THE ESTEVAN MERCURY WOULD LIKE TO WISH YOU A

MERRY Welcome to the 2018 Christmas Greetings edition We’re celebrating Christmas memories The Estevan Mercury Publications family is once again proud to send out a hearty Merry Christmas to all of our readers. Our Christmas greetings publication is our opportunity to connect with you during this special time of year. We like to think of this publication as our Christmas card to you each year. This year we are celebrating Christmas memories, and since Christmas is a time for people of all ages to celebrate the spirit of giving and togetherness, we have collected Christmas greetings from people of all ages. You’ll read about the favourite memories from Michelle Hanna’s Grade 4 class at Spruce Ridge School. You’ll also read about the cherished memories from members of Estevan’s favourite team, the Power Dodge Estevan Bruins. You’ll find the memories from participants at Estevan Diversified Services, who certainly look forward to Christmas each year. Finally, you’ll see some great stories from the residents of two of Estevan’s senior citizens’ homes: Creighton Lodge and Hill View Manor. While these people have diverse backgrounds

We hope that you’ll enjoy reading these Christmas memories, and that they will evoke some vivid memories of your own from Christmases past.

Creighton Lodge enjoys sharing stories The residents of Creighton Lodge enjoyed sharing stories through this year’s Estevan Mercury Publications Christmas special. Shelly Veroba, who manages the lodge alongside Judy Pratt, said a lot of the residents were happy to reflect about their past Christmases, or to share their recipes. Some of them were shy to have their picture taken, but many were excited with the opportunity to be part of this publication. Many of the residents described how they used to have their stockings hung with an orange, some peanuts and some little candies inside. Veroba pointed out that’s how her mother used to fill a stocking, even in the 1970s and 1980s. “Nowadays stockings have come a lot further, and are more expensive to stock,” said Veroba. Other residents at the lodge sat back and thought about how Christmas used to be special

because they would get things that were special to them, such as the candies and oranges. But now they don’t feel Christmas has such the same wonderful feel to it. Veroba pointed out that Norma Blackburn was among the volunteers who helped to compile the stories. Residents of Creighton Lodge love to reminisce and tell stories, not just about Christmas the way it used to be, but about the past. The lodge has had people come in to help the residents share their tales of the past, while others have come to the lodge to read a book and reminisce of days gone by. “The stories are there, and I think that’s one of the greatest things about Christmas is just sitting back with everybody and remembering the memories of families and friends and past Christmases,” said Veroba.

We usually cooked a goose for Christmas. Mom would make kloesse, they were balls of potatoes and mom would stuff them with bread crumbs. They were cooked in boiling water. We only had Kloesse at Christmas time. They were delicious. I had 10 siblings, so it was a full table. My dad was a carpenter. He would sometimes carve us gifts out of wood. Our gifts were always homemade. Dad would haul water and make us a skating area. We had bob skates. They strapped unto our boots. We had lots of fun.

My favorite Christmas memory was Christmas of 1994. I had just started dating this young man eld. He had a sense of humour that matched mine and a heart of gold. He had 2 small rst time that Christmas eve. We spent the evening at his parents home and I was surrounded with the excitement of a big family Christmas. On Christmas morning we opened gifts and then said goodbye to his children as they went home with their mom. We spent the rest of the day ice skating at the Rusty Duce Park, playing board games with friends and eating delicious holiday treats. That was 24 years ago... I married that man in 1997 and our son was born in 1999... Christmas of 2018 will be celebrated with our adult children, grandchildren, friends and our extended families because that's what Christmas is all about....

All my Christmases were special, being together with Frank and our 7 children. Most of the time I cooked the turkey. I always made cabbage rolls and cucumber salad. We had a small house so it would get very crowded and noisy. We would open gifts and visit. It was always a good time.

