A Busy Victoria Christmas

posted on Dec 23

When I was a little boy, Christmas was so exciting. I can remember going out with friends and family to sing Christmas carols on star-filled nights when I could see my breath in the air.  I hope that the magic of Christmas will never be forgotten and I feel that we are so fortunate to be living in a city like Victoria, BC where the magic is still alive during the Holiday Season.

You can feel Christmas in the air when shopping in the hundreds of unique shops and services that abound in the downtown core and you can smell it in the heady smells of espresso and the scents of citrus, pine and cinammon that waft from the cafes and restaurants, filling your senses with memories of childhood days and you can see it in the sparkle of the hundreds of Christmas lights that cover the trees and storefronte everywhere. 

Christmas in Victoria is unlike any other city in which I've been, and many others must think so too, as all of our downtown Vacation Rental Apartments are solidly booked over the Christmas Holiday season. Our Snowbird season, which starts on January 1st is almost completely sold out too, so if you're planning a visit to Victoria in 2013 please contact us soon to ensure your booking.


In the meantime, may we say a very "Merry Christmas" to all our resident guests and to the many guests whom we have not yet met. We wish you all a peaceful and prosperous 2013 and hope that the troubles that have faced us all during the past days, months and years, will quickly fade awat in the sunshine of happier times ahead.
