Holiday Happenings

The festive season is just over a month away and  the holiday parties have begun.  Decorations are in full swing and our holiday events are filling up.  I bought egg nog last week – the first indicator for me that Christmas is around the corner however it seems like preparations begin earlier each year.  The Parade of Lights, Halifax’s annual Santa Clause Parade is on Saturday night, downtown at 6 pm, details at www.halifax.ca.   The last time I went to the Parade of Lights is rained so hard we thought the bearded man on the last float would be Noah, literally floating down Barrington Street!  Saturday’s forecast is calling for 4C and mixed precipitation so fingers crossed for a dry evening.

I am planning to get in the festive spirit this evening by visiting the Nova Scotia Designer Craft Council’s Christmas Designer Craft Show at the Cunard Event Centre,  http://www.nsdcc.ns.ca/main/Christmas_market.html.  The show is on all weekend and in my opinion is one of the best of the holiday season.
