Only four more weeks until December and until Christmas cheer is in full-throttle. The wait for Christmas may feel a little longer, but the holiday vibes definitely will not because, on December 1st, Vancouver's favourite magical Christmas themed garden with over a million twinkling lights is back.

Returning to VanDusen Botanical Garden next month is their annual winter wonderland, the Festival Of Lights. Every year, VanDusen's 15-acre garden is decked out in vibrant Christmas lights that blanket the winter foliage.

Visitors can stroll through the colourfully lit garden pathways, like the Gingerbread Walk and Candy Cane Lane. There's even a festive merry-go-round, a dancing light show on the lake, and tons of food vendors to keep you warm. Last year, even the Eiffel Tower made a visit to the gardens.
