St. Paul's Hospital Lights of Hope and Vancouver Christmas Market

We're donors to St. Paul's Hospital; this evening is the lighting and first day of Lights of Hope. In 2018, we also visited the display, and I wrote about hope, which you can read here . We're apparently big enough donors to get invited to a Donor Celebration Reception an hour before the lighting. So right after work (5:00 PM), we hurriedly took an Uber to Sheraton Wall Centre for the reception. There's free food, booze, and desserts - MANY desserts (all sorts of cookies, mini cupcakes, mini cake rolls, mousse, and, did I already say cookies?). Inside the Constellation Suite at the Sheraton Wall Centre on the 34th floor After the short program, we went downstairs to find a decent spot for the Lights of Hope lighting.

Vancouver Christmas Market 2022

My husband and I did a crazy thing and purchased a Seasons Pass for the Vancouver Christmas Market 2022. This means we can visit as many times as we want! Of course, we were there an hour before opening on the first day. We love the food, lights, and live music in the market. Below are some pictures of the market. Unfortunately, there are some areas where I didn't take good pictures, so when we come back, I'll do my best to take better ones.
