Finally with a day off work, today was spent enjoying some of the amazing Christmas activities that Vancouver has to offer. First off, I made the trip down Santaland to visit the world famous Santa Clause and find out if I have been naughty or nice and hopefully sneak in my Christmas List!! The line was very long and took two hours but finally I was able to see the Jolly Man in Red, we shared a few Ho Ho Ho’s and then I was on my way to let the little ones have some of his time. (Santa land was wonderful this year as you can see in the link found here )
Second spot on the list was right downtown Vancouver at the Vancouver Hyatt hotel’s Gingerbread Lane!! There were such amazing entries this year, but I always fall in love with the large one, this year it was of the Hyatt herself!
Next destination was to be the Four Seasons Festival of Trees, which I have been attending since I was too little to reach the ornaments on the tree! But of course, no Holiday trek to the hotel is complete without a stop at Holt Renfrew to admire the luxe decor and to get a head start on next years list!
I instantly fell in love with a tree as soon as I walked through the Hyatt lobby doors, it was clearly a match made in heaven (and I can even reach the tiny bottles now and snag them off of the tree!)
Last but not least I visited Burnaby Winter Wonderland at Burnaby Village Museum (where my Back to School Set was taken.) It’s even more beautiful at night, filled with millions of sparkling lights. A cup of coco in hand, I wondered around the village for a while, getting lost in the sounds of old timey Christmas music while I took in the sights. Just as I was about to leave the park, I noticed a door, behind that door was Father Christmas, fortunately he assured me that he would get my last minute additions to my Christmas list off to Santa Claus before he makes his trip around the world!
I made it home to curl up in front of the fire after a nice long day, thinking that there are still so many more Vancouver activities that I have yet to do before Christmas, but for now, champagne and head rubs!!
And as Promised, here is Santa <3
I hope that you all are having an amazing Holiday Season thus far~
