It feels like it was only yesterday that you packed away the bikini, and now here you are ready to bring out the reindeer sweater and settle in for your annual viewing of “Love Actually.” The holiday season is almost upon us, and as much as we love Christmas Day itself (or insert other religious holiday here as required), we love the lead-up to Christmas in Vancouver just as much.

A month of drinking eggnog would be enough to get the team here at The Burrard Hotel all merry and bright, but occasionally we like to leave the house in that reindeer sweater. Luckily, Vancouver is a pretty fun place to be during the holiday season, and whether you’re a visitor or a local, there’s a lot to put you in the Christmas spirit. Here are a few of our favourite ways to celebrate Christmas in Vancouver.

Oh, how we love autumn! There’s just something about retreating to your most forgiving chunky sweater after a summer of over-indulging, and swapping gin-based cocktails for bourbon-based ones. Oh, you were expecting us to say something about the fall air and leaves changing colour? Sorry, are you new here? Whatever turns your crank, there are plenty of awesome things to do in Vancouver in October, from stuffing your face right through to getting the stuffing scared out of you.
