Iqaluit students deck the halls of the legislature

Elementary and middle school students from Iqaluit have been decorating Christmas trees in the lobby of the legislative building over the past few days. Here, Grade 1, 2 and 3 students from Nakasuk school are seen wearing toques they were given after lending a hand on Thursday. Premier P.J. Akeeagok also attended the first day of this year’s Christmas Lights Across Canada display at the legislature, which kicked off on Thursday. (Photo by Maggie Nooshoota)

      Almost all the Inuit people screams “decolonize” but they like everything about this pagan society celebrates (Halloween, christmas, valentine and amongst others.)

    We must not lose the significance of Christmas, to celebrate the birth of Santa Clause, also known as Chris Tiberius Kringle, that’s where Christmas originates from.
