Christmas traditions

Holiday happenings from youth in your community

W

e asked West Shore youth to write to us about their Christmas traditions. Here is a selection of those responses. We’re sad there wasn’t room for all the entries, so we’ve posted them online at www.vicnews.com under the West Shore neighbourhood on Christmas Eve day. Thank you to all the kids who shared their traditions, or visions, and the teachers who helped and inspired the students to participate. – Goldstream News Gazette

Christmas Pickle by Regan Hall Willway elementary My family has lots of traditions for Christmas. My favourite tradition is that our family has a Christmas pickle that we hang on our tree. Some of my friends have never heard of a Christmas pickle but we always have one. It is a delicate, glass ornament that is shaped like a dill pickle. it has some green glitter on it. Every year after we have decorated the Christmas tree, my mom hides the pickle in the tree. Because the pickle is green like the tree it’s hard to find. When we wake up Christmas morning, who ever finds the pickle gets an extra present. It isn’t ever a big present but it is still fun.

Grinch music and roast beast by Oskar Hiltermann, Grade 3 Colwood elementary One thing my family does every year is going to the truck parade. One of my favorite truck’s is the Grinch truck because it play’s music while it passes. Another thing my family does is decorate our Christmas tree and put up our light’s on our balcony. We also have a special Christmas dinner with my grandparents. We have roast beast and potatoes and for dessert we would have chocolate Rice Krispie squares that are homemade by my mom. We also

Last year I found the pickle. One year we had to get two new pickles because I took it to show and tell and it got broken. My mom bought a new pickle and then I dropped it by mistake and it broke all over the floor. We pretend it is still my mom’s old pickle that we hide on the tree. My mom says it is a German tradition, but we aren’t German. We buy lots of pickle ornaments for our friends so they can have a Christmas pickle tradition too. When I grow up I am going to have a Christmas pickle for our family too.

play video games like Minecraft on my XBOX account. I am the unwrapping machine 9000 when I open my presents. I also hang my stocking on the fireplace. I am not going to light a fire because it might burn Santa. No offense, but I am going to spy on Santa to see how many presents he gives me. I am going to put security cameras were my tree is. I might invite my friends over for a Christmas party. On Christmas Eve I’m going to open one (present). And on Christmas morning I’m going to open the rest.

My Christmas Traditions by Naomi El-Nahas Grade 3/4 Sangster school On Christmas Eve me and my mom and my brother make cookies for Santa. Me and my brother wake up really early in the morning and we get to open one present. We get to open the other ones when our parents are awake. Then we eat breakfast. Then my mom’s best friend comes over with her family and then we eat turkey for dinner with them. After I play with her daughter on our swings. The I open the present she gets me and she opens the gift I get her. Then we all eat pumpkin pie. I would like to add giving Santa’s reindeer carrots

A Christmas list by Sheryn Basham, age 11 John Stubbs middle school I woke at five in the morning. I burst out of bed rushing to my parents room. “Wake up!” I shouted. “It’s Christmas!” “Wait until nine.” My mother told me lazily. Fine. I thought. I’ll just do something else until nine. Here is what I did that one Christmas. Number one, make some Christmas brownies, shaped like pine trees or gingerbread men, just don’t burn down the house. Number two, take the dog for a walk. Who doesn’t enjoy a nice Christmas walk? This works for other animals too (cats, rabbits, guinea pigs). Number three, read a book. I know, I know, but save your ‘What’s’ and ‘Do I have to’s ‘ for later, if you find a good book, you might actually enjoy yourself, I know, a book? Fun? But I’m serious, go read a book.

