And so the season begins.....

Tonight was the annual Parade Of Lights in Halifax. We thought we were going to be late but actually got a great parking spot and then a fabulous spot to stand. We were actually so close that a couple of times as some really big floats came by, we and those around us had to move. Claire and Sam loved it, Daniel would have preferred to be home in bed. Next year he can stay home! At this parade you have the opportunity to bring in food for the food bank and toys for needy kids. I was thrilled to see the trucks responsible for collecting the stuff overflowing. The giving was incredible! I'm hopeful that as we head further into the season that people remember what we are celebrating and that the generosity never stops.....

The pics look so fun and festive. Christmas time is a time for giving. The Christmas story is indeed the greatest story ever told, and it is the greatest example of giving.
