The calendar flips over to December on Thursday as the holiday season gets into high gear. Festive events are coming up in both Ladner (including the carol ships, tree lighting, children's parade and Breakfast with Santa) and Tsawwassen (Wake Up Santa and Courtyard Christmas) this weekend to help locals get into the Christmas spirit. The Optimist asked:
Dorothy Hamilton My grandchildren. They get so excited about Christmas. I love Christmas - the music, everything about it, everybody seems to be happy.
Julia Young Christmas movies and Christmas carols.
Rob Orrick Walking around and seeing windows painted and walking into stores and hearing Christmas songs.
Brenda Brunett God. He's the reason for the season.
Brian Twaites Being with family and close friends.
