SANTA

CLAUS PARADE W

e might have to wait until Dec. 24 for Old Saint Nick to visit us in our homes, but we can get an early peek at the big man himself during the annual Santa Claus Parade that will be rolling through downtown Kamloops on Nov. 24. It’s a family favorite event, sure to fill the sidewalks along Victoria street with fans both young and old. And it’s sure to be busy, so you’re going to want to stake out your sidewalk space early. This year marks the 38th anniversary of the parade, and the 2018 theme is Retro Rockin’ Christmas. Just like past year’s, you’ll be sure to find live music, dancers, and maybe even a theatre troupe alongside the traditional holiday floats. The day’s events begin at 10:30 am with the waking of Santa at Kamloops Square. A half hour later, at 11:00 am, the parade begins at Second Avenue and St. Paul street It will

travel down Second Avenue to Victoria street, where it will turn right and continue on Victoria street. until reaching Sixth Avenue. It will then turn left into Lansdowne Village. Please note that there are no spectators allowed in the 600 block of Victoria street. With the parade complete, Santa’s workshop will open at noon in Lansdowne Village. Games, refreshments, and photos with Santa will be available until 3:00 pm. Downtown Kamloops encourages parade spectators to take public transit or carpool to the event, but if you must drive, downtown parkades (located on Seymour and Lansdowne Streets) are free of charge on weekends.

Laughing Stock Theatre

RAPUNZEL A TANGLED PANTO

T

he Laughing Stock Theatre Society’s annual pantomime theatre production has quickly become a Christmas tradition in Kamloops. And this year’s show is sure to delight audiences as much as previous years’ productions. Past productions have included such recognizable titles as Cinderella, Aladdin, Snow White, Beauty & The Beast, Treasure Island, and most recently, The Little Mermaid.

BOARD

This year’s show tells the story of Rapunzel, a young woman eager to explore the world who has been kept secluded in tower by Mother Gothel, who has made her promise to never leave her home and never cut her hair. But after years locked away, Rapunzel finally gather up the nerve to escape the tower while Mother

Gothel is away running errands, in the hopes of the getting a closer look at the floating lights that appear every year on her birthday. Rapunzel was written by Dave Marklinger and directed by Vance Schneider, both of Kamloops, and will put the usual panto-spin on this very well know fairy tale.

ELF Western Canada Theatre

THE MUSICAL

O

ne of the winter holidays’ most cherished movies has been adapted as a stage musical, and Western Canada Theatre will be bringing it to life. It’s Elf – The Musical, and it will be hitting the stage from Nov. 29 to Dec. 12 at the Sagebrush Theatre. The original film, which stars Will Farrell, has become something of a Christmas classic since its release in

2003. The musical adaptation first appeared on Broadway in the Christmas season of 2010-11. It tells the story of Buddy, an orphan baby who was mistakenly brought to the North Pole, where he grows up unaware that he is a human. When his enormous size and inability to properly craft holiday toys reveals the truth about him, Buddy returns to New York City in

search of his birth father. And along the way, he’s sure to teach at least a few people about the Christmas spirit. There are over two-dozen performers involved in Elf – The Musical, including 12 young Kamloops musical actors. Western Canada Theatre cautions that while Elf – The Musical is suitable for all ages, it may be best enjoyed by those seven and older.

Holiday train

LIGHTS UP FOR CANADIAN

FOOD BANKS

I

t’s been almost 20 years since CP Holiday Train took its first trip, and it’s going stronger than ever. Over those years, the train has raised more that $14.5 million and 4.3 million pounds of food for North American food banks. Best of all, everything raised in a particular community stays in that community, and helps the people in that community. Along with the great fundraising work that the Holiday Train is responsible for, it’s also a site to behold. The entire train is about 1,000 feet in length with 14

brightly decorated train cars. They’re decorated with hundreds of thousands of technology-leading LED lights sporting fantastic holiday-inspired designs. So what’s the Holiday Train event all about? Here in Kamloops the train will pull up to a stop just outside the Sandman Center on Lorne St. at about 4:30 pm on Dec. 16. At 5:00 pm the stage door lowers and the bad on board the train will start to play. Following that first song, there will be a brief presentation with local food bank officials and dignitaries, and after the

presentation the band will fire up again, playing a mix of traditional and modern Christmas songs. All told the event will last for about 30 minutes before the band plays its final song, the stage door closes, and the Holiday Train heads off to its next destination. Food donations are of course welcome and encouraged at the event. You’re welcome to bring either a food item or a cash donation. If you’re wondering what to bring, you can always contact the Kamloops Food Bank at 250-376-2252 to find out what’s on their wish list.