A tree-shaped cake by Dakota, Grade 6 Ruth King elementary My favourite holiday tradition is Christmas Eve. My sister and I make a Christmas tree shape cake. It takes about one hour to make the cake. Then when we are done, we save it for Christmas dinner. On Christmas morning we put the finishing touches on the cake. Then we go and open the stockings and the presents under the tree. For the rest of the day we look at all the stuff and learn how to play with it, all the stuff that

Holiday Traditions by Keagan Tait John Stubbs middle school We have two strange holiday traditions in my family that I want to tell you about – getting Christmas dinner every year and putting up our tree. We think about Christmas dinner all year long in our family because right after one Christmas dinner, my Dad, who does all the meal-planning, shopping, and cooking in our house, starts saving-up points from Thrifty’s so he can get the ingredients for our next Christmas dinner for free, (or almost free).  My Mom and I are NOT ALLOWED to spend his points on anything else! Where we place our tree is our second strange tradi-

Number four, watch Christmas specials like “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” the clay version, it’s cuter. Number five, run around your neighborhood singing Christmas carols at the top of your lungs, someone will appreciate your beautiful singing voice. Number six, build with snow! Might it be an igloo or a snowman, a car or an airplane, hey, you could build a secret compartment filled with snowballs for later use. If it doesn’t snow in your area, then ignore this section completely. And, last but not least, number seven, clean up the house. Family and friends must be coming, it’s Christmas, or just clean up for your parents or, make them breakfast in bed, they’ll appreciate it. Anyways, that’s my Christmas list, hope you enjoyed. Merry Christmas.

we got. Before we do all that my dad makes my mom, sister and me breakfast. We have pancakes, bacon and eggs. The pancakes look like Christmas trees and the bacon is so crispy. The eggs are just scrambled. After breakfast we look at all the presents. After that it is 5 p.m. time for dinner, we have a cooked turkey and potatoes. Then after have the Christmas tree shape cake. It is really good.

tion. Every year for the past four years, since we got our two family cats, we have had to put up the artificial family Christmas tree in my bedroom. We found out that our cats would eat the tree needles and decorations any time they were left alone with the tree. Not only could they get sick, it would leave bare spots on the tree.  So, every Christmas morning, I get to wake up, and BOOM – all the presents are there, right at my feet! I wake up the rest of the family and then everyone sits around in my room in their pajamas and we open the presents there. We even let the cats come in and play with the wrapping paper. Thank you for reading about two of my holiday traditions.  I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

White Christmas? Not likely this year

NEWS GAZETTE

There’s a slim chance snowflakes will fall on Christmas Day in Greater Victoria. “It’s looks like it’s going to be a fairly mild and dry one this year,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Andre Besson. A ridge of high pressure off the west coast of Vancouver Island is holding back the next precipitation-carrying system, he added, leaving the chances for white stuff on Dec. 25 slim to none. For folks who like to head up to Mount Washington for a ski holiday, no snow is expected mid-week there, either. Known for a huge base of snow through the season, the mountain had yet to open for 2013-14 as of late last week due to a lack of snow. ddescoteau@vicnews.com

him,” she said. “Christmas is already a stressful time, it’s a sad time for these kids.” Foster parent Sandy Case has known foster families who have received children on Christmas Eve. “Sometime you have to rewrap stuff you’ve bought for other kids and just shift gifts around,” Case said. “It’s really rare that it happens. The ministry really tries to avoid removing children around Christmas.” MacKay has three biological children aged “Christmas 17, 15 and 11 and four is already a foster children aged five, four, and a pair of twostressful time, it’s year olds. a sad time for “My kids have grown up sharing their lives with these kids.” other kids,” said MacKay. – Nicola MacKay “It’s such a unique lifestyle.” MacKay and her husband both worked in child care and decided to take in children on a temporary basis to provide respite services, but that quickly turned into full-time foster parenting 10 years ago. Over the years they’ve tweaked their holidays. As a result of a foster child’s request, the family adopted the tradition of opening one gift on Christmas Eve. “Little kids can’t tell you their traditions,” she said. “But when older children have family traditions they tell us and we try to incorporate them.” charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Christmas Day goes to the dogs Charla Huber News staff

