The Vancouver Aquarium Is Transforming Into An Enchanted Underwater Christmas Paradise This Winter

A scuba diving Santa Claus?

You've had breakfast with Santa at The Peak of Christmas, you've strolled through Gingerbread Lane and Candy Lane at Van Dusen Gardens, you've even gotten a little too tipsy on glüwhein at the Vancouver Christmas Market (no shame), but have you ever seen an underwater scuba diving Santa Claus or a Christmas tree that's completely powered by electric eels? Didn't think so.

This holiday season, the Vancouver Aquarium is bringing back their underwater Christmas paradise from November 24 to January 7. Not only will the entire aquarium be decked out in Christmas decorations, you'll get to watch "Scuba Claus" swimming with the fishes...