WINTER

IDEAS W

inter entertaining need not end once Christmas and New Year’s Day have come and gone. Getting together with friends and family is still possible even if the weather outside is frightful. Winter days and nights are ripe for entertaining possibilities when Mother Nature takes a chilly turn. These events help squash the cabin fever that can sometimes develop during the colder times of year. INDULGE IN SWEET TREATS Comfort foods can make even the most blustery winds easier to tolerate. Invite people over for a dessert party. At a dessert pot luck party, everyone brings along a favorite decadent dessert, from molten lava chocolate cake to warm bread pudding. Serve alongside tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Adults can enjoy the added punch of spiked beverages, which can warm everyone up instantly.

10 Traditional Kamloops Christmas 2018

HOST A “SNOWED IN” PARTY Spending a day cooped up inside when the roads are covered in snow might not be your idea of fun, but invite a mix of friends and neighbors who live nearby over, and this impromptu party can make the cabin fever disappear. Ask guests to bring one food item or beverage. Light a fire in the fireplace and set out some cozy throw blankets. If possible, invite everyone outdoors to build a snowman. GET PHYSICAL Get physically active with friends or family members by staging mock Olympic events in the yard. These can be fun “sports” created by participants or variations on fun winter activities. Sledding races, snowball dodging contests, ice skating obstacle courses, and much more can make for an entertaining afternoon.

GET COOKING Cooking can certainly pass the time, and it can be even more enjoyable when done in the company of others. Send out an invitation for friends to stop by for a meal or plan a meal prep party. HOST A MOVIE MARATHON Handpick some favorite films and invite everyone over for a movie marathon. Fill the family room, home theater room or living room to capacity and host a group for a film fest. If space permits, set up one room with a children’s movie for youngsters, while the adults retire to another room for movies that are more their speed. A buffet table set up with assorted snacks will help keep bellies full while guests watch some favorite flicks.

Cutting back on

HOLIDAY

WASTE

T

he holiday season is a time for families to gather and express their love and appreciation for one another. Exchanging gifts has become a big part of the holiday season, and while such a tradition is well-intentioned, gift-giving annually produces substantial amounts of waste. Food plays a big role at many holiday celebrations, and uneaten food contributes heavily to the excess waste during the holiday season. Time magazine reports that an estimated 1.3 billion tons of food, or about one-third of global production, is lost or wasted each year. Food is not the only thing wasted during the holiday season. Everything from packaging to gift wrap to the number of gifts purchased can contribute to excess holiday waste. As big a problem as holiday waste has become, there are several simple ways to reducing holiday waste. MAKE A LIST AND STICK TO IT Retailers are very good at upselling and getting people to purchase items they do not need during the holiday season. Stick to a shopping list for food or other supplies for the holiday season and beyond. Do not be tempted to buy more than is necessary.

12 Traditional Kamloops Christmas 2018

SCALE BACK THE MENU If you typically have lots of leftovers after the holiday, you’re likely overestimating just how much people will eat. Learn from past experience and cook less this year. If you have a lot of leftovers, send guests home with their own plates instead of letting them pile up in the refrigerator and spoiling. And keep in mind that leftover food can always be donated to nearby food banks and homeless shelters. REUSE WHATEVER YOU CAN Diligently collect and store holiday wrappings and trimmings that are in good condition and put them to use again and again. Gift bags and boxes are easily reused. Once materials have passed their prime, attempt to repurpose and recycle them before discarding them. GIVE AN EXPERIENCE RATHER THAN “STUFF” When gifting, think about giving experiences rather than traditional gifts. Experiences may include trips to a museum or tickets to a concert or a play. Such gifts will make for memorable experiences and, because experiences are not packaged, will help cut back on holiday waste.

