Wow, it’s the weekend again! As you may know, this weekend is American Thanksgiving so there are many stores offering discounts on their merchandise in the United States and here in Vancouver. But, there is more than shopping going on this weekend! Because it’s so close to December, lots of Christmas and winter festivities are starting to happen. We have found plenty of things for you to do so listen up!
Whether you want to prove that you can win alone or team up with people and come up with a strategic plan, this will be one of the most fun times you’ll ever have! So safe up your energy and come ready to see some live action on Sunday!

VANCOUVER CHRISTMAS MARKET
For all you Germans out there, this will hopefully cure your homesickness! The plaza at Queen Elizabeth Theatre is transformed into a romantic tiny village with rows of little wooden huts decorated in pine branches and festive lights. You don’t want to miss the live entertainment, carousel rides and shops selling handmade gifts!
The best part is probably all the European food and drinks including German Bratwurst, Swiss Raclette, Lebkuchen, baked apples, spiced Christmas Cake (Stollen), the famous German Christmas Drink (Feuerzangenbowle), authentic hot spiced red wine (Gluehwein) and a selection of German beers (Weissbier).
I went last year (and will go this year again) and for sure would recommend everyone to take a visit!

I know many of you are football (American football in a Canadian league, not soccer/England football – yes confusing, I know) fans out there. Though the Vancouver Lions lost last week in the Conference Final, you sports nuts will want to watch the Calgary Stampeders battle against Toronto Argonauts.
The “Grey Cup” is the championship game in the Canadian Football League (CFL) and is the name of the trophy given out to the winners. It’s the 100th anniversary of the league so this is a must watch event!