We were poor growing up. I had 7 siblings. We never got a lot for Christmas. We would be happy with a coloring book. We would use a box to make a sleigh and slide down the hill. Mom always cooked a chicken for Christmas because we raised chickens. Now a days kids have so much, but I am not sure their Christmases are any better than ours.

I received my first Christmas gift when I was 7 years old, it was a toothbrush, toothpaste and a cup. I treasured that gift. When I was 3 my mom went to Fort San, she had tuberculosis and she was gone for 3 years. I never even knew my mom when she came home. I remember when I was 12 I wanted a violin, probably because we had a neighbor who played one. There was one in the Eaton’s catalogue for $13.99. I was the youngest in my family. I had 3 brothers and 4 sisters. We were poor growing up. The toothbrush is the only gift I remember getting as a boy, there was never enough money for a tree or gifts.

I grew up in South Central Manitoba. We would travel 16 kilometers via a horse drawn sleigh to visit my grandparents. There would be lots of family, we always had a turkey dinner with all the trimmings. We would receive small and practical gifts. We did not hang stockings. Santa put gifts inside of bowls. We would get an orange or an apple and maybe socks or mittens. Sometimes we might receive a small toy. The snow was plentiful, snow banks were often as high as the trees, but we never missed a Christmas with our grandparents. My family and my sibling’s families still get together at Christmas. We have a good meal, sing songs and share memories.

All my Christmases have been good, not elaborate but good times spent with family. I always made Christmas pudding and fruit cake. We were poor growing up, but everyone was poor. The Christmas program at the church and at the school were the highlights. My siblings; there were 10 of us, each received one gift. We lived in a 4 room house, there was not enough room to have guests over for Christmas dinner. We were happy. I have very good Christmas memories.

WE WIS WISH H YOU YOU A

Best Wishes at Christmastime A blanket of snow covers the ground, the feeling of Christmas is all around. At every moment and in every way, we hope it’s a wonderful holiday.

My husband Wes had just passed away, he was 63 when we lost him to cancer. My two sons and my daughter surprised me by showing up for Christmas. I had been feeling sad, but it was so nice to have them home for Christmas.

Christmas Eve Kris Kringle would come to our house. He had a beard and wore a hat. He would open the door and deliver oranges, candy and nuts. He would slide the treats in on the floor. My seven siblings and I could keep whatever we were able to pick up. Some of us were scared of Kris and would run and hide. We always had a turkey dinner with all the trimmings and would each receive a practical gift.

I Am Ukrainian, We Always Had A Feast At Christmas. Mom would cook us 13 different dishes, plus a turkey. It was a tradition to bring a sheaf of wheat into the house with straw. This symbolized where Jesus was born. I had a very close knit family. We were never hungry. After supper we went to mass and then were allowed to open one gift. We hung stockings and I had 2 brothers. When I was 17, I had a sister. She was the best Christmas gift. This will be a sad Christmas for me as my husband Mel passed away in August. I miss Mel very much.

Christmas is so different today. Everyone wants so much. When I was growing up we received a bag with an orange and a few candies after the church concert. My grandkids can’t believe it, but we were happy with that. My kids ask me what I would like for Christmas, I tell them I don’t need anything. I have a warm place to stay and good food to eat. I have everything I need. The problem with the world today is that everyone wants too much.

Students love to tell stories, too The Grade 4 class students at Spruce Ridge School were very excited to share their Christmas memories for the Estevan Mercury Publication’s Christmas memories project. Teacher Michelle Hanna said Christmas is such a special time to children everywhere. Grandmas, grandpas, cousins, aunts and uncles played a huge roll in the students’ stories. The appearance of Santa at their homes was a memory that had eyes twinkling. Memories of family get-togethers, eating, visiting and playing games were recalled. Giggles were shared. Every child had a special recollection that they were more than willing to reveal. These are memories that will stick with the children forever. Hearing their individual stories definitely puts you in a Christmas mood. “I love that several of the children’s memories involve them giving not just getting,” said Hanna. “Christmas through children’s eyes is heartwarming. Their delight and enthusiasm is contagious.”