On Christmas Eve Pam Martin hangs about 100 tiny stockings for Santa to fill. She hangs one for each of her four-legged holiday guests at Dogwood Boarding Kennels and has done so since her mom made them 16 years ago. When Christmas morning comes, each magically holds a pet-friendly treat, always bearing in mind allergies of each individual pooch. “The stocking are more for the public, not the dogs, they don’t really care,” said Pam’s husband Peter Martin. It’s not unusual for a pet owner to leave wrapped gifts for a pet to get

Military boosts United Way Don Descoteau News staff

The largest contributor to the United Way of Greater Victoria’s annual fundraising campaign gave it a major shot in the arm. With the newly constructed Navy Holiday Village lit up in the background at CFB Esquimalt, the Department of National Defence team shone a bright light on the annual workplace fundraising campaign, adding $555,000 to the 2013-14 regional total. Cmdr. Luc Cassivi, base commander, gave kudos to organizers and volunteers for their efforts and noted there is “more to come.” “There was great participation across the formation and a lot of excitement generated throughout,” he said. The contribution from military and civilian personnel at the base and other defence-related workplaces helped push the overall United Way campaign total just over the 80 per cent mark toward the $6-million goal, said United Way interim CEO Heather Gardiner. “We’re just tickled pink,” she said of this year’s DND donation, down slightly from last year’s $607,000 contribution. “To have one group come around and raise that kind of money is just an amazing feat. They’re just such an amazing part of our community.” As for hitting the regional goal, Gardiner said the organization remains very hopeful. “We’re not done yet; there’s still campaigns running. We get news in every day.” ddescoteau@vicnews.com

TV and Vision

Eye care experts generally agree: watching television will not harm your eyes or vision if the TV room is lit properly and if you follow a few viewing tips. In fact, there is usually less strain involved in TV viewing than in doing close work such as sewing or reading. Watching TV for long stretches of time can leave your eyes fatigued and now that the monsoons have arrived, most of us are spending more time inside. Here are a few hints to help make TV viewing more comfortable. TV viewing tips: - Make sure your television set is properly installed and the antenna properly adjusted. - Place the set to avoid glare reflections from lamps, windows and other bright sources. - Adjust brightness and contrast controls to individual and/or viewer’s taste and comfort. - Have the set at approximately eye level. Avoid having to look up or down at the picture. - Avoid staring at the screen for lengthy periods Briefly look away from the picture, around the room or out the window. - Wear lenses prescribed for vision correction, if advised to do so by your eye care practitioner. - View from a distance of at least five times the width of the television screen. Some viewers, especially those over 50 years old, may find relief with special glasses for television viewing. Consult with your Optometrist if you find general vision discomfort or eye strain while watching TV.

Christmas morning. The holiday business boom starts mid-December and stretches into early January at the Highlands kennel, and in 35 years, the couple has never spent the holiday away. “We’ve never had a normal Christmas morning,” said Peter. Before gathering around the tree to open gifts the Martins clean the pens and feed the animals. After opening their presents and getting the turkey in the oven, the couple head back to the kennels, just a quick walk from their home – to check on the animals once more. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

OUR VIEW

Christmas Day: a time for peace Three words often come to mind at this time of year: joy, love and peace. Christmas is a time of rest for most, a time when the pace of non-retail business slows, schools shut down and the joy of socializing is more at the forefront. Even those folks who find themselves working over the holidays – thank goodness for them – usually gain a compensating peaceful break elsewhere in their schedules. For people in our communities who have few assets, are at risk of homelessness, or have no family or friends to dine with, Christmas dinners held at Our Place, the Rainbow Kitchen, Glad Tidings Church and other venues can be a source of loving comfort, not to mention a solid meal. We are often reminded at this time of year of the British and German soldiers who, on Christmas Eve in 1914 during the First World War, set aside their rifles and joined together for a day of carolling and merry-making on the Western Front. They knew in their hearts that peace was what they were truly seeking, the chance to leave anger, impatience and self-centredness behind, at least for a brief time. We are encouraged to do so today and take a few moments to smile at or chat with our neighbours, offer a kind word or smile to the beggar on the street corner who seldom receives them, do something out of the ordinary that shows we care about others. That was the message the namesake of this special day was attempting to get across, and one that people of all faiths or beliefs can agree on and practice. Even when it seems tough to muster up a smile or a compliment, finding the strength to do so, as literary character Ebenezer Scrooge found out so profoundly, never ends badly. So whatever your plans for Dec. 25, try to remember that joy, love and peace are available within you, not just now, but all through the year.

