Friday Free For All – Special Edition

Friday, December 25, 2015 @ 6:01 AM


There is only one message  to share on this special edition of  the Friday Free for All and that is  Merry Christmas.

We hope you will  use this open thread today, to  share  your greetings  as today  is the one day we can wish each other well.

We know not everyone’s Christmas will be ‘merry’, but we hope  you  will be able to  find  a way  to make it the best it  can be,  whatever  your circumstances.

I  personally want to thank  the members of the 250News team,  our clients,  and of course our readers  for all your support during 2015 and  offer my  heartfelt  wish  for all to have a healthy, happy, prosperous  year  ahead.

As  I reflect on the generosity  and kindness of our neighbours  and friends  during this  special time  of year,  I am reminded of the three  special words Ben Meisner would say when he signed off on his Christmas editorial,  I  share them  again  with  you…..

“There is magic”

Merry Christmas everyone.

-Elaine Macdonald-Meisner



Merry Christmas Elaine. There is magic indeed. All the best to you and your family. God Bless.

Merry Christmas to you Elaine, your staff, and all the readers and posters on 250. We may not always agree with each other, but I think we can agree that we want all to have a Merry Christmas. A huge thumbs up to White Goose Bistro, Twisted Cork, and all the other places that offer a way for all to have a delicious Christmas dinner. Very super way to give back. They are magic.

A very Merry Christmas to you too Elaine and all your great staff. You all do a wonderful job here and we are all very thankful to you.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Merry Christmas everyone


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope everyone is able to share this special time friends and family. Be safe out there

Merry Christmas and thank you for the important reminder Elaine, “there is magic”!
Yes indeed. Everyday I wake up I have a choice to be thankful, see the miraculous in the mundane, and choose to feel blessed. Sometimes I forget, and get silly about trivial things.
But, more often, these days, I live in gratitude for wonderful PG, the kind, funny, creative people, and the ease at which all things can be enjoyed, for today. Not every day is an easy day, but every day has magic, when my eyes stay focused!

We hope this Christmas enriches your life;
May each day be happy and bright,
Overflowing with pleasure and love;
May your Christmas be filled with delight.

A lifetime of love in a hug and a smile,
A reason to visit and stay for a while
The strength of a bond that’s destined to last,
The joys of the present, The warmth of the past

These are the treasures a fortunate few
Are lucky to cherish all their lives through.
These are the blessings on which we depend,
For these are the gifts of a very best friend.

Wishing our “Very Special Friend’s”
Happiness, Good Luck and Good Health
Not only at Christmas but all year through

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Thank you Elaine for the message of Magic! We are indeed very blessed living in Prince George! Sure miss you Ben! May Health, Peace and Harmony be with us all in the New Year and always!

Merry Christmas everybody.

Hope everybody has a great morning and a joyous afternoon

Seasons Greetings!

What a Beautiful Day out today.
Not Too Cold-Light Snow Falling.
A Wonderful Christmas Day.

Joyeuses Fêtes!
Felices Fiestas!
Jie Ri Yu Kuai
Forhe Feiertage
Happy Holidays!

This sure is a special free for all . No discussion . No descent . No opinions . No nonconfomaty , Just the bleating of the flock .There is in deed magic . Well done . Would Ben be proud of this moment ? I don’t think so .

Editor’s note:
You would be wrong.