Alyssa Marcotte It was just last year when I was at my grandma and grandpa’s house. It was Christmas day and my Elf on the Shelf was going and I cried. It’s my favourite because I just love Elves on the Shelves.

Breanna Short My favourite Christmas is when we go sledding, because it’s so much fun. Last year I got GTs and that was a lot of fun. I was really excited, I got them from my grandma and I really wanted it.

Colten Short My favourite Christmas memory is probably when we went to Melville with my grandpa and grandma, and my uncle and auntie. And my mom did little games, like obstacle courses. I never won all of them. I only won three. There were 10.

My favourite Christmas memory is giving my mom a bracelet. It was orangishpurplish. It’s my favourite because it was mindful, kind. And mom was really surprised.

My favourite Christmas memory is when I spilled chocolate on my presents. I didn’t ruin my presents because it was on the wrapper. It was very funny, everybody was laughing.

My favourite Christmas memory is when I open presents on the Christmas day at my house. There was a scooter. I was excited to get it, I was excited to ride it, but I couldn’t ride it in the house. I had to wait till spring to get to the skate park.

On Christmas eve one year me, my brother and my dad went out on the lake and we were riding our four wheelers on the ice, and then we were skating, playing a little bit of hockey. I play hockey, so I really like skating.

Kaleb Gary My favourite Christmas memory is one year before my auntie passed away, I was with her, and we were talking about jokes. I told her jokes and we were laughing.

Last Christmas my mom and I, and my sister got a dog from the Humane Society without my dad knowing. We went to the grocery store and bought a bunch of candies that he likes and bribed him when he came home. And we still got it. Dad wasn’t happy and then he was happy.

Last year I had my favourite Christmas memory. That memory was in India. We played games, we had sweets, we had chocolates. If we win in a game, we get awards. I got an award playing musical chairs. Me and my friend we were last, and then I sat and she left, so I won. We played many games there. It was great.

Hailey Van De Woestyne

Halen Lesy My favourite Christmas memory is when I got my Playstation. PS 4 Pro. It was my favourite because I really wanted it and I like to play games. My mom and dad bought it for me. I was happy when I got it

My favourite Christmas is when we all went to my grandpa’s and we had a big supper. It was my first time going to my grandpa’s for that. We had turkey and ham and stuff like that. I felt surprised and nervous, because it was my first time, but it turned out really good.

Here’s hoping your holiday season delivers a full spectrum of peace, love, joy and contentment.

From my family to yours, wishing you joy, peace and hope this holiday season and throughout the New Year!

Dr. Robert Kitchen

The only Christmas memory that’s my favourite that I remember is every year on Christmas eve I go to my grandma’s house. We go to church. After church we get presents. We set up the cookies, then we go to bed and in the morning Santa comes. We open up our presents actually first. After that on the 26th my mom’s side of the family comes over and we blow off the big matt. And I remember one time I spit my pancakes on the mat.

Morgan Hirsch

Marin Burnett My favourite Christmas memory is when I was younger. We were at my grandma’s house and I put a candy in everybody’s stocking and everyone was joking around about it.

My favourite Christmas memory is when my family thought that they saw Santa and the reindeers, and all of us were joking around and everything. I like this one most of all because my dad’s like “Oh, look there is the Big Nose.” And I’m like “Dad, his name is Rudolph.” He was just joking around.

My favourite Christmas memory is when I gave my parents a present. It was an “I love you” note in a box. I did it myself and I felt really good when I gave it to them.

In warm appreciation we wish you a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

I like sledding, sometimes I play something outside and I climb the bales. My brother and my sister do it with me, sometimes they want to do their own. Sometimes we go to my grandma’s. It’s my favourite place. She lives near Oxbow.