MAKE YOUR OWN WRAPPING When wrapping gifts, use comics, maps, old calendars, and items that you would otherwise discard. You even can decorate newsprint with rubber stamps or drawings from the children. PURCHASE A ROOTED TREE. Look for a tree that has the root intact so it can be planted afterward. COMPOST FOOD SCRAPS Eggshells, coffee grounds and vegetable peels can be put to use in the garden when composted. DECORATE WITH ITEMS FROM AROUND THE HOUSE. Costume jewelry and other trinkets can adorn the limbs of Christmas trees. Look throughout the house to see what you might have that can serve as replacements for heavily packaged, storebought decorations. Reducing waste during the holiday season can be accomplished without affecting the festive atmosphere synonymous with this time of year.

he B.C. Wildlife Park will soon be a brighter place to visit when they begin their 21st Annual Wildlights Festival. The festival begins on Dec. 14 and runs to Jan. 6, 2019, every day from 5 pm to 9 pm except Christmas Day, when it will be closed. The Wildlights Festival turns the B.C. Wildlife Park into a bright, colourful experience for the whole family, with light displays featuring animals, familiar cartoon characters, and more. In all, thousands of lights will be on display throughout the park, which is located just east of the city. Along with the lights will be a number of activities to enjoy including performances by Uncle Chris The Clown, a Snowflake Scavenger Hunt, Meet a Reptile, Winter Story Time, and a Holiday Maze. You can also take a trip on the Wildlife Express Miniature Train to really get a good look at the Wildlights displays. Be sure to plan for a visit sometime this winter, as the display will only be up for a short time, and it’s not something you’ll want to miss.

18 ideas for

MAKING HOLIDAY MEMORIES

C

ounting down to Christmas Day means many different things to people across the globe. Although families likely have several different traditions they anticipate each year, it can be fun to incorporate some new merrymakers into the festivities. Here are some festive ideas to include in the days leading up to Christmas — a special family calendar of fun finds.

1

ANNUAL MEMENTO Have the kids or adults make one new handmade ornament each year. This way the tree is always evolving, and everyone can track milestones.

5

2

6

COOKIE DAY Devote one day to making Christmas cookies. Invite friends or family members over. Distribute some cookies to elderly neighbors.

3

HOLIDAY CLASSIC Spend a night in and watch a classic Christmas flick you’ve never seen before. Streaming movie services often put classics and obscure titles into rotation during the holiday season.

4

CHRISTMAS CONCERT Host a gathering of children where they can sing or perform their favorite tunes for an audience. Take it on the road to a nearby nursing home.

DINE OUT Take a break from cooking, shopping and hosting and stop into a restaurant you’ve been meaning to try. Keep it local to support nearby businesses.

ADOPT A CHILD/FAMILY Volunteer with a charitable organization that provides for less fortunate families. Answer the Christmas desires of a needy child or family by purchasing an item on their wish lists.

9

PLAY DRESS-UP A gentleman can dress up as the man in red and pop into a friend’s holiday gathering.

14

10

15

WILDERNESS WALK Enjoy the crisp air and snow and see a local park from a winter perspective.

11

ACTS OF KINDNESS Choose any act of kindness and make it happen this Christmas. It can include feeding the hungry or helping a disabled person shop for the season.

READ RELIGIOUS STORIES Understand the true meaning of the season by reading Biblical passages. CAMP IN The first night the tree is decorated, allow the kids to sleep beside it under the glow of Christmas lights.

16

SCAVENGER HUNT Plan holiday-themed trivia questions and hide small trinkets for children to find.

7

12

17

8

13

18

SEE THE SIGHTS Pack the children into the family car to tour nearby areas and look at Christmas lights displays. Bring along cookies and hot chocolate.

TRIM A TREE Get together with adult friends at a tree-trimming party. Rotate the hosting house each year.

18 Traditional Kamloops Christmas 2018

KIDS’ SECRET SANTA Spread the joy of giving by having the kids choose a sibling or friend’s name from a hat and purchasing or making a gift for that person. HAND OUT HOT CHOCOLATE Make a big thermos of hot chocolate and give it out to shoppers or workers who have been out in the cold.

SURPRISE BOX Put a gender and age nonspecific gift into a box. On Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, the person who finds a hidden gift tag under their chair at dinner gets to open the box. FAMILY PORTRAIT Wear your holiday finery and pose for a portrait that actually will be printed and framed.

COOKING

FOR A

CROWD 4 tips to simplify

your holiday season

F

amilies big and small typically celebrate the holiday season together. For some, celebrating the holidays with family requires traveling, while others stay put and welcome family and friends into their homes. At some point during the holiday season, celebrants who host family and friends will no doubt prepare a homecooked meal for their loved ones. Cooking for a crowd can seem like a daunting task, especially for first-time hosts. However, there are various ways for hosts to simplify cooking for a crowd this holiday season.

