December means we’re about to close the chapter on 2017 – and what a roller coaster ride it has been. Now we’re just days away from Christmas and the other holidays December brings, like Hanukah, Kwanzaa, and even Boxing Day in Canada. When you study the migration patterns of birds, you think about Canada a lot more than you would with other hobbies. Birds like Golden Eagles and Turkey Vultures migrate from their feeding grounds in Canada to the warmer climes in places like Texas, and as far away as the Caribbean during the winter.
Boxing Day is celebrated in Canada, and throughout the United Kingdom on December 26, and some say it started as a servants’holiday. Historical accounts say servants were given the day after Christmas off to thank them for their help prepping the great houses for the holiday. For shopping and preparing the feasts, decorating the house, and making guests feel welcome during their stay, the staff were ceremoniouslypresented boxes of food and other gifts, (think Downtown Abbey) hence the name.
Today, we like to take the day off by going to the movies at Christmas. After the gifts have been unwrapped, and the dinner eaten, heading out to see one of the holiday movies is usually on the list of things to do. Whether you take in a movie on Christmas day or the day after, you’d be wise to search Groupon and use a Groupon code to secure a great deal on your tickets through Fandango. There’s nothing worse than getting to the theatre and standing at the back of a long que only see the sold-out sign put up for the screening you came to see. Then, you’re faced with filling the time between the next showing, or trying to see another movie that fits the limited time you allocated to see your first choice. You can avoid this inconvenience when you use the services of Fandango to order your tickets online. You can buy tickets to the hottest movies and skip the lines, hassle and cold weather and arrive ready to walk in like a celebrity on the red carpet. Speaking of red carpets, Fandango lists lots of celebrity information you can read and stay up to date on the latest projects your favorite stars are doing, and find out when their next film will be released. Whether you stay in place this winter like a bird of prey, or migrate like a Snowy Owl, you can take advantage of the services of Fandango wherever you go.
