They have been a lot of great holiday times in my live. Playing cards and boardgames in family, eating, drinking, sometime too much people inside, too hot but -35° to -45° outside. Playing cribbage, 500, poker, careers, monopoly, dealer's choice, pay day and masterpieces. Festing like the french canadian tradition to the sunrise. Remember the day of my mom have squeezed her nipple closing a sparkle wine bottle during a card game. I know that wasn't funny for her but everybody have laugtht so much, almost pissed in my pant. But time change, now she's gone about 15 years ago, but keeping every small moments in memories. There's a painting of her, 17 years old, 53 years ago, she was holding me in my few days of life, before my first Christmas in Montréal.
