Santa Claus has come to down and he is resting on Ty’s head as he watches the Carnival Band play for the first West End Lumiere Festival.

Band groupies that we are, we followed the Pied Pipers of the Carnival Band down the Comox Greenway and along Denman Street to the recreation centre.

After sampling the best ever chicken wings in the bar at the Sutton Place, we headed down to the Hyatt for their Gingerbread Lane display.
The Four Seasons had their usual tree competition; here are some samples:
Happy holidays, everyone!
