bright lights, big city

Like the song, it sure is Christmas time in this city and Vancouver is actually a really nice place to be this time of year. People huddle together in a few places (shopping on Robson Street, visiting the light displays at parks and gardens, the local coffee shop or out with friends at favorite winter time restaurant) and much of the rest of town empties out. I’m not sure if this is because it’s a pretty transient city so many return home, or maybe we are all just staying indoors unless heading to a friend’s lunch or office party. What do I like best? Balconies on condo buildings showing off the varied taste in lights of each tenant. Seeing people carrying trays of cookies or a side dish getting buzzed into their friend’s apartment. Cute displays in shop windows. The tiny hope everyone holds that this might be the year for snow.
