Ah December aka Christmas month…
Not like it’s a surprise or anything. Same time, some month, same amount of busy busy busy every year. I’m not complaining, it’s a happy busy. I love the Christmas season. Everything about it.
So many things going on this month I just haven’t been able to write about them. Tons of pictures, just haven’t gotten around to sharing them. They say a picture is worth a thousand words…hmm wonder what a video is worth? Well, I’m going to give it a shot.
As Christmas approaches, there have been so many fun events. We took a bunch of pictures and I planned on sharing A LOT of them. Times running out. If I don’t share them soon Christmas will have come and gone.
The Downtown Duncan Christmas Kick Off…
I remember our first December in the Cowichan Valley watching Christmas fireworks. Being from Montreal, I had never experienced anything quite like it. I mean we had sleigh rides, but fireworks, in the winter? The first year we stood right up close to the town hall. When I saw how close the fireworks were, I’ll admit I was a tad nervous. I had never been that close to them before. 10 years later and it still amazes me, though I do stand further back now.
A few years ago we discovered the Lighted Truck Parade in Victoria. Again, it was like nothing I’d ever experienced before. Now we look forward to it every year. Here’s a video of this year’s full parade. The children in the background are, well I guess you’d say very excited!
Plan was to name each of the shop windows, but I’m running out of time. Sorry I didn’t get around to it. I’ll try again next year. If you see your store window please give it a big shout out in the comments. The Downtown Duncan windows in all their Christmas splendour needed to be shared so here’s a video….
