Christmas Food Court Flash Mob, Hallelujah Chorus - Must See!

To all my followers I want to share this great video clip that was filmed in my hometown of Welland.

It is really such a small world. My neighbour sent me this video not realizing it was filmed in my home town. I watched it not realizing as well until I started reading the comments below it and was just amazed when I realized that the Seaway Mall food court was where this video took place.

I have to say it made me proud of the little town I grew up in. Welland is rich in history with the Welland Canal that joins Lake Erie to Lake Ontario and it's many lift bridges. It is a blue collar town and it's population is comprised of many nationalities. It is also famous as well for all the murals that have been painted on the sides of buildings making it it's own unique town.

But I am also proud of the heritage that I come from. Families on both of my parents sides were all hard workers and helped make Welland what it is today. The entrepreneurial spirit was on both sides as well,
with Pupo's Super Market, still family run,
Mary Luska's Interiors, also knows as MJ Galleries and still run by my feisty aunt at the age of 80, 
Welland Trailer Sales, my Uncle Ed and cousin David Luska
and my mom's store, the Madame Shoppe which she had up until the day she died at the age of 77.

So today I proudly salute Welland and the Niagara Chorus for helping us all ring in the holiday spirit.
I hope this video warms your hearts as much as it did mine.

Happy Holidays,
