Here’s to the working folk….

Those people who have to work over Christmas.  While we are lying on the couch watching Seinfeld and digesting turkey there are a whole host of people who have to work over Christmas – either for financial reasons or because they are in essential services.  Here’s to them!

Thanks to the doctors, the nurses, the fire fighters, the police and all those who work over their Christmas Day to make our lives safer and take care of us all.

Yes our Calgary fire fighters are pretty hot!

Thanks as well to the pilots, flight attendants, check in agents and all those who work at the airports moving our luggage (sometimes losing our luggage – sometimes finding our luggage), explaining why flights have been cancelled and why they have been reinstated, trying to fly through turbulence, explaining how the seat belt works when nobody is even listening to you.  To all of you a big thank you.

You know everyone is ignoring you…..

And thanks to all those hard-working people including temporary foreign workers who keep Tim Hortons and MacDonalds running so that (God forbid) we don’t have to go without our coffee and big macs even on Christmas Day!
