Crazy - eh?

White flakes were falling softly.
Snow crunched under our booted feet while we walked.
Our breath created wispy smoky-like puffs.
Cheeks and noses were a rosy red.

The downtown city park was illuminated by trees decked out in colourful Christmas lights and bonfires cheerfully crackling.  Two horse-drawn wagons were providing rides around the park and hot chocolate was being passed out by people wearing large box-trays around their necks.  People in large puffy parkas milled about laughing and enjoying the festive atmosphere.

We went with the kids.   
It was a fun outing.
As we stomped our feet and clapped our mitt-clad hands hands in front of one of the fires I couldn't help but wondering if only Canadians were this crazy.

You see, it was -17 degrees!

 It was COLD.
