Christmas Day!

9

 

Many Christians in Canada mark the birth of Jesus Christ on December 25, which is known as Christmas Day. It is a day of celebration when many Canadians exchange gifts and enjoy festive meals.

Many Canadians have a day off work on December 25 and many spend the day with close relatives or friends. It is customary to exchange gifts, enjoy a special festive meal and, perhaps, attend a special church service.

The traditions centered on Christmas gifts in Canada vary a lot between families. In some families, a mythical figure called Santa Claus brings gifts. He travels on a sleigh pulled by reindeer, enters homes via the chimney and leaves presents and candy in Christmas stockings or in a pile under the Christmas tree.

Symbols of Christmas Day

There are many symbols of Christmas. These include images of baby Jesus and the Holy family in the stable, stars and Christmas trees. Another important symbol of Christmas is Santa Claus. This is a mythical figure with origins in European, particularly British, Dutch and German, cultures. He is a jolly man who wears a red suit, has a long white beard, lives at the North Pole and travels in a sleigh pulled by reindeer.

The Wednesday Morning Group Clubs at Mc Martin House

14

McMartin House, a National Historic Site owned by the Ontario Heritage Trust, is still home today to the Perth District Senior Craft Fellowship.
Some people play Bridge or Euchre for intellectual stimulation and social interaction.  Others learn crafts with a craft club (for the same reasons).  Still others find the same sorts of satisfaction in a book club.  “There are many different types of book clubs, but they all have the same goal: To read, discuss, and learn from a book”.
McMartin House hosts two different groups, one which meets the first Wednesday Morning of the month from 10:00 A.M. to 12:00 noon, BookClubW1 (directed by Doris Coates) and one that meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays from 9:30 to 11:30, BookClubW2&4 directed by Ruth Craig.

Share a laugh over a game of bridge, take a hook rug class on Celtic designs or practice your best line dancing moves. These activities and much more are available to seniors at the historical McMartin House.

Doris Coates, Activity Director for BookClubW1, the 1st Wednesday Book Club, reports that this club has been meeting at McMartin House each month from September to June for over fifteen years. Book selections for the coming year are made at our June meeting, when we also select our monthly discussion leader. Our selections are mainly fiction but have included other genres, even poetry. Each month we exchange ideas, thoughts and research on our book selection and the book’s author.

McMartin House Membership is required.  One $20 Annual Membership Fee permits a member to join any number of activities. Most activities have small charges each session to cover supplies, resources, refreshments etc.

Thanksgiving day in Canada

12

Thanksgiving day in Canada is on October 10, 2016.

Thanksgiving Day in Canada has been a holiday on the second Monday of October since 1957. It is a chance for people to give thanks for a good harvest and other fortunes in the past year.

Many people have a day off work on the second Monday of October. They often use the three-day Thanksgiving weekend to visit family or friends who live far away, or to receive them in their own homes.

Many people also prepare a special meal to eat at some point during the long weekend. Traditionally, this included roast turkey and seasonal produce, such as pumpkin, corn ears and pecan nuts. Now, the meal may consist of other foods, particularly if the family is of non-European descent.

The native peoples of the Americas held ceremonies and festivals to celebrate the completion and bounty of the harvest long before European explorers and settlers arrived in what is now Canada. Early European thanksgivings were held to give thanks for some special fortune. An early example is the ceremony the explorer Martin Frobisher held in 1578 after he had survived the long journey in his quest to find a northern passage from Europe to Asia.

From the end of the First World War until 1930, both Armistice Day and Thanksgiving Day were celebrated on the Monday closest to November 11, the anniversary of the official end of hostilities in World War I. In 1931, Armistice Day was renamed Remembrance Day and Thanksgiving Day was moved to a Monday in October. Since 1957, Thanksgiving Day has always been held on the second Monday in October.

Thanksgiving Day in Canada is linked to the European tradition of harvest festivals. A common image seen at this time of year is a cornucopia, or horn, filled with seasonal fruit and vegetables. The cornucopia, which means “Horn of Plenty” in Latin, was a symbol of bounty and plenty in ancient Greece. Turkeys, pumpkins, ears of corn and large displays of food are also used to symbolize Thanksgiving Day. Other popular activities include outdoor breaks to admire the spectacular colors of the Canadian autumn, hiking, and fishing.

Your Time to Sing – MERA Community Choir

5

 

Your Time to Sing – MERA Community Choir is taking place on wednesday mornings  from 10:30 am – 12:00 pm between September 21 through November 23, 2016.
 
New singers can pay a drop-in fee of $10 per session for two sessions to see whether the format works for them.  For continuity sake, there is not a pay-as-you-go option.
 
 
Registration: You must pre-register with Marilyn at meraschoolhouse@bell.net  as we need at least 12 people to proceed.
 
 
Song Leader
 
Almonte-based Jennifer Noxon sang her way through summer camps and school musicals, lead an adult ESL choir, and performed as a contemporary singer/songwriter on the folk circuit for 10 years. Most recently she acted as vocal coach for Fern Martin’s smash hit Trashdance!  Tired of hearing “I wish I could sing” from various adults in her community, Jennifer Noxon set ofproceedf to complete a two-week intensive community choir training course in Victoria, BC – offered by the founders of the Ubuntu Choir Network
 
Why Sing?  “When you sing, musical vibrations move through you, altering your physical and emotional landscape. Group singing, for those who have done it, is the most exhilarating and transformative of all. It takes something incredibly intimate, a sound that begins inside you, shares it with a roomful of people and it comes back as something even more thrilling: harmony,” writes Stacy Horn in Time magazine (8/16/13).
The fee is $100.
