Christmas Day!

 

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.

In some Canadian families and in the United States, 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. In other families, individual members exchange carefully selected gifts. Popular gifts are toys, games and candy for children and clothes, music, alcohol and practical or luxury items for adults. Canadians may open their presents on Christmas Eve after a special church service or during the morning or after lunch on Christmas Day.

The original meaning of Christmas is a special church service, or mass, to celebrate the birth of Christ. The story of the Nativity, or the events surrounding the birth of Jesus, are particularly important in religious celebrations of Christmas. However, many traditions that are around today have their roots in pre-Christian winter festivals. These include the importance of candles and decorations made from evergreen bushes and tree, symbolizing everlasting light and life.

Lake Links Annual Workshop

Lake Links 2019 will be held on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26 @ the Perth Civitan Hall.

Join us for the 18th Annual Lake Links workshop to learn about the many citizen science initiatives available to you. Keynote speaker, Kat Kavanaugh of the Water Rangers, will deliver this year’s theme: Enhancing, Restoring & Exploring: Applications for Citizen Science on Your Lake.

 

What is Lake Links?

 
Lake Links is a one-day workshop held every October, in Perth, Ontario. It attracts citizens and scientists to share ways we can help sustain our lakes and rivers. Individuals spread across five watersheds in Eastern Ontario (and beyond) attend this day-long event to learn, network and see what’s new. Each year we address the lake and river issues that matter most to our communities with expert speakers, breakout sessions, and dynamic presentations. Watersheds Canada is just one of the many organizations that make Lake Links possible. Each year we receive support from various partners across the environmental sector.
