Christmas Lights And Wreaths

This Christmas sleigh can be found outside one of the hotels downtown.

There are also Christmas lights on Parliament Hill at the moment.

This Christmas tree is in the Ottawa Convention Centre.

While this wreath is hanging outside the main entrance at the American embassy.

And this is one of the Christmas wreaths hanging on the fence at the Royal Canadian Mint.


  1. Nice holiday scenes! Have a wonderful Christmas!

  2. I see that well celebrate Christmas everywhere. That's very good. Again, William, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.


  3. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
    Love seeing the decorations.


  4. Beautiful. The night lights is best. Merry Christmas to you!

  5. That is a quite a fantastic tree. That wreath around the American Eagle is pretty cool too.

  6. Those are such beautiful Christmas decorations! I love the tree at Ottawa Convention Centre. It looks very pretty!
    I wish you a wonderful Christmas holiday!!

  7. That Christmas tree looks so large and solid. I think it is the unusual use of white that gives this solid impression. And lovely lights.

  8. What a beautiful Christmas tree. It has taken a lots of hours before it was ready.
    Merry Christmas to you.

  9. Beautiful Post !

    Merry Christmas.
    cheers, gayle and thehamish

  10. Lots of cool holiday decorations. I really do like that Christmas Tree at the Convention Center!

  11. @Whisk: thanks!

    @Linda: thank you!

    @Tomas: thank you!

    @Marianne: in a good many places, yes.

    @Linda: thanks!

    @VP: I thought so too.

    @Janis: now if only we had the snow!

    @Karl: thank you!

    @Nancy: thanks!

  12. @Norma: and to you!

    @Sharon: that's what drew me to that wreath. The embassy had wreaths along the fence, but this mounted on the eagle really caught my attention.

    @Tamago: thank you!

    @Marianne: I thought whoever put it up did a good job.

    @Gemma: it works well within that space, I think.

    @Tex: I thought you might! This is the first time I've featured the Mint, but the second time I've photographed it for the blog. I'll have another post after the New Year.

    @Orvokki: I do think it probably took a good part of a day to put that tree up.

    @Parsnip: thank you!

    @Lowell: I really do too.

  13. Kind of funny--so many ribbons on the embassy's emblem and the eagle eating ribbon. May be nesting. :-)

  14. I do like that Christmas tree, very neat...

  15. Good photo theme for this time of year.

  16. Love it. Any time lights and decorations are use to make the mundane look new, magical and even spectacular, I love to look at them. Thanks for sharing, William!

  17. The lights and the Christmas trees are striking.

  18. gorgeous wreaths, i love the tree. that is gigantic! ( :

  19. @Revrunner: I'll have to photograph the seal again sometime when the wreath isn't there!

    @Geoff: thanks!

    @Red: thank you!

    @Lorelei: you're welcome.

    @Mari: I quite agree.

    @Beth: it is big, and in a very big space!

  20. All is looking very festive and colorful and all that's missing is a bit of snow at least that is the case here in NH. Merry Christmas to you!

  21. Fine looking lights! Merry Christmas!

  22. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I hope you're enjoying your holiday season.

  23. Just haven't had time to get accustomed to the idea that it's Christmas... I'm still stuck somewhere in October I think! This is lovely!

  24. Nice shots of alle the Christmas decorations. The Christmas tree is a true beauty.

  25. Nice to see the decorations in Ottawa!

  26. @Beatrice: thank you!

    @Chieftess: thanks!

    @Linda: and more to come.

    @Kay: we need the snow!

    @Ciel: where has the year gone?

    @Jan: I thought so too.

    @EG: thanks!
