TORONTO - Prime Minister Stephen Harper spent an hour at a seniors home in his Calgary Southwest riding Sunday afternoon in one of his few public appearances for the holidays.

Rows of seniors sat patiently for Harper who made small talk and wished them a Merry Christmas.

He also organized a series of group photos with the residents of the Garrison Green Seniors Community.

The prime minister arrived home to Calgary late last week.

A spokeswoman from his office said Harper isn't planning to make any other public appearances but is hoping to take in a Calgary Flames game while in the city.
