Say Hello to the Holiday Spirit

It’s November and we all know what that means. It’s time to deck those halls and jingle your way into the festivities that come once Thanksgiving and Halloween are over.

While we wait for our American neighbours, who still need to celebrate their Thanksgiving to catch up to us, it’s finally appropriate to start watching holiday films and singing some carols.

The holiday spirit is slowly coming back and now no one is going to look at you strangely if you say that you watched “Dr. Suess’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas” last night.

It’s totally okay for people to listen to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” on repeat as they bake gingerbread cookies to their heart’s content.

It’s also a good time to start looking for those gifts that you’re probably going to leave until the last minute, anyway.

The ghouls and dark terrors of Halloween are being replaced with happy candy canes and bright lights.

Now is also the time where kids in school are anticipating being closer to winter break.

There are festive things to look forward to that are happening in Vancouver, such as the Vancouver Christmas Market that starts on November 22 until December 24, 2014.

The Bright Nights Christmas Train in Stanley Park starts up on November 27, 2014 to January 4, 2015 and the Robson Square Ice Rink is opening again this year on December 1.

But is it too early to start looking forward to these events when it’s only the beginning of November?

When do you think is the right time to start getting ready for the winter holidays?
