Woody the Talking Christmas Tree resurfaced last year to the delight and horror of many Haligonians and Dartmouthians who recall this chatty mall-bound conifer from their youth. Woody can be elusive, but The Coast managed to get a pre-season quote from the 15-metre holiday behemoth via treemail: “Wow! Thank you so much to The Coast and everyone in Halifax who voted for me as Best Local Character! This is a TREEmendous honour, especially after being away for so many years. I'm so happy you didn't FIRget about me, and I can't wait to see you again at Mic Mac Mall soon!”

The price of everything has more or less gone up including heating oil which means staying warm this winter is going to cost you more. What are your ways to try to cut down on heating costs?
