A video showing two refugee children excited about their first snowfall is going viral on Twitter. The children, bundled in thick coats, are shown excitedly running around outside. They spin and dance in the falling snow, collecting some in their hands.

It's a beautiful scene.

The children and their family are refugees from Eritrea, an African country with an extremely repressive regime. They are some of the lucky few to escape. They were living in a refugee camp in Sudan before being able to travel to Canada, where they are currently being housed by Rebecca Davies.

The video was posted to Twitter, where many found it inspiring. It was even retweeted by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.









In Canada, refugees can be brought to the country through private sponsorship. Even still, it can be a long and arduous process. This family was able to make it thanks to fundraising from the Rosedale United Church. Canada has expanded its immigration policy in recent years to accept more refugees. They plan to welcome around a million new immigrants over the next few years.

It seems like the program is doing a bit of good.





The family will be living with Davies for about a year while they settle in Canada.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
