From our Current Issue
By Molly MacDonald
The Klondike Sun always takes a holiday break in December, to let our volunteers enjoy festivities as much as everyone else. But there’s so much going on in Dawson in December that we wanted to share at least this one story between our Dec. 16 issue (the last print issue for 2015) and our Jan. 13 issue (the first print issue for 2016). Here’s Molly MacDonald’s take on how Dawsonites made and responded to recent gingerbread house delights.
No winter-worn Hansel and Gretel could have resisted the holiday cheer swirling around the Visitor Information Centre at Dawson’s first annual gingerbread house competition, December 11th and 12th. With the fragrant perfume of cookies and apple cider filling the air, Dawsonites marvelled at the confectionary genius of their fellow citizens, and cast votes for their favourite gingerbread creations.

When I spent my first Christmas in the Yukon, I was so absolutely thrilled to actually experience all of those iconic Hallmark card moments associated with the holidays that were so different from anything else I grew up with in South America. I wanted to bake ALL the cookies, make ALL the snow angels, wear ALL the ugly sweaters, sing ALL the carols. I felt like all those snow globe dreams were finally materializing: I could taste them, and touch them, and wear them. I had my first REAL tree, from a REAL forest, at the age of 25. And, I’m sorry, but I ain’t never switching back to plastic.

Apologies to our email pdf subscribers. Our office computer crashed and died this morning, so we will be late getting your subscriptions out to you for the Nov. 4 issue. We expect to have this problem corrected by the weekend.
Many thanks and much appreciation to Meadia Solutions, Yukon’s Apple dealer. Trevor and Florian have come to our rescue with an ads for hardware trade that will see our aging (and now dead) iMac replaced with a newer, bigger, faster machine on just 24 hours notice.

Today we conducted a very informal, casual count of front lawn election signs in an attempt to predict which party would garner the most votes in Dawson City.
