Over the last ten years, it’s become tradition for John and I to have a date night at the Vancouver Christmas Market. He meets me after work and we immediately get some gluhwine to warm our hands while we shop for ornaments and gifts. Then have a schnitzel dinner under the lights while listening to a live band, it’s a pretty magical time to be in the city.
