With less than three weeks until Christmas, it’s time to get those wish lists crossed off! With Canada Post on strike and the malls attracting crowds, skip the worrying this year and shop locally. Head down to one of these adorable Christmas markets to finish up any last-minute shopping and support our local entrepreneurs!
The Christmas season brings about delicious cookies, adorable decorations and, of course, gorgeous displays of lights spread across the city as far as the eye in the night sky can see. Using Christmas lights to celebrate the holiday season actually began back when they replaced real candles, as these were the first items ever used to decorate a Christmas tree. Today, you see Christmas lights adorning homes, businesses, handrails, mantels – you name it! These little bulbs come in so many colours for so many uses that we as a society have created a tradition of going to see Christmas lights each year. For a spectacular display, head just out of the city to see what the Airdrie Festival of Lights brings to the holiday season this year.
It’s that time of year again when all the ghosts, goblins, witches and black cats come out of storage and take over the streets. These traditional Halloween costumes often come along with mature content, like blood, guts, the spirit world – all those fun things – and therefore, are not welcomed by everyone. If you’re a family with young children, you’re definitely not seeking out the biggest scare, but you instead may be looking for fun, safe Halloween events. If this is you, listen up! We’ve got you covered, Calgary.
