Christmas 2020

It’s going to be a different Christmas this year, to be sure. Things will be a lot quieter than what we are accustomed to. Most of us will be staying at home with members of our household. I suspect a lot of people will be celebrating Christmas dinner with their families over FaceTime, Skype, and Zoom. It’s a good thing Santa is immune to the pandemic and has been provided world-wide clearance to make his rounds, come Christmas Eve.

Let’s hope by this time next year, we’ll once again be able to celebrate the Christmas season with family and friends. I’m optimistic this will happen. With only a couple of weeks left in 2020, we are starting to see the light at the end this long, dark tunnel. In some ways, Christmas has come a bit early this year.

I understand Santa will be stopping by Crowsnest Pass right after he makes his last delivery on Christmas morning. It’s been a year since his last visit here. I hope to spend a few hours fishing alongside him on the Crow. He always out-fishes me but that’s okay.

    Happy Holidays to all. Trust both you & Carol are well and staying safe.

    2021 just has to be better, doesn’t it ? At least going in to the New Year there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel – and it might be good or at least better news. There’s a couple of vaccines now in the offing and maybe, just maybe, we should all be hopeful.

    At least it is the season for being hopeful.

    And, one bright spot is the possibility our favorite fishing haunts and the nice ones living therein may have enjoyed their “year off” and, er, forgotten a few things?

    Best to all.

      Hi Terry,

      Carol and I are doing well and staying safe. Hope you guys are too. Hopefully, we will all be able to get vaccinated before too long, although it sounds like it will still be a while before this happens. In the meantime, I’m sure the trout will be waiting to teach us a thing or two. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Hey Vic.

    I hope you have a happy holiday season, such as it is. All the best to you and Carol in hopes of a much better year ahead. And by the way, you never did share how your fishing was with the Easter Bunny last spring. Any stories there to tell?

    Cheers my friend!

      Hi Bob,

      Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and Janet! The Easter Bunny and I haven’t been out on the river together for a couple of years. Our schedules didn’t line up last spring. We’re planning for this April. Care to join us?

    Merry Christmas Vic and family. Just loved your blog and these beautiful Christmas drawings. Say hi to Santa when you hit the river together. See you in 2021.

      Hi Gerry,

      Merry Christmas to you and yours, as well! The drawings are from Christmas cards, going back to the late 1980s and early 90s. If the weather stays nice, there will probably be a few people out on the river over the holidays. I’ll say hi to Santa. See you next summer!
