Event: CP Holiday Train

Pictures from local paper, it was too dark for my camera

We have a tradition in  Bowmanville, my parents home is in the perfect location on the edge of town to see this magical event. This monday the CP (Canadian Pacific) Christmas Train made its way through your lovely little town. For several years now, friends and family gather, bringing the first of the home-made christmas treats to share and visit. As the time draws near all the lights are turned out as chairs are positioned at the windows to wait for the train to pass.  We watch the train tunnel, barely visible in the darkness, till the head light on the train shines through to tell us it is coming.  The train comes rolling down the track, all coloured Christmas lights and movement. Each year this is the beginning of the Christmas season for me. Please read the attached article and make a donation to your local food bank this season.