Kyle Wells/News staff

Anna Cochrane, eight months old, left, and her brother Owen, 3, sit on Santa’s lap at Westshore Town Centre Mall. Santa is visiting many locations in the Western Communities as he gets ready for his big night.

& QA

with Santa

Kyle Wells of the Goldstream News Gazette recently had the chance to sit down with Santa at the Westshore Town Centre mall and ask him some questions about what the holidays mean to him and how he celebrates.

Q: What are your plans for the West Shore? A: I’m just visiting a lot of little kids here and there. We have the (Westshore Town Centre) mall, we have Bear Mountain’s hotel, Jenn’s Little Bears (Early Childhood Educations Centre), the Priory. So just getting out and about, hanging out with kids and making them happy. … West Shore is the best. Q: Have you had any unusual requests this year? A: There was one girl that all she wanted was a Slap Chop and she recited the whole commercial. The dicer for making salads. “Because I want my family to be slimmer and eat better.” That’s all she wanted. My favourite little one is a little girl named Leah, and this is her fourth year visiting with Santa, and she averages about 16 visits in four weeks. She just comes in, we cuddle for about 90 seconds, she gets a candy cane, gives me a kiss on the cheek and off she runs. She just loves Santa. It’s so heartwarming. Q: What do you get up to at the North Pole during the year? A: Well, you know, we spend a lot of the year just making toys and getting ready for the next year. The elves are all very busy. We give them some time off after Christmas to catch their breath. They have to get a rest too, they work pretty hard all year and it’s non-stop, especially the last couple of months, they’re just grinding out the toys. Q: Do you get a vacation? A: Oh yeah, Santa manages to head south for a couple of weeks – find some sunshine. Q: What do you like about visiting with people at malls and other places? A: It’s just little things. A kid will come up and they’re

so excited to see you that it’s all one word when they ask you for something. … And then the other ones, they come running down the hall “Santa, Santa, Santa,” they get in front of you and it’s all of a sudden – zip (silence). My youngest visitor this year was five days old. Hard to get a pose when they’re like Jell-o. Q: What’s the true meaning of Christmas? A: Family time. The happiness and joy that you get by spending time with your family. Outside activities, inside activities, just sharing the season. Toys a little bit too, but it’s just the time spent together to go skating or skiing, if that’s your thing. Playing, just playing and spending time together. Q: What’s your favourite food? A: Santa gets his share of treats, you can tell. The seasonal food. We do turkey twice a year, and this is one of the big festive seasons for that. But the sugar cookies, the oranges. There was one little kid the other day, she was four or five years old, very serious, and she said “Santa I’m leaving you a beer because you’ve probably had enough milk by the time you get to my house.” Obviously Daddy had put her up to that one. Q: What’s your favourite part of flying around, delivering presents? Is that an exciting night for you? A: It is. It’s a full night, it’s a very busy night. Just seeing all the festive decorations and the different ways different countries celebrate it. You get the odd really sharp nine or 10-year-old, they say “Well how can you get all the way around the world?” … Santa has his ways. Q: What’s your favourite Christmas tradition? A: I like to watch hockey, kick back with the elves, get your feet up and rest. Q: Is Santa a Canucks fan? A: Oh yeah. Big fan.

