Tibb's Eve is a sacred tradition in Newfoundland, but it's different for everyone. g2g founder Kim Todd and g2g campaign coordinator Natalie Haire share their unique but all-too similar Tibb's Eve experiences and traditions.
Tibb's Eve at 22 - by Natalie
Tibb's Eve is different for everyone but for me it truly means being with friends. For people my age, Tibb's Eve is designated for friends, because the days following are reserved for family, and they wouldn’t be able to celebrate Christmas with many of the people close to them otherwise.
I don’t have a set Tibb’s Eve tradition that I do every year, but I’ve spent many Tibb's Eve’s partying with friends and enjoying live music. I find Tibb's Eve is a great night for music downtown, and I have seen many fantastic shows. One show that stands out to me was AE Bridger and Fog Lake at George Street United Church. The music was dreamy and the space was so warm and welcoming.
We never really make up our minds until the last minute but today there’s talk of, pool, Georgestown pub, and partying, so who knows where the night will take us. This Christmas has been a special one for my friends because this year, many of us moved away and we are finally back together after months apart. As long as we’re together we’ll have a memorable Tibb's Eve.
