Christmas Comes Early with The Magic of Santa!

It's December & the holiday season is already in full swing. Have you started shopping yet? I've got a suggestion: rather than adding to the mountain of toys that your kids probably already have, what about getting them experience-based gifts instead? You'll be making some great memories together & it'll mean one or two fewer things to pick up off the floor, right?

Here's a great gift idea for your whole family: get them tickets to The Magic of Santa! at the Pacific Coliseum, December 21 to December 23.

The show is a family-friendly musical, complete with dancing Christmas trees, rockin’ reindeer, a singing snow queen & jovial Santa. We saw the same production company's Hallowe'en show, The Great Big Boo! back in October & we're really looking forward to seeing The Magic of Santa! too. Kids from toddlers up will enjoy the show & I think you will too.

The story follows Emily on an enchanted journey as she searches for her very own Christmas wish! With help from Rudy, Mrs. Claus, Skitter the Mouse & other big fuzzy characters, Emily will discover the wonders of Santa’s magic. With larger-than-life characters, original music & dynamic production numbers, The Magic of Santa! is a present for the entire family.

The Magic of Santa! is showing at the Pacific Coliseum Friday, December 21 at 7pm; Saturday, December 22 at 1pm, 4pm & 7pm; Sunday, December 23 at 1pm & 4pm. Tickets are $22.50 plus service charges & can be purchased at

Nothing says “best gift ever” like a caribou!
Starting at just $40, Gifts of Canadian Nature help protect habitat for Canada’s native wildlife. A Gift of Canadian Nature lasts for years to come and is a gift that gives thrice! Once to the recipient with a personalized certificate and a beautiful calendar, once to the giver with a charitable tax receipt, and once to Canadian wildlife. This year we are featuring the snowy owl, the grizzly bear, the caribou, the gray fox and the Canada lynx. Click the image or follow this link for more information.


  1. I like the idea of experience-based gifts. My kids get bored of their news toys so quickly anyway, so this could be a better alternative choice. I'm sure they would enjoy a musical Christmas show like this!

    1. Not to mention that experience-based gifts don't need dusting, or new batteries or space to store them. ;)

      We saw the Hallowe'en show by the same company & it was really well-paced for little kids--my two-year-old enjoyed it. We're looking forward to this one too! Maybe we'll see you there? :)
