Tis the season – since 1973, the Circle Craft Co-op has been holding a Christmas market.

Come down next weekend to celebrate its 41st anniversary season.
Kids will really enjoy decorating cookies with Mrs. Claus at Glenda’s Christmas Cottage in Abbotsford. In addition to cookie decorating, there will be other crafts, hot chocolate, snacks and even a visit from Santa. Admission is free, but please be sure to bring a donation for “Matthew’s House”, a children’s hospice in town.
Get to learn about a different culture at the Norse Winter Festival, taking place at the Surrey Museum. There will be Viking re-enactors from the Reik Felag group inviting guests to a colorfully re-created Midwinter feast hall. The Saint Lucia choir will entertain as children create crafts to take home.
