TheHolidays-Header-01

No matter what name we apply to this time of year, be it Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah or Festivus, it means the same things to each of us: tradition, family, love and the exchange of greetings with those who tend to stray from our thoughts until December rolls around again.

Advocate Media and its various publications have gathered, from across Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, a collection of stories that capture the true spirit of the season. We hope these stories will remind us all of the real reason we gather each year to wish for peace and goodwill among peoples everywhere. Thank you for visiting.
