PARTYING AND WATCHING THE NEW YEAR COME IN HAS NEVER BEEN AN IMPORTANT THING FOR ME…… 

HOWEVER……. WHEN I WAS A YOUNG BUCK FULL OF SPIT AND VINEGAR…..   I REMEMBER HEADING INTO VANCOUVER TO SEE IF I COULD STEAL A KISS BY THE BIRKS CLOCK ON GRANVILLE AND GEORGIA …… IT NEVER DID HAPPEN…..    

THE FIRST YEAR WE WERE MARRIED…. WE SPENT NEW YEARS EVE WITH DENISA’S FAMILY……

MOMENTS BEFORE  MIDNIGHT,  EVERYONE HEADED FOR THE KITCHEN TO GRAB A COOKING POT AND A SPOON AND THEN OUT TO THE FRONT PORCH…….

I WAS FORCED TO JOIN IN BUT FELT EXTREMELY FOOLISH AS I RELUCTANTLY BANGED MY POT WITH A WOODEN SPOON……

AFTER WE BOTH GOT SAVED, WE LEARNED OF WATCH NIGHT SERVICES AND STARTED TO ATTEND REGULARLY……

IT IS SAD THAT THESE INCREDIBLE SERVICES ARE GETTING HARDER TO FIND WITH EACH PASSING YEAR……

IT’S -34C WITH THE WIND CHILL FACTOR…… YOU KNOW WHERE THE LONG JOHNS ARE……..
