Historic St. John's Presbyterian Church in Belfast presented a beautiful white Christmas Day scene.

Blustry weather conditions meant drivers neeeded to pay close attention but main roads were bare, or mainly bare, for the many motorists making their way to Christmas dinners across the province.

The congregation of St. John's history dates back to 1803 when settlers were brought from Scotland by Thomas Douglas, the fifth Earl of Selkirk. Some came from the Shires of Ross, Argyle, and Selkirk, a few from the Isle of Uist and Mull, but the vast majority came from the Isle of Skye. A small log chapel was first used for worship services.
