I took these shots in the Rideau Centre mall downtown. Their Santa Claus photo operation is set up on the pedestrian bridge connecting the mall to the Hudson's Bay store across Rideau Street. The decorations inside the mall this year seem to be new- large glowing ornament balls hang from skylights in multiple locations.
Over on Sparks Street, these snowmen sculptures can be found on the pedestrian mall.
And this Christmas wreath can be found up the street at the pub D'Arcy McGee's.
These signs are hanging in the Aberdeen Pavilion at Lansdowne, a reminder that our big anniversary year as a country is coming, and this place will see the old year out with a Scottish style New Year's Eve bash.
