

    I didn’t know you were from London! My parents live in Woodstock, my sister in Port Stanley. One of these days we’ll have to meet up in Ontario. Merry Christmas.

      Hi Deb, yep, we are from London before we left for backpacking. Ryan is from there. Woodstock, eh, we usually pass it in the way to or from Toronto :). Did you live around here too? Are you somewhere around? If so, we should meet up :D

    Oddly most of the Canadians that I know are from that end of Ontario (or my geography is so poor that it seems such.)
    Good to see you guys are doing well. Yeah, it is snowy here. We have 6 inches on the ground, but thankfully no more predicted.

      Wow, I think that’s quite true for me too. I don’t mean friends from right here. I mean the Canadian people that I met randomly abroad or in online travelblog community.
      Are you in Germany? Nice white Christmas I hope you had there :)
      Haven’t checked the weather forecast, but I assume it’s going to stay cold and will be snowy again until Feb or Mar. But that’s okay, snow is one of the reason we are coming home. We avoid snow when traveling because… well… not very comfortable we think traveling in the cold… and winter clothing can’t really fit the bag. So we missed the snow!

    That snow is crazy! Well, for me…considering having light snow cover on the mountains around San Francisco makes the news every time…haha. It’s nice that you guys went home for the holidays – hope you had a Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year :-)

      Yea, we hadn’t seen much snow either for the past 1.5 years until we came home. Well, except for the snow on the Southern Alps of NZ. The snow really makes us feel like home :)
      Merry Christmas and Happy New year!!

    We’re currently going through a typical Central Texas winter. One day it will be 24F degrees during the night time and the next it will be 77F (like today) during the day. The general consensus is, if you don’t like the weather, just wait an hour. :P

    I’ve never seen that much snow before!

      Haha, is that so! It’s quite flat cold here right now. The plus side is, you know what to wear without consulting the weather forecast!
