December has come quickly, and as Nationals and the Olympics approaches I wish Patrick good health and inner peace!

Happy Birthday to Patrick Chan
I love your skating even when you could not get enough score to win. I’m assuming your skating was always in stories.
Hope you have a good time on your birthday and also this year#HappyBirthday#Patrickchan #パトリック・チャン誕生祭

More ecstatic young skaters who met Pchiddy at the Sunset Figure Skating Club in Vancouver!

Skiing at Grouse Mountain
Wherever Patrick goes, he meets young fans with a smile! It’s clear that he planned on spending the holidays in Vancouver.
December 23: Still Hard at Work!
Skater Brian Chiem (Ice Palace in Edmonton) shared this training video, where Patrick did a side by side jump on the left. Beautiful!

December 21: Sneak Peak of the #FlytheFlag Campaign
I can’t wait to see the one starring Patrick, Scott and Tessa!

December 20: Olympic Channel Promo and Jingle Bell Rock
The Olympic Channel posted this video to highlight Patrick’s “unfinished business”:
— Olympic Channel (@olympicchannel) December 20, 2017
Patrick and the rest of the Canadian National Team sang joyously and off-key, but no matter! He started out with a lovely baritone but later sang off-key in tenor range, lol.
Personally, I enjoyed Kaitlyn and Andrew’s voices the best!
December 18: Major Update on Patrick!!
Patrick was back at Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) today for an announcement by Air Canada that it renewed its sponsorship as the Official Airline of the Canadian Olympic Committee and Canadian Paralympic Committee. Also, Patrick is one of five athletes who will be featured in a special campaign beginning next month (article link)! He also spoke with Lori Ewing (see below) about his move to Vancouver and the energy boost it gave him!
Proud to be flying @AirCanada to the #Pyeongchang2018 Winter Games. As a long-standing supporter, Air Canada has helped me and my teammates #FlyTheFlag to the Olympic Games. #TeamCanada. —————————————————- Fier de voler sur les ailes d’@aircanada vers #Pyeongchang2018 pour les Jeux d’hiver. En tant que supporteur de longue date, Air Canada m’a aidé à porter #HautLeDrapeau aux Jeux Olympiques. #ÉquipeCanada
Scroll to the second video in Tessa’s Instagram post to catch a clip of Patrick in the video shoot!

Vancouver Energy Boost
Now we finally have an update on Patrick’s situation! According to this CBC article, moving to Vancouver has re-energized him.
— CBC Olympics (@CBCOlympics) December 19, 2017
“The lifestyle of Vancouver does seem to really draw me towards there,” Chan said.
Chan said Marina Zoueva, his coach in Canton, Mich., supported the move, telling him “‘Patrick, whatever makes you happy, I’m happy you’ve found a place where you could regain that energy,’ and kind of the drive, the push,” he said.
“They’ve done so much for me, and I really wanted it to be an open-book policy, I didn’t want it to be ‘Oh I’m running away,’ and not letting them know. So I kept things very open.”
His move West, he said, has been that energy boost he needed.
I’m so happy to see that Patrick is feeling better and I look forward to seeing him live in Vancouver next month. Now, on to a strong finish for his Olympic journey!
December 16: Back in Ontario
Patrick attended the housewarming party of Michele Davison, former figure skater and a director for The Burlington Pond Hockey Training Centre!
December 10: New Video: “Hallelujah” LP Fantasy Version
I wanted to create a fantasy version of Patrick’s “Hallelujah” LP if it had been performed well. Here’s the mashup:
For music I chose Brooklyn Duo’s instrumental version of Jeff Buckley’s “Hallelujah”. I hope you all enjoy it!
December 8: Patrick Gets a New Car!
Our beloved Pchiddy spent the morning at Cowell Volkswagen in Richmond, BC, where he picked up his brand new white VW Tiguan! (Scroll through for more photos.)
Patrick had said before that he loves German cars, so I am not surprised. However, I did not expect him to buy a CUV. But I think the purchase signifies that he is definitely ready to settle down in Vancouver and start a new life there, and perhaps a new family, too. Congratulations, Patrick!
December 2: Patrick at the Cyclone Taylor Figure Skating Store
Patrick stopped by this skating store in Vancouver and appropriately posed for a photo in front of the Edea banner bearing his image. Lucky people!
Hopefully this month we’ll see (and hear) more of what Patrick is doing as he goes out and about Vancouver!