My favourite memory about Christmas is building ginormous snow forts that looked like they were giant monsters. We built them right next to our dog pan where we have a bunch of snow. My mom, my dad, my brother, and my sister all helped me out. We used a couple of bottle caps for eyeballs and used food colouring for some details.

On Christmas Eve we went out onto the ice hockey rink in Madge Lake, Saskatchewan. There were both sides of our family and we played hockey. It’s my favourite because we had mostly all of our family out there. It was a good time.

Rachel Ridgway

Ryden Ellis

My favourite Christmas memory is when my cousins and I were at their house. When we woke up there were footprints on the floor and then we looked in our stockings and opened all our presents and then we woke up our parents.

My favourite Christmas memory is when I get together with my family and we get to open presents together. It’s my favourite because I get to get together with them and help them do what they want to do.

What I like best about Christmas is putting up the tree, getting presents and eating a Christmas dinner. I like turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and stuffing... and pumpkin pie!

I liked it when my family came to visit on Christmas Day - it was chaos!!! My favourite Christmas food is Christmas cake.

I remember the time when Papa Tony was around for Christmas. He’s been passed away for a while now, but he is still here in my heart! He’s my Grandpa and I liked the fact that he always wore suspenders! Every time he saw me, he would say “Hello Katie” and he was funny, too. I remember he always liked to play a game of cards. I keep his spirit alive by looking at my picture books. I love you Grandpa, I’m happy you have your angel wings!

Hanna Keating

My favourite memory of Christmas is singing Danish Christmas carols, while holding hands walking around our beautiful live tree, that was lit with real white and red candles!

Shane Himmelspach

My favourite memory of Christmas is the tree - buying a live tree and putting on the lights and decorations and then the presents under the tree. My best present was a computer.

Wendell Baniulis

My favourite memory was going to church at night, I really liked that, then we had to go to bed and wait for Santa Claus to come. When I was 5 or 6, I got the best present - a train set! I remember Christmas oranges and candy canes in my stocking.

Hill View M anor loves C hris tmas

Mary Louise Real

On Christmas morning our whole family would take the old sleigh pulled by horses over to my husband’s parents’ home which was 3 1/2 miles away. We put our kitchen chairs in the sleigh so that we all had something to sit on. Everyone loved Grandma Real’s homemade butter tarts and wonderful turkey meal. After our meal we would open the gifts. We never got toys but were excited to get a new shirt or piece of clothing. We would have a wonderful day visiting and playing games. The children played board games like Monopoly and the adults played card games. Those who had skates would go ice skating on the dugout. We had only one pair of skates to share among all eight of us so we would take turns and hope the skates fit. We also each got a small bag with an orange, some candy and peanuts in it. We were thrilled. We had a wonderful day and then would get in our sleigh with the kitchen chairs and head home. It was a great day. Everyone was happy.

I am one of eleven children, so our house was always a full happy place to be. Grandma lived with us as well. At our house we always had plenty to eat and clothes to wear. Mom kept busy sewing for us and both parents were good providers.

On Christmas Eve we hung our stockings in the hope that Santa would visit our home. Morning did not come soon enough as we rose early to look in our stockings. Usually we found nuts, candy and a Christmas orange. We were so excited.

Later in the morning we all went to church as a family. As we got older, we took part in the Christmas program. It was always in German. We rode in a horse-drawn sleigh to church. Luckily we did not have far to go. Our extended family was large and occasionally relatives would join our family to celebrate Christmas. The older kids would help mother prepare the meals which was usually turkey or chicken with all the extras, too. Father bought apples by the case so mother would prepare her delicious apple pies for dessert. By evening everyone was very tired but very happy.

