Christmas Tree Hunt in the Great Canadian Wilderness


Guest Post by Stefan Klopp

A few days before Christmas our son Stefan and his partner Laura went into the mountains to hunt for our Christmas tree. He recorded their adventure on video, which I would like to share with all my friends who might not be familiar with masses of snow in our nook of the world in Canada. I would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone and all a Happy and Blessed New Year.

    A really beautiful landscape with all the snow. We only have rain here since many months, it’s only grey and terrible. Thanks for sharing this little Canadian moment with us, dear Peter. All the best for the New Year for you, Biene and your family, kind regards Mitza

      It must be really depressing to get so much rain. I feel sorry for you people in Hamburg, who must experience this dreariness for months on end. On the other hand if you have to shovel snow all day to clear the pathways and driveway, you sometimes wish it was snow. There is something which we call ‘too much of a good thing’. Best wishes for 2018!

    All the best from Linköping, Sweden. Wir haben nur Frost im Moment – drum herum schneit es ein wenig. Wenn der Schnee nun in Nordamerika ist!
    Thanks for sharing such beautiful video with one amazing young woman preparing first step “Weihnachtsbaum”. She is very nice and lovely. Habt alle einen “Guten Rutsch”. Der Baum steht sicher noch, so frisch wie er war, kind regards Ruth

      Vielen, vielen Dank, liebe Ruth, für deine lieben Zeilen, in denen du deine Bewunderung über unsere – so hoffen wir – zukünftige Schwiegertochter zum Ausdruck gebracht hast. Nach all den Schneestürmen scheint jetzt wieder die Sonne. Da sieht unsere Landschaft im weißen Kleid richtig prächtig aus. Best wishes for 2018!

      Ja, als ich Stefans Video sah, war auch ich gleich begeistert und bat ihn um Erlaubnis, es in meinen Blog zu setzen. Das Video ist ja wie eine Bombe eingeschlagen und hat mehr als 300 Likes kassiert. Morgen fahre ich zur weiteren Behandlung nach Kelowna.
      Auch von uns, alles Gute und Gottes Segen zum Neuen Jahr!
