Getting ready for Christmas means following our family traditions: getting a Christmas tree, decorating it with whole family, building a gingerbread house together.
Live Christmas trees are sold by Home Depot, Save on Foods. Pre-lit boxed Christmas trees are sold by Home Depot, Canadian Tire, Superstore, Home Hardware, Walmart. Christmas decorations are sold everywhere.
Building a gingerbread house together is a fun family activity, where everyone has a chance to be creative, test one's patience, lough at each other's icing meltdowns. The results are usually fully eatable.
