Greetings Vancouver readers and visitors!   It’s a dark, closed-in time of the year, but there are loads of spirit-lifting activities that are free or inexpensive, as we approach Christmas.

Here are a few:

1.  The Rogers Santa Clause Parade is this Sunday, 1pm  Cost: free

2.  The Vancouver Chamber Choir is presenting Handel’s Messiah Dec. 12th and 13th.  Lowest price tickets are $21, but if you care to take the chance, they can also be had at half-price the day of the concert, from TicketsTonite.

3.  Free Concert:  Pacific Baroque Orchestra’s  “Bach, Mozart and Friends”  dress reheasal at St. James Anglican Church Friday Dec. 18, 8pm (I need to confirm the time).

4.  Philosopher’s Cafe @Unitarian Centre “The Gifting Dilemma”  $5  I haven’t been to one of these in a while, but usually they are exceptionally interesting conversations and well worth the $5.

5.  And for you gingerbread house fans there’s always the Guinsess  Book of World Records Gingergread Lane at the Hyatt Regency.       (or you can do the Pivot Legal Society edition instead!)

Readers:  I know there’s tons more going on.  If you have something to add, please do!
