Lovely relaxing morning opening presents. We are all sick so I've not yet tried the seaweed flavoured gin that Bob and Tady sent from Halifax (along with other amazing items), but I'm sure it'll be great. Later in the day Gertrud and Mike dropped in. Then we went to my sisters for supper with my whole family and a couple of games (Mexican Train and Bang!).

Lovely meal, goose and fixings, with Margaret's family. As usual, gifts were opened after supper. It was all lovely. High points in gifts would be the new iphone Margaret's brother gave her, a fireside popcorn maker for William, and an amazing 1959 aerial photo of the farm that Margaret's cousin Allen had printed and framed for her parents. There was a good conversation with the girls in Toronto.

Celebrating Xin's successful defense last week, Mark and I took Xin to the Creek Bistro for supper this evening. As always, the food and the presentation of the food was incredible. We talked about film, Christmas traditions, food customs (eating something sweet at the end of a meal), and other light stuff. A very nice evening.

Last night the Caligari Project closed with the Fada Dance German Expressionist-themed dance party at the Exchange. Berny took command of the entry area where the puppet sideshow was scheduled to be but sicknesses had forced to downscale. His shadowbox and Beetlejuice performance, along with the dozens of decor pieces from "Der Glockner" set the tone for the party. I put up two projectors of old (and new) expressionist films and installed my tickletrunk viewer. Further inside was an evening long puppet/sand/drawing-projection by Tamara Unroe along with six amazing dance performances with stunningly bizarre Expressionist/Bauhaus inspired costumes, sounds, and movements. Berny and I judged the costume pageant. William went home after the second set of dances, feeling that the cold I've had is finally reaching him.

We went to Saskatoon on Friday for an appointment for William and stayed overnight. Coincidentally, Mike's whole family also came up for the same days so we ended up eating with his parents on Friday and having cake (of the birthday variety) on Saturday before returning home. We only did a bit of shopping (Lee Valley, Christies, and McNally Robi