Margaret Wingert

Rose Zander

My favourite Christmas memories are of Christmas Eve when our family would all open our gifts under the tree. They usually consisted of a game, a Christmas orange and homemade candy. The orange and the candy were such a wonderful treat. We had a play time and then we were spirited off to bed because Christmas morning came very early. We all rose early and were so excited. Our dad would do the chores, then mother and myself and the other children would get ready. Dad would get the team and we would go to uncle’s which was about 15 miles southwest. Hot stones at our feet kept us warm. We would spend the day celebrating with a large crowd. Seven of us and nine of uncle’s family. Their house was only two rooms on the main floor. A bedroom and a kitchen. The bed was dismantled and a table set up so we could all sit together for the Christmas meal. It was always fun. Two of the cousins were my age and we would go upstairs to their bedroom and play there and leave the others downstairs. Supper was served early and we would drive home in the dark, tired but happy.

This is a great Christmas memory. Audrey Sovdi

Season’s Greetings from Our Staff to Your Home

As a tradition in my family, I did the Christmas meal and my daughter Brenda hosted New Year’s and my mom did our Easter meal.

Our Christmas tree was always put up in early December, simply because I did not like decorating and I wanted it done. I wrote all my Christmas letters before the end of November, otherwise I would not have had time to do them because of all the cookies and baking that comes with the season to be done. It was always nice to have my daughter help me with the Christmas meal and she loved to help.

Guests included all our children and their families and of course mom and dad completed the gathering. Mom always brought the cabbage rolls.

YULETIDE GREETINGS

I came from a family of 14 children. I had six sisters and seven brothers and I was the youngest girl. We did not have a lot of money. Dad was a farmer and times were hard so there was not a lot of extras even at Christmas time. We all looked forward to Christmas day because even without gifts we had each other. On Christmas the older kids that had left home tried to get home to spend time with the rest of us. Even though it was Christmas we had to do our chores. We had around 10 cows and each of us kids had a certain cow that we had to milk. We always had fun squirting the cats and the cats loved the treat of the milk. After the chores we would help our mom prepare the turkey and all the trimmings. We always had a large garden and mom did a lot of canning so we had nice vegetables with our meal. After a delicious meal we had apple or cherry pie and homemade ice cream. It was a very special treat to have canned cherry pie filling. When the meal was put away and the dishes were done, we all sat in front of the fireplace as the Christmas story was read. The excitement rose as we got to open a gift, not necessarily wrapped in Christmas wrap but perhaps newspaper, but it was wrapped and a surprise. We were always happy and grateful for the pen or scribbler or book that was hidden inside. We had a very large dining room, which we needed with so many kids, and we moved things around, and as dad played the accordion us kids all danced. After that we often had a treat of a Christmas orange or some of mom’s homemade Christmas cake. We were all happy at the end of the day. Now that I am at Hill View Manor I am also very happy that I will get to enjoy a beautiful Christmas meal and I don’t have to milk the cows before I get to eat it.

Sending best wishes your way this Christmas. Thank you for visiting us this year.

Our extra bedroom was taken by our son and the rumpus room served as a bedroom �illed with grandkids. We all attended midnight mass together as a family and looked forward to seeing each other again for supper. Following our Christmas supper we would all gather to open our gifts.

An evening of enjoying our Christmas punch, conversation and laughter �inished our Christmas day. Boxing Day was a great time to eat all the leftovers, relax and enjoy the company of family.

On Christmas Eve we opened our gifts. Everyone was so excited. A gift was usually containing new clothes, some store bought and some homemade. My mom used to sew a lot after we went to bed. Later in the evening mom and dad would go to midnight mass. Those of us that stayed home were responsible to tidy up the house and lay out clothes for everyone. We also needed to make sure that the coal pail was filled. On Christmas day we couldn’t wait to taste all of the food mom prepared. There was chicken, rice dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, ham, cabbage rolls and homemade buns. A dessert of strusekuchen would follow.

We were very poor so we never received any Christmas presents. My brother and I would go to the fields and gather rocks and try to match them up in pairs. We named them after our horses and that is what we played with. We had big family gatherings with grandma and grandpa in Frobisher. Three families would gather for the Christmas meal. After the meal we would all go ice skating. Big fun was had by all. This is a good memory for me of Christmas.

