12 Days of Christmas Giveaways – Santa Trains from Waterloo Central Railway

This time of year, the elves are busy tuning up Santa’s sleigh for the big night, so Santa has opted for a different mode of transportation.  Over the next few weekends leading up to Christmas you can find Santa Claus riding the rails with some help from his friends at the Waterloo Central Railway.     
As listed on the website….
Enjoy an exciting train ride with Santa and his helpers before he has to head back to the North Pole to load the sleigh with toys for his adventure on Christmas Eve.
That sounds like an amazing trip.  Even our poll participants agree that they would like to see Santa on a Train! Now is the time to book your Santa Train ride as tickets are going fast and some of the allotted times are almost booked up.

  1. This would be an amazing opportunity for me and my three kiddos to do something special together to celebrate the holidays!!! Our family tradition is to decorate the tree together. We put on Christmas music, I put on the lights and the boys decorate putting on all the special ornaments they have made over the years along with all the ones nana gives them each year while we Sing along with the Christmas carols. I talk about how their Uncle Kirby loved Christmas and we called him Mr. Christmas as a way to keep his memory alive with us during the holidays since he passed away before the kids were born and they love hearing about him as a way to get to know him.

  2. One of our favourite traditions is going to both Waterloo Park and Victoria Park to see the Christmas lights. Our kids love walking around in the snow admiring all of the lights. Afterwards, at home we will have snacks and watch the original How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

  8. As my kids get older, some of the traditional Christmas activities we've done have slowed. In an effort to make Christmas last longer than 20 insane minutes Christmas Morning I had to start coming up with really fun distractions. One year was mini nerf guns in their stockings on their beds. But my most successful idea, was silly string! My children now spend Christmas Eve with their Dad and come home ChristmasDay. They more excited to walk in this door, drop their treasures, and run up to their stockings for that silly string then anything else under the tree! Yes it's messy, but so easy to clean up, and so worth it. And I'll take every second I get thanks

  9. The only tradition i really hold on to really is the making ht esame cookies i used to make with my Nana almost every year. Keeping her alive through cookies .

  10. Our traditions are baking cookies together & enjoying an outing to the Christmas tree farm.

  11. We have a few different traditions well partake in before the big day. We decorate gingerbread houses and like to go for an evening walk and see all the lights.

  12. We bake Norwegian Christmas cookies, go to the fireworks at the Wonders of Winter in Waterloo Park, enjoy Christkindl Market and my daughter sings at retirement homes with her girls choir. So many favourite traditions! Would love to take my son on the train, too!

  13. Every year we get a real Christmas tree and the kids go to houses in our neighbourhood being secret Santa and leaving little gifts!

  14. Our family tradition is waiting until boxing day to get in on all the deals.

  16. This will be our second Christmas here in Canada. Here, we experienced white Christmas. It's a new exciting experience, as we came from a tropical country. Back in the Philippines which may be tagged as the Christmas capital of the world, you can feel the Christmas season when the "ber" months begin as you can hear Christmas songs everywhere. People starts to place their bright lanterns, Christmas lights and some put their Christmas trees after All Saint's Day (Nov 1). On Christmas Eve, we exchange gifts with family and relatives, then we enjoy the "noche buena" after our thanksgiving prayer. On Christmas day, we attend church mass then go back home to wait for our godchildren and kids (from all walks of life) to give them gifts. It's kinda tiring but we enjoy much when kids (more than a hundred) visit us. We just like seeing the smiles on their faces and the joy that they feel. Here in Canada, it's a different experience but we are having fun. On our first Christmas here, we went to Victoria Park and Waterloo Park to see the amazing lights. We also went to the church. We had our "noche buena" and exchanged gifts. Somehow, it's sad since we had no relatives here but gained new friends. That, we are very grateful.

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
