Last night I had an awesome time on the second CP Holiday Train. There were lots of lights and I enjoyed the ride a lot.
On the ride they handed out cookies and hot chocolate. We also passed a freight train on the ride. It was loooooonnng! There were lots of people watching the holiday train. Out the window we could see people waving and we waved back. There was even a man standing on a garbage can, video taping the train go by. It made me feel like I was a movie star walking onto the stage. When the ride ended there was a huge crowd. Thousands of people came out to watch the train's band. This year the band was Devin Cuddy and Kelly Prescott. They played nice songs and we danced to the music.
And I even gave Santa a fist bump!
When it was over we went to our car, then came back with the 9 bags of food we collected on our street.
I hope the food goes to people who really need it and gives them a bit of a happier holiday.
Thank you to everyone who donated food to me and the Daily Bread Food Bank. And thanks to CP for making this happen.