20 Traditional Kamloops Christmas 2018

1

PREPARE A FAMILIAR DISH Hosts may agonize over their holiday menus, and some may feel compelled to prepare a family specialty or the same dishes their parents or grandparents prepared for holiday dinners when they were children. But holiday hosts can make things easy on themselves by choosing dishes they’ve made in the past, regardless of their place in family history. Chances are the ingredients for hosts’ own specialties are already in the pantry, saving a potentially time-consuming trip to the grocery store. And thanks to the familiarity factor, hosts’ own specialties likely won’t require as much time to prepare.

2

 NLY MAKE WHAT O GUESTS ARE LIKELY TO EAT Hosts also should not feel pressured to cook more food than is necessary. Holiday meals have a tendency to be lavish, but hosts don’t have to spend all day in the kitchen preparing food that will likely end up as leftovers or trash. Get a final headcount in the days before everyone comes over and adjust your recipes accordingly.

SHARE SOME COOKING DUTIES Another way to simplify cooking for a crowd is to invite guests to bring along a side dish or dessert. Guests who live nearby can make something in advance of the big meal, while hosts can hand over their kitchens to overnight guests who express a willingness to contribute their own homecooked dish to the party. Sharing the cooking duties gives hosts more time to connect with friends and family and serves as a great way to plan the menu in advance.

4

START EARLY If the big is on Christmas Day, that does not mean hosts have to start cooking while everyone unwraps their presents. Hosts who are uncertain about what to cook can look for meals that can be prepared in advance so come the big day all they need to do is turn on the oven and let meals cook while the family spends time together.

Traditional Cranberry Apple Pie

2 Pie Crust Shells 8-10 Medium-sized Apples 1 bag uncooked cranberries 1 cup Chopped Pecans 2 tsp Apple pie spice 2 tsp Orange Zest 2 tsp Cinnamon

400º F

35 to 40 m

Prepare cranberries as directed on the package and set aside. Peel and core the apples, enough to fill your pie shell in a thick layer. Add apple pie spice, orange zest, cinnamon and ½ cup of the cranberry mix to the apples. Stir on luke-warm stove until well mixed. Add 1 cup chopped pecans to the apple mix. Pour the cranberry/apple pie mix into pie shell so it is heaping in the center. Then take second pie shell and place on top. Press the edges together to secure, and take a fork to poke three spots in top of crust. Bake at 400 F for 35-40 min. or until crust is golden. Serve warm with whip cream or ice cream.

Christmas Caroling

Frosty the Snowman

Frosty the Snowman, was a jolly happy soul, With a corn cob pipe and a button nose, and two eyes made of coal.

Frosty the Snowman, is a fairytale, they say. He was made of snow, but the children know he came to life one day. There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found, For when they placed it on his head, he began to dance around! Oh, Frosty, the Snowman, was alive as he could be; and the children say he could laugh and play, just the same as you and me.

You know Dasher, and Dancer, and Prancer, and Vixen, Comet, and Cupid, and Donder and Blitzen But do you recall The most famous reindeer of all

Thumpety thump, thump, thumpety thump, thump, look at Frosty go. Thumpety thump, thump, thumpety thump, thump, over the hills of snow. Frosty the Snowman, knew the sun was hot that day, so he said, “Let’s run, and we’ll have some fun now, before I melt away.” Down to the village, with a broomstick in his hand, Running here and there, all around the square, sayin’, “Catch me if you can.”

For Frosty, the Snowman, had to hurry on his way, But he waved goodbye, sayin’ “Don’t cry, I’ll be back again some day.”

Thumpety thump, thump, thumpety thump, thump, over the hills of snow.

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose and if you ever saw it you would even say it glows. All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names They never let poor Rudolph play in any reindeer games.

He led them down the streets of town, right to the traffic cop; and only paused a moment, when he heard him holler, “Stop!”

Thumpety thump, thump, thumpety thump, thump, look at Frosty go.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Then one foggy Christmas eve Santa came to say: “Rudolph with your nose so bright, won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?” Then all the reindeer loved him as they shouted out with glee, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, you’ll go down in history!
