I don’t really know what to expect after my first poinsettia experience but the way Dr. Isitt was philosophizing like a stackable Santa Claus.

A few shots from Butchart Gardens last night. Always enjoy this time as it reminds me of my late dad who loved Christmas; heading out to the garden's became something of a tradition for us especially when our daughter was younger and it was a big deal for her. One of the last things we did with the entire family, local and extended, when he was still with us was a "Butchart's Christmas" in 2011. For me in many ways it is the official kickoff to the yuletide season.

Just a heads up for some of you using Spotify to stream Christmas music over the loudspeakers at your workplace: their playlist of traditional standards includes Eazy E's Christmas hit Merry Muthaphuckkin' Xmas.

As long as Spotify isn't playing something truly offensive like Baby It's Cold Outside.

Thing is, a couple weeks ago we had an old phone hooked up to Spotify but a shoplifter stole it.

 

So we had to go back to playing Christmas CDs. But they're old and scratched and it would skip and play the first 30 seconds of Baby It's Cold Outside over and over for a couple of hours until someone noticed.

Sure you didn't accidentally set it to Hip Hop Christmas?
