Always winter, but never Christmas

Maya, Mark and I packed (that is what we are doing in the picture above) up all the hats, scarves, gloves, notebooks, pens and candy into gift bags, but we had to postpone the trip to the village. The forecast calls for a cold front to push south bringing us -40s and -50s by tomorrow afternoon. The school that the children attend is poorly heated, so they will get a few more vacation days until this front passes and we have to wait until Monday or Tuesday to hand all these gifts out.

You might recognize the title from the Chronicles of Narnia. I did not watch the movie (this city lacks theaters) but I have read the books by C.S. Lewis. Siberia reminds me of that place that is always winter, but never Christmas.
