Christmas Time in Our Multicultural Vancouver
Well, it's that time again! As we all ready ourselves for another happy festive season, let's remember to be thankful for all that we have. We are fortunate indeed to be living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We also live in one of the most multicultural cities in the world. And as not every culture celebrates Christmas, most do celebrate some kind of winter festival marking the solstice or change of seasons.
For starters, did you know that Vancouver City Council helps the cities different cultural groups celebrate their various holidays by creating special lighting displays on the grounds of city Hall. It's called The City Hall Lights Program. Such a great idea and a great way to educate the people of Vancouver about their neighbours and their celebrations.
The Vancouver Christmas Market is back for its third year from November 24 to December 24, 2012 on the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Plaza. Sample their delicious food items from Germany and find your unique Christmas gift. Enjoy seasonal music and a great entertainment program of authentic folk groups.
Then there is the celelbration of Traditional European and American Christmas Music with The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Last year every ticket sold out for these performances - so book while you can.
For all people young and old, Christmas at the Vancouver Aquarium is a real treat. And if the tree being lit by an electric eel isn't enough, there's also the amazing "Scuba Claus" feeding the fish in the big tank to the absolute delight of all.
Whatever your cultural heritage or your tradition for celebrating this season, remember to be kind to each other and enjoy spending time with the ones you love. Happy Holidays.
