Christmas 2011

'Tis the season for Barista bears, at least in some places (like BC). This year seemed to be more of a dog year (in Alberta), but one Barista Bear was found... and brought home to enjoy the warmth and festivities of this holiday season. Which begs the question... what adventures can a Barista Bear have in one year? This is a chance to find out.

Christmas Day... and little bear has a gift under the tree... will little bear like it?

Of course little bear liked it! The perfect size for a little bear and it reminds him of where he came from. A little taste of home in this new place in which he finds himself.

Perhaps we too need a little taste of home in the places in which we find ourselves. At Christmas time, home is what draws us. For some of us, there is no home to return to. For others it is too far away, or too expensive.

But wherever we are, we can bring a piece of home with us. Maybe it's a tradition we celebrate. Or a decoration that we treasure. Perhaps a photograph. Whatever it is... we all need to connect with home.

For our little bear, this little ornament makes him feel welcome in this place.
