Oh Christmas Tree!

We didn't get a chance before Christmas, but yesterday we went downtown and saw the Christmas Trees on display at The Empress Hotel. The trees are sponsored by various businesses and help to raise money for the BC Children's Hospital. I think there were about 60 or so trees tucked in the nooks and crannies of the grand hotel lobby and lower floor. Here are just a few of them.

  7. Thanks everyone. It was very fun and festive to wander around looking at all the trees. Makes me want to have a tree in our apartment in Japan next year. We'll see. Maybe a small one?

  10. The Four Seasons in downtown Vancouver does the same! The Festival of Trees right? It's neat to know that The Empress does the same thing!
