Because of the COVID-19/Coronavirus Pandemic, many of the ways that Christmas is celebrated might be different this year. As our regular lives have changed because of what’s happening across the planet, we’ve had to come up with new safer ways to celebrate our existing traditions.
A Northern Heritage Christmas is our contribution to this change! Our goal is to bring our readers a new and unique hub for everything Christmas in the Northern BC.
