As is the case with many homes and private businesses here, the city and federal governments put Christmas lights up this time of year.
At City Hall, I framed these two lit trees between flagpoles on the north lawn at dusk a couple of days ago. In the background, that streak of pink light at ground level is a skating rink, for those awaiting the Canal to freeze over.
Across the street, in Confederation Park, Christmas lights adorn trees in the park, mixing well with the snow... which seems to keep falling.
More lights in the park... and I don't believe I've shown this totem pole before. It's busy collecting snow at the moment.
On an earlier evening in the week, at the National War Memorial, the trees surrounding the monument are lit up for the Christmas season.
A straight on view of the Memorial with Christmas lights beyond makes for a dramatic image at night.
More Christmas lights tomorrow; I'll be showing you what Parliament Hill looks like at the moment.
