Its Christmas and is the season for "giving!" Its easy to get caught up in all the hype and constant advertising showing us how we can put smiles on the faces of all those around us... just buy them something.
This is where you are thinking "oh, oh, here we go.This guy is going to lecture us that Christmas is about family and memories and not about buying presents." Nope, not here. Knock yourself out, spend as much as you want its your choice and no ones business but yours!
This Blog entry is about what else you can do besides spend your money. One thing that we do each year is get in the car and go on the Sparkle tour. Load up your kids, go pick up Grandma (she'll love it), take an elderly neighbour or just go by yourself it doesn't matter.
You don't have to live in a big city to enjoy the sights on a nice Winter evening. Wherever we find ourselves over the holidays we have taken time to do the "tour". Kelvington, Wadena, Melville, Grenfell, Neudorf, Leduc, Tisdale, Regina and Wilcox have all been checked out over the years. It never disappoints.
There is an acreage in the Mclean area that is amazing, it has been a work in progress for years and if your in the area and looking for something to do go check it out. There are over 35,000 lights and every tree is lit up.
