A Whole Range of Feelings
This year’s reality is different. If you are like me and you contrast the life you had in December 2019 and your life now in December 2020, maybe you will find more complicated feelings than simply “joy” and “pleasure”. Or maybe not!
6 façons de passer les fêtes en solo
Audrey Lagace vous présente ses 6 façons préférées de passer les fêtes en solo. Que vous soyez seul en raison de la pandémie ou par choix, rien ne vous empêche de vous faire plaisir, vous mettre confortable et prendre soin de vous. 1.

Although this year will probably be different, I know that wherever I end up celebrating the holidays, I will be making this cider and feeling like I’m back home.
It’s Normal to Eat More During the Holidays
We're often led to believe that eating intuitively implies stopping when we're full: it's false. Eating intuitively means that we're able to recognize that sometimes, we want to continue eating despite being full, and that we can allow ourselves to do it.
