What Team Welo Loves About the Holiday Season!

We asked our team what they love about the holiday season - and here is what they said!

Jack (Co-Founder)

Favourite part about the Holidays

Spending time with family is definitely my favourite part about the Holiday time.

I have a rather big extended family and as people get older with families, work, and life it tends to be hard to get everyone together but without fail we all find a way to get together for the Holidays.

It's a great time to reminisce on the wonderful experiences we shared growing up and to be excited about the new year to come. 

Favourite Holiday Food

We have a tradition of always having cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning before we open any presents.

As a kid, I was always too excited to be hungry or to sit still to eat a proper breakfast but would never turn down a fresh cinnamon bun. Now it is usually accompanied by a warm cup of coffee.

Favourite Christmas Songs/Movies

The original Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964) will always be the movie that reminds me of the Holidays.

Since I was young we would get a movie as a gift the night before which we would watch as a family. I think Rudolph was watched multiple times in the early years!

Katie (Co-founder)

Favourite part about the Holidays

Honestly I love everything about it haha the decorations, the lights, giving gifts, baking and the time with family and friends - how can I choose just one?!

Also my niece and nephews are at such a fun age (they're 6, 4 and 1) where they are so excited about everything which makes it even more exciting for me.

Favourite Holiday Food

I love hot chocolate with chocolate almond milk - SO good and SO easy.

I make my own version of a Starbucks peppermint mocha with coffee, chocolate almond milk and a small amount of peppermint extract - would highly recommend! 

Favourite Christmas Songs/Movies

As a child I was obsessed with The Grinch - I think I watched it every day during December (and of course, my favourite song was Where are you Christmas?).

These days I love all the sappy ones on Netflix - they make me cringe, but at the same time I have to find out what happens (even though we all obviously already know haha).

Favourite part about the Holiday’s 

I love the decorations throughout the entire city. There is a really warm and charming spirit that adds light to the season

I also love spending more quality time with my family up north at the cottage: the winter activities, playing games, sitting & reading by the fire, and cooking together!

My favourite part of Christmas-time is seeing all of my extended family that I don’t get to see often otherwise.

A close second is watching my dog Lexie try to rip open all the presents under the tree on Christmas morning.
