2015 Imoo Family Christmas Letter

Blessings to you and Merry Christmas!  It was a great year for our family, filled with many blessings.  Ironically, two of the highlights happened during the same time while Gail and I were apart: our 15th wedding anniversary and a family trip to the Philippines (more on that later).

Thus, enjoy our 14th annual Christmas letter, complete with personal highlights (and lowlights), what we’re thankful for, what we’re looking forward to next year, and what you can pray for!

Canucks Christmas Song (with Ben Hutton and Jake Virtanen)

Here is our Canucks Christmas song – it’s a parody of Run DMC’s “Christmas in Hollis” book-ended by “My Favourite Things” from The Sound of Music.

We had a great time working with the Vancouver Canucks on this project. Canucks rookies Ben Hutton and Jake Virtanen join us for this video – they were so awesome to work with and had a lot of fun shooting with us.

Once again, I’m joined by the lovely and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao. As well, thanks to my brother Jason Imoo for producing the song.

Merry Christmas to all of you Canucks fans! I’ll be writing a blog about some of the “behind the scenes” stories from our shooting day soon.

Those 3 words were the first-ever words I spoke to Gail. The date: October 1989. The place: backstage at Richmond’s Gateway Theatre. The occasion: JN Burnett Junior Secondary School’s fall concert. As our respective choirs were getting ready to perform, I passed by this cute, unassuming girl on my way to the restroom. While hurriedly rushing to take care of business, I guess “Are you nervous” was the best and most relevant thing I could come up with!

This encounter started an 8-week courting period, culminating in me asking Gail to be girlfriend exactly 26 YEARS AGO TODAY. On Thursday, December 14, 1989, 2 lives changed forever in the hallowed halls of Burnett. That was the day a scrawny, immature, goofy-haired boy asked this beautiful, humble, quiet girl to go to that night’s school dance with him. Thankfully for both of them, she said yes. And the rest, as they say, is history.
