On the Twelfth day of Christmas

Welcome. This is the final day of our promotion and your final chance to enter to win our fantastic prize package and to take advantage of great member offers. Click the the graphic at the bottom of the page to discover all the details.

We have greatly enjoyed sharing our Holiday memories and traditions with you. We do hope that you may have found an inspiration among them, or were given a chance to reflect on some of your favorite things about the holidays, too.

Today, we will leave you with some Christmas did-ya-knows.

Across Canada, there are 2933 farms that grow Christmas trees. In all, that equals 37,612 hectares of Christmas trees.

While, we all know that Santa hails from the North Pole (the Canadian part!), he might have a fondness for these other places in Canada: Christmas Island, Nova Scotia; Reindeer Station, Northwest Territories; Stocking Harbour, Newfoundland, or; Chimney Lake, British Columbia.

A traditional Inuit Christmas dinner might include arctic char or seal, caribou, tea and bannock.

Winnipeg, Manitoba is unofficially known as the Christmas capital of Canada. This is because "Winterpeg" is one of the few places in Canada that is able to virtually guarantee its residents a white Christmas.

The first Christmas carol to be written in an Aboriginal language was "The Huron Carol". Originally written in the native language of the Huron/Wendat people by missionary Jean de Brebeuf in 1643, it was re-written in English in 1926.

The TransCanada Etsy team would like to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season. Thank you for supporting our team throughout the past year.
