  5. i'm a fan of choir singing, so thanks for sharing the audio clip video ... i'm not sure i've ever heard 'I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day' before this, so it was nice to listen to the soothing tune :)

  6. Dominion must be strictly Canadian, I have never seen one. This ad looks like it is from the fifties, and are they still going strong?

  7. Oooo...I love ballroom dancing! Use to...when I was much younger but it was much simpler, not like how I see them doing it in the movies or in those dance contests on tv. I would not be able to do that.

  8. Hi Linda! Wow, you're from Montreal! That's where Just For Laughs is from, isn't it? Great video! :) I watch that all the time here in Singapore - it's hilarious! Have you ever been pranked by Just For Laughs though? I always wonder why people there don't recognise the same actors in the videos, haha! :)
