The older I get, the more I enjoy the small things in life. The lure of the latest mammoth 4K big-screen TV can’t compete with a crackling fire on a cold and windy Sunday morning. The gifts piled under the tree mean nothing compared to having the family gathered around the table on Christmas Day.

Our newest, and perhaps my favourite, holiday is just around the corner. Family Day — the much-needed February long weekend — lands on the third Monday of the month in Alberta, Ontario and Saskatchewan. British Columbia, just to be different, celebrates the second Monday. To the other provinces, I can only say this: You’re missing out.

Most of the country is starting to come out of the dead of winter. Wiarton Willie has called for an early spring, and Shubenacadie Sam simply nodded his agreement.
