This year, I started with the Christmas Parade. The following weekend, Other Auntie and I went to the annual Christmas craft fair at Dalplex. Dalplex is Dalhousie's gym facility. The last time I was inside was 2005, and I was writing an exam. I can't remember which exam. I can't even remember what I took my last term at Dal. Anyway, I was worried I'd suffer location-induced exam stress just from being there, but that didn't happen. After the fair, we met the kids and their parents for the Citadel's Victorian Christmas. I'd never done the Victorian Christmas, and while it's geared more towards kids, I want to go back again next year. I like historical re-creations, especially ones that involve cider and bayonets. Also, the Citadel is a great location, and offers great views of the city.
I don't know if everyone else is in the Christmas spirit yet, so to help you along I'll first recommend the genius Christmas episode of Community that aired this week (Community freaking rocks. If you're looking for a Christmas present for yourself, get the first two seasons on DVD). Secondly, I'll point you to the videos below which come from my most favourite Christmas Special ever. Seriously, my little heart broke when they stopped airing this on TV.
