Island Gyal / Snowy Hill

All of the snow that we have been having recently reminded me of one of my favourite short stories I’ve written. Born in Canada within a Caribbean family it was very common for us to have friends and family from the islands over for long visits. More often than not, these visits would happen during the Summer. However, once in awhile, we would get a brave soul willing to leave their sun and heat, to experience a good old fashioned Canadian winter. It was always a blast for me and my siblings to watch the culture shock as they had to adjust to our Canadian cold. We definitely did our best to have them experience all that winter has to offer and laugh at the hilarity that ensues.

This story is inspired by those visits.

Hope everyone has a safe and fun rest of the winter. All of the best to you and yours.
