Scottish Country Dancing at McMartin House

16

Scottish Country Dancers meet every Friday morning (from 9:15 to 11:30 A.M.) to learn new dances and have fun.  We begin our year in September and finish in April, with a luncheon at the end. We welcome newcomers, young in spirit, male and female, who would like to join our happy group.

Scottish Country Dancing is exercise for both the body and the brain, but without the usual routines associated with exercise. It is usually done with partners in sets of four or more dancers of all ages. It differs from the Scottish Highland dancing which is usually performed solo by younger dancers.

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.
