Season's Greetings from the SNN Staff SNN Christmas Tree

In the midst of Christmas preparations and all the commercialism that surrounds it, take a moment to reflect on the true meaning of this celebration. Yes, there is too much emphasis on buying the best gift, having the prettiest outfit, the biggest turkey and having ‘The Party of the Season’.

Take some time this holiday and look beyond the ribbons and bows.

The Christmas season is a time from our busy schedule, whether it is school or work, and focus on ourselves, our families and our friends. It is a time to remember how much they mean to us.

It is a time to reflect and re-energize ourselves and, most importantly, it is a time to think of those who are less fortunate than us.

So, instead of looking at Christmas as a “Commercial Christmas”, make it a “Magical Christmas”. Be thankful for what you have in life, for your family and friends. Sing your favourite Christmas song, hug a friend, forgive someone that may have disappointed you. And take time to give to someone less fortunate than you.

Have a truly magical Christmas!
from Carmelita, Sebastien and Kelly


Merry Christmas from Winkler, Manitoba
from Ashleigh V., SNN Senior Editor, Garden Valley Collegiate, Winkler, MB

I don’t know what the weather’s like in your part of the country, but here in Manitoba it’s freezing! I’ve decided that I’m moving to Florida when I get older.

Despite the hustle and bustle of the season, I also hope you all take the time to relax and, if you’re like me, catch up on your reading! As far as the SNN reporters go, remember, this year is the real millennium New Year, so keep your eyes open for the sky to fall or any other cool stories.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