One Christmas we went to Ma and Pa Turner’s. There were nine of us children and the highlight of our Christmas was when our uncle would wrap 50-cent pieces and hang them on the tree for each of us.

I was one of 12 children. Christmas was a very special time for us.

We went to midnight mass as a family. Sometimes the little ones fell asleep and would have to be carried home.

Christmas day was one of celebrating, eating and gift opening. A favourite gift I once received was a doll with a porcelain face and eyes that opened and closed and she said “Mama.” Talk about an excited little girl. My mom had made clothes for her as well. Our Christmas meal consisted of chicken, stuf�ing and cranberries and the whole works. Desserts were usually Christmas cake and pies. Mother was a wonderful cook and everything was delicious.

Theresa Dukart

I can visualize the tree in my mind now with the coins hanging on the branches wrapped in gold and silver foil. As a child we thought he must be very rich.

A special gift one year was when my sister and I received an Eaton's Beauty Doll. She was just precious with a porcelain face, blinking eye sand beautiful hair. There was always food, food and more food at our Christmases. Duck, turkey, ham, pie and pudding. The table was weighed down beneath the bounty of delicious Christmas food. We never went hungry at Maand Pa Turner’s.

Christmas was a quiet family gathering of Dad, Mom, myself and my younger sister Mavis. Mom did all the cooking of our traditional turkey dinner, but we all did our part in eating it. Our stockings were always filled with candy and oranges. Christmas gifts were opened first thing Christmas morning so we had all day to enjoy them. We always looked forward to opening our gifts from our aunts in England as they were often books or a unique toy.

My son's �irst Christmas was the beginning of many very memorable and enjoyable Christmases. He was only nine months old, but received more gifts than you can imagine.

Many of our Christmases were enjoyed travelling to several family members by car. But if the roads weren't open we took the cutter drawn by our two horses, adorned with their bells, which made for a wonderful jingle bell Christmas. Nothing was going to stop us. Everyone took turns hosting Christmas. It was always very good, but we especially enjoyed the Christmas pudding. We always started our day with opening our gifts before going to church. Supper was early, at 1 p.m., giving us all the afternoon to cherish our time visiting with family as the children played board games. These are my wonderful memories of Christmas.

Estevan Bruins look forward to Christmas Regardless of where they’re from, members of the Power Dodge Estevan Bruins look forward to Christmas each year. The Bruins gladly participated in this year’s Estevan Mercury Publications Christmas memories initiative. They reflected on their favourite memories, which often involved visiting with family members and spending time skating on an outdoor rink, whether it be a slough, a pond, a street or an actual outdoor rink. Danny Ewen, who is the club’s director of marketing and operations, said the players were excited to participate. “All I had to do was give them the heads up that we were looking for some Christmas memories, and all of them seemed pretty eager to write a few things down,” said Ewen. “You can

My favourite Christmas memory is when my sister woke me up at 6am on Christmas morning. Then the both of us proceeded to go wake my brother up who would always throw a fit, so we would have to be pretty creative on how we waked him.

tell they’re pretty excited for Christmas once again.” The players are between ages 17 and 20, so it’s understandable they would still have that anticipation level for Christmas. Many of the memories were humourous, while others were touching. “Their personalities shone through once again. They’re pretty awesome guys on our team,” said Ewen. The opportunity to gather up Christmas memories from the players also inspired Ewen to think of his own favourite memories, and he even submitted one of his own for the special. “My mom’s side of the family is Norwegian, so they always make lefsa at Christmas, so that’s the food that always makes me think of Christmas time.”

Our family tradition is always to open gifts in the morning at our house then go to Moose Jaw to my Grandma’s and take the whole family skating at the oval there on Christmas Day.

On Christmas morning, my brother and I wake up super early to open gifts. The rest of the day consists of relaxing and enjoying our presents. One thing I love about the holidays is spending time with my family.
