December Days - Day 14

Linda, my mother in law, came over today to celebrate Christmas early since she will be away during the holidays. After we picked her up from the ferry terminal, we headed into downtown Vancouver to take in some of the Christmas things going on. After visiting Canada Place to see the Christmas tree display, we headed over to the Vancouver Christmas Market, it's third year, and enjoyed walking around a German Themed market, taking in all the smells, sounds and sights. The handmade goodies, the homemade foods, the cooking smells of sausages, baked apples, German pancakes, and the all around smell of the cups of apple cider as people carried those cute little cups filled with the intoxicating beverage.

Welcome to the market, if you haven't visited it yet, you must at least once.

What there is to see inside.

The big tree in the center of the market.

This sign says it all/

Tim and his mom

Me and my mother in law.

The nutcracker and the Santa are seen throughout the market.

The mug that you carry your apple cider in while in the market. If you want
to keep the mug for yourself, you already have left a deposit on it when
you purchased your drink, so you just not need to return it,
It was a fun hour or so and not too busy since it was mid afternoon on a work day. If you are in the Vancouver area during the holidays, it really should be somewhere you put on your must see list.
