‘Tis the season for family traditions. Whether your family enjoys baking together, decorating the house and Christmas tree, or just snuggling in with a few favourite seasonal movies – the time to do it is coming up. We’re very fortunate in British Columbia to have so many options to help us enjoy the season. You can get up the mountains if you want to play in the snow – Cyprus Mountain is now open. Or you can attend one of the City’s magical events. Here are 4 of our favourites family traditions.
