The month of December is perfect for spending some quality downtime with friends and family to celebrate the holidays, and take advantage of the winter wonderland that the season brings! December is traditionally a time when we all take a little break from the tedium of school and work to enjoy family gatherings and dinners, and partake in some “cool” winter sports. Read on to find out more about some of the traditional festivities, get some great ideas for keeping busy during the holiday break, and of course check out our fantastic gift idea!
Chanukah, otherwise known as “Hanukkah” or the Festival of Lights is celebrated in December. This year, the eight-day celebration, begins on Sunday, December 9th. The first night Chanukah begins with special blessings at sunset, and the holiday is commemorated through gift giving, candle lighting and various events with family and friends.
Christmas Day, December 25th, is filled with activities, gatherings and food! Families and friends exchange gifts, share traditional meals such as turkey complete with cranberries, potatoes and vegetables, as well as a variety of tasty baked goods or Christmas pudding!
The day after Christmas is Boxing Day, another public holiday. We encourage you to get out and enjoy the great outdoors and participate in some winter sports such as ice hockey, skiing, snowboarding, snow-shoeing, and everyone’s favourite… tobogganing! And last but not least, don’t forget to save a bit of your energy for the big celebrations on the 31st, when we usher in the new year.
Whatever your holiday celebrations and traditions bring, you can welcome a new family tradition with your very own crepe machine. Perfect for your own home, or gift giving, it is a unique tradition that everyone will enjoy! And don’t forget, Crepe Delicious offers catering, so that you and your friends and family can enjoy our scrumptious creations at your special holiday event. We’ll come to your venue with our own crepe makers to make your event a success.
We wish you all the best for the holidays and a happy and healthy 2013.
