I visited Burnaby Village Museum Heritage Christmas earlier this week, as the lights began to twinkle at twilight. The beautiful lakeside setting, bordered by a babbling brook, is truly magical. I strolled down the village streets under the 1920s style lights and cedar boughs, past buildings adorned with wreaths sporting big red bows.
