It is December 1st today which means that in my household, the Christmas season has officially begun. The Advent Calendar has started counting down, the Christmas tree is up, and festive baking is in progress.
The City of Langley is also getting into the Christmas spirit. If you go around Downtown, you’ll see Christmas lights wrapped around street trees and decorations on street lights. This Saturday, the City is kicking off the countdown to Christmas with two family-friendly events.

At Douglas Recreation Centre this Saturday, you can have Breakfast with Santa between 9:00am and 11:00am. There will be crafts, painting, and breakfast, plus a visit from Santa. Tickets are $10, and children under 3 can attend for free.
Later in the afternoon, come and celebrate the Magic of Christmas. Starting at 4:00pm in McBurney Plaza, check out crafts and live entertainment. At 6:00pm, see the Christmas parade which runs from 56 Avenue to 207 Street. Afterwards, come see the Christmas tree in McBurney Plaza be officially lite at 7pm, and join or listen to caroling in the plaza.
