Christmas snuck up on me very quickly this year. Report card frenzy and university assignments took over earlier in the month and it was followed by the Christmas excitement at school. I worked right up until December 22nd this year which didn’t leave much time to explore anything Christmas related in Vancouver before the big day!
Yesterday I decided I would head downtown to Christmas at Canada Place. I was so excited when I saw this was happening…only to find out it was the 30th year! How in the world had I been oblivious to it all these years? It was a beautiful evening and I thoroughly enjoyed all the lights and decor.
Fun Fact: In 1993 Canada Place bought all the Christmas window displays from Woodwards when the store closed!

Afterwards I walked to the Four Seasons to look at the Festival of Trees. I only looked at the trees in the first floor lobby but they were quite impressive.
I also had a look at the 76-ft tree outside the Vancouver Art Gallery.
It really was an enjoyable day! I already can’t wait until next year. I was one day late to see the Gingerbread Houses at the Hyatt so I’ll have to make sure I see those next year. I’ve seen them several times before and I’m always impressed!
Merry Belated Christmas everyone!❤
