Christmas

Merry Christmas!

Growing up, I remember listening to the Queen's Christmas broadcasts on radio, and later (from 1957 on) watching them on TV. This was something that my mother, who was born and raised in England, insisted on. Not that this was unusual; Queen Elizabeth II is Queen of Canada, and I'm sure her broadcasts are watched by many, perhaps most, Canadians.

I haven't regularly watched the Queen's Christmas broadcasts since I left home, but as of this year they will also be broadcast on The Royal Channel on YouTube. I'll definitely be tuning in!
