One of my favourite things to do at Christmas is look at all the houses lit up. When I moved to Edmonton three years ago I kept hearing about a place called Candy Cane Lane and have been visiting every year. Usually it’s so cold out that I can’t walk the whole street because I literally feel like my legs are going to fall off. But this year it has been a beautiful winter and I got to take a leisurely stroll looking at everything. Here are some photos and a video of my favourite displays from this year:
On Sunday I went to both the Royal Bison Craft Show and the Butterdome Craft Show. The Royal Bison show was really small but it was filled with local vendors selling home-made products. It had a very hipster feel too it which is not really my scene. The only product there which I considered buying were some socks, but I already have too many of them.
Then it was on to the Butterdome. That craft show was huge. It was also packed with people which made it a little difficult to walk around, but it wasn’t too bad. They had quite a variety of products which were also local (or at least Canadian). But I found the prices were too high for what I would have wanted to spend.
All in all, we had fun walking around, but came home empty-handed.
