Many people here traditionally head to the cottage/farm for a couple of days of family time. Skating on the lake, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, ATVing, board games, charades, trivia, cards, too much food, drink … before the wind down of the holidays and the return to work and school.
In the cities, there are the usual New Years Eve celebrations at clubs, restaurants, family events, etc. Including many free rides available to curb drinking and driving, whether city buses, private services or the Red Nose Campaign https://www.sgi.sk.ca/operation-red-nose
We also have a large population in Saskatchewan who recognize the Julian calendar and celebrate Christmas on January 7th. For some families, that means two sets of Christmas celebrations!
For the rest of us, it means we get to experience the great foods that are available Vareniki (perogies) filled with potatoes, onions, cottage cheese, berries…borscht (beet soup)…cabbage rolls…yummy!!
…and then the exercise plan for 2019 starts !