While many are wishing joy to the world, a many others are struggling to simply get through the holiday season with their mental health intact. The season has a tendency to bring up sad memories, sparking depression and anxiety. Expectations to spend time with sometimes fractured families can also be stressful to many people. Financial worries also play their part. “It’s almost a cliche that Christmas is stressful,” said Ragnhild Flakstad, branch development manager for the Victoria branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association. But the truth is one in five Canadians experiences mental health issues at one point or another, Flakstad said, meaning odds are someone sitting around your dinner table is struggling to some degree with the season. The CMHA is offering a list of “A gift a person can tips to help people give to a person with get through the holiday season. mental illness is time. They recommend steps such as plan- Time and compassion ning ahead, staying and empathy.” within a budget, – Ragnhild Flakstad learning stressbusting skills to approach the season with as much peace-of-mind as possible. Flakstad wants to remind people, however, those with mental health issues are often not in a place, emotionally or mentally, where they are capable of carrying out these tips. “An individual with mental illness often isn’t able to plan ahead. That’s the nature of the condition,” she said. Something everyone should be thinking about is helping others and trying to make the holidays comfortable for all. Family members, friends and neighbours can all help those having a hard time with the season in simple ways, either by helping them with planning tips or just spending time with them. “People like that, they do need sometimes to look to their community and friends for that kind of support,” Flakstad said. “A gift a person can give to a person with mental illness is time. Time and compassion and empathy.” Many with mental health issues say the stigma they feel from others can be worse than the condition itself, Flakstad said. She asks people to be aware of this and when they see someone perhaps struggling with Christmas events or not conforming to the norms of the season, to treat them with respect and understanding and to help them feel included. “It’s not a time to blame. It’s a time to acknowledge and respect,” she said. “Mental illness, you can’t just turn it on and off.” There is information and advice available online for those struggling with the holiday season. CMHA recommends Living Life to the Full, found at llttf.com. CMHA’s Bounce Back program is also recommended for adults with depression. It is free but does require referral from a doctor. For more information visit cmha.bc.ca. Here to Help, at heretohelp.bc.ca, offers free screening self-tests and options for treatments. CMHA can also be reached toll-free at 1-800-5558222. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

hen a person thinks of the term paradox, thoughts of contradictions and unusual truths come to mind. The current University of Victoria fine arts faculty exhibit at the Legacy Art Gallery downtown, Paradox, is a varied collection of pieces that appear at first to be one thing but offer something more upon deeper examination. The show’s curator, Mary Jo Hughes, offers up Daniel Laskarin’s sculpture, “blue chair :: if this”, as an example. “His work is very sensual. It makes you want to touch it, but at the same time it’s rather treacherous, with shards of Fibreglass sticking out,” Hughes says. Next to it, Laskarin’s things come apart – a square metal bar ripped apart with shotgun blasts but painted with a brilliant red finish offers another conflict in emotion, she adds. “Each of the pieces do have some kind of inherent paradox in them.” Jennifer Stilwell’s unique installation across the room features a group of room fans in series – only one unit is running but all the blades move – facing a collection of raised wooden planks, painted blue at each end to represent lake water. It tells a personal story and relates to a time when she was working in her studio in sweltering heat, but longing to be at her parent’s lakefront cottage, Hughes says. The exhibit, running since Oct. 31, features recent works and represents the first time since the 1970s that UVic’s visual arts faculty has shown together. Hughes says she was a little nervous putting together an exhibit with so many different unrelated styles. At the same time, as she walks around the gallery, she finds subtle connections between the pieces, each of which presents its own kind of humorous irony. Public reaction to the exhibit has – like the art itself – been varied, she says. “We had a man walk in this morning. He was in about three minutes then left and said ‘okee dokee, then.’ But for every one of those guys, we have two other people who come in and say ‘it’s so nice there’s some challenging art in here.’” Many forms of visual art were initially considered “challenging” by the establishment, Hughes says, from Monet to Van Gogh, yet much of it has come to be known as mainstream and well accepted. “The main point of art is to help people look at the world a different way,” she says. The Legacy Gallery is currently closed for the holidays and reopens Jan. 2. Paradox runs to Jan. 11. Opening hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.

