Already creeping to the end of 2014. Time seems to fly a lot faster than when it did when I was a kid…
I still remember how exciting playing in the snow was! Building 5ft forts and tobogganing down a steep hill, drinking hot chocolate fast enough so the marshmallow doesn’t FULLY melt, eating icicles just bc everyone did it, everywhere became a playground.
Maybe it’s just age or my lack of enthusiasm for whether anything below freezing, but winter kinda sucks! You start to have responsibilities of shoveling snow (not that I do since I live in an apartment), driving in the mucky slushy snow (not that I have a car or anything), or having to commute to work/school every morning (not that I do that everyday lol).
Getting into the “Christmas spirit” is due to the reminder thats everywhere on ads and obnoxious mall decorations.. Even then, they kind of killed it for me knowing that it’s all just marketing strategy.
Did I become a Grinch?
BUT. Having said all that, I love Christmas. It’s a time where people seem to just relax.. Where time slows down and people are just friendlier when presents are involved aren’t they?
We visited Christmas at the Distillery District here in Toronto, just some quick photos I took for viewing pleasure 🙂
