Ice skating is not only a delightful pastime but also a wonderful way to embrace the chilly charm of Calgary winter. However, amid the gliding and twirling, ensuring safety should be a priority to guarantee that the experience remains joyful and injury-free. Here, we offer some tips to help you achieve safety while enjoying some winter fun.

  1. Wear Proper Clothing: Dressing in layers is important because it helps trap heat and keeps you warm. Consider a waterproof and windproof outer layer to protect against the cold and wind.

There are many opinions about this. If you are in a position that you need to sell your home, well then the answer is obvious. But if you want to use holiday seasons; Christmas, Thanksgiving or even the middle of summer as a selling strategy, there are a few things you need to consider: 

  • There are fewer homes on the market – true, but there are also fewer buyers looking. So if you do need a fast sale, this is likely not the strategy for you! 
  • Buyers who are looking during holidays are likely motivated for one reason or another, so you might get what you’re asking for since the selection is so slim. But you may also seem like a motivated seller. So if low-ball offers are not something you want to deal with, this isn’t the ideal for you.

Putting up Christmas lights can be a fun and festive way to decorate your home for the holidays. To ensure that this process is enjoyable, safe, and visually stunning, consider these helpful tips:

Remembrance Day is a time for solemn reflection and honoring our veterans, while Christmas is all about festive cheer and bright, twinkling lights. So, waiting until after November 11th not only avoids the clash of holiday themes but also prevents any awkward "Is it too soon for this?" debates. Let's give our brave veterans their well-deserved moment, and once…