charla@goldstreamgazette The Metchosin Arts and cultural centre Association is still seeking proposals for future use of the Metchosin Art Gallery. The five board members extended the deadline for proposals to Jan. 15. The members have yet to receive a proposal, but individually they have heard inquires, said Gaert Linnaea, MAccA president. MAccA ran the gallery until it closed Dec. 1 and is actively seeking a new direction for the gallery. They hope to find another group to operate the community art gallery. “We will need a solid business plan to organize this,” Linnaea said. “We are looking for proposals that are a viable business as long as it’s not at the cost of the tax payer.” MAccA hosted a meeting with artists, members of the association and the public to discuss potential options in October. More than 40 people attended and discussed the options of using the space add an artist co-operative and the possibility of fundraising to keep the gallery open. MAccA is asking for interested parties to submit proposals for future use of the gallery site to Linnaea at linnaea1@telus.net or call 250-381-5752.

As the only collegiate tourney between Christmas and New Year’s Day it fits a niche. The Humber Hawks (Toronto) were first to sign up for the tournament with Langara.

SPORTS NEWS IN BRIEF Vic players named to national U20 soccer camp

Greater Victoria products Emma Fletcher and Katie Kraeutner attended the Canadian Soccer Association women’s under-20 training camp in Burnaby from Dec. 11 to 21. Fletcher, a midfielder, accumulated 12 assists this fall to set a Louisiana Tigers freshman record. A graduate of the former Gordon Head Soccer Association, Fletcher was named to TopDrawerSoccer.com’s best XV among freshman NCAA Div. 1 players. As a New Zealander originally, Fletcher played for New Zealand in the under-17 FIFA World Cup in 2012. Kraeutner, a forward, is a Parkland secondary grad from North Saanich who plays Div. 1 with the Nebraska Huskers.

Christmas contract for Keegan Kanzig

This could be the last Western Hockey League season for 18-year-old Victoria Royals defenceman Keegan Kanzig. Calgary Flames president and interim general manager Brian Burke, a known lover of truculence, signed Kanzig on Dec. 19 to a standard threeyear NHL entry level deal. Kanzig impressed with his size, 6-foot-5, 242 lbs., and physicality, at the Flames prospect and main camps this season. He’ll have a crack at making the Flames permanently in September. If not, he can return to the Royals for another year. “It’s a huge honour to sign with such a great organization,” Kanzig said. “It’s one step closer to my goal of playing for the Flames and it gives me even more motivation to continue to work hard.” The Flames selected Kanzig, a Fort Saskatchewan native by way of Lake Athabasca, in the third round, 67th overall, in the 2013 NHL Draft. In 30 games he leads the team with a plus-17 rating while his 57 penalty minutes are largely related to his penchant for truculence and fighting.

Cougars stuff Braves’ stocking with goals

The Victoria Cougars blitzed the Saanich Braves 10-1 on Thursday (Dec. 19), a dashing statement by the flying leaders of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League. Perhaps it was premeditated revenge on the Braves (10-19-2) after its shutout win over the Cougars (26-5-2) six days prior. David Marshall, Marino Somerville and Nyshan Basra each scored twice for the Cougars and Wade Johnson, Jordan Davie and Michael Fretz also scored one each. It was the league-leading 18th win for Cougars goalie Connor Beauchamp. Josh Poland scored for the Braves. The Cougars re-start in January. The Braves visit the Peninsula Panthers on Dec. 27, 7:30 p.m. at Panorama Rec Centre.

OIL FACT

Cold temperatures affect the motor oil’s ability to quickly start flowing through your engine. Switching to a full synthetic oil in the winter months provides you with the following benefit: • Better oil flow in cold temperatures • Quicker oil flow at cold start -up • Better resistance to breakdown in high temperatures • Tough oil film strength for severe conditions • Improved engine efficiency and fuel economy at low temperatures.
