Embassy/Marriott series.


1) "There's a tree in the grand hotel"





2) "Two by the door as well"





3) And this wreath is "the sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow"!





(Photos 1 and 2 are from the Embassy Suites. Photo 3 is from the Marriott.)

5) And a smaller one down their front hall.




6) Nice wall lamp decoration.
(Sorry about the glare.)

The setup for the Barenaked Ladies Hits and Holiday Songs concert!:


The inside of the National Arts Centre... I couldn't take many photos. As you can tell, it was packed!:

Another visit to Tinseltown brightened my Christmas Season. The store was packed wall-to-wall with new Christmas decorations and people!:



Santa is always watching:

More Santas!:


I played 'where is the giant Santa Claus' for about 10 minutes. I found it after a few minutes:

Railings and walls.


1) Local neighborhood makes it clear they recognize the Season.





2) Another shot of a longer wall section in the same area.





3) Ooo! Just look at that railing!
(Have I mentioned I have a passion for Christmas-decorated iron railing?)

Continuing.


4) Local restaurant lures me with their railing decorations.




5) Closer, angled view.
Would love to have a sandwich out there -- if it wasn't too cold!

You're welcome, Crown. Glad I can show that Christmas is in full bloom in Ottawa!

Also, thank you for your photos, too, Crown. They look beautiful, as always. I wish we had more wreaths and railings here.

1) Ah! A nice wreath on a brick wall against a clear blue sky!
(This and the following were taken at a local strip mall near where we live.)




2) Shopping center sign in the Christmas spirit!





(OK, Folks. All my photos are posted except for my final night shot series which I plan to place here on Christmas Eve.
Not many more days left to post. Get those photos uploaded, Guys!)
