So this is Christmas

As I put together this little video for all my readers and my special friends I have been thinking of the many different Christmases I have had over the last fifteen years and I must admit its hard to go past Christmas with good friends on the ski slopes in Sliver Star

or the look on the kids faces when we spent Christmas at the Banff Springs Hotel

and Chateau Lake Louise

then there was Disneyland

Christmas Disney Land

In the words of Dickens

Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childhood days, recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth, and transport the traveller back to his own fireside and quiet home!

This year it will be with special friends and family at their house and mine enjoying the

simple pleasures of life

Does it get much better than this

I have seen Christmas trees that reach for the sky in Paris and San Francisco but I kinda like my little tree this year

Its quite amazing what you can do with a recycled pipe and some twisted willow

Christmas is not always full of joy and Douglas Copeland once said

Christmas makes everything twice as sad.

Most of all lets remember one of life’s lesson is always moving on. It’s okay to look back and think of fond memories but keep moving forward

Life wasn’t meant to be travelled backwards and you will never find your future in the rear view mirror.

Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas
