It’s happening! The holiday season is upon us. Time to deck the halls, jingle some bells, and rock around the Christmas tree!
There’s loads of holiday fun in store in both of our local neighbourhoods. We hope you’ll take some time to enjoy some holiday cheer with family and friends.
If you’re visiting our Victoria location, you’ll definitely want to take some time to stroll through charming Estevan Village. A hot cup of cocoa on a blustery day will be just what you need to warm your hands, and your heart as you take in the sights and discover hidden holiday delights around each corner.
Sidney’s festive season begins with the Holiday Open House and the launch of the popular Passport to the North Pole contest, on Friday November 29 from 5-8pm, followed on Saturday November 30 by the Sidney Sparkles Santa Claus Parade and the Lighted Sailpast Boat Parade, beginning at 5pm. There’s also the Festival of Trees at the Mary Winspear Centre, photos with Santa and by-donation gift wrapping at The Sidney Pier Hotel, as well as a special exhibit of Teddy Bears at the Sidney Museum. Check the Distinctly Sidney Events Calendar to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
Of course a big part of the Christmas magic is found in the faces of our little loved ones as they discover treasures wrapped under the tree on Christmas morning. But don’t let the pressure for the perfect present stress you out. If there’s one thing our staff knows, it’s toys! Our shelves are stocked and we’re here to help you pick out just the right thing.
And if you need a few suggestions? We have those too! Neighbourhood Toy Stores of Canada recently announced its 2013 Gold Star award winning toys. Each year the retail members of Neighbourhood Toy Stores of Canada (NETS) put their heads together to determine which products most deserve to be recognized with a ‘Gold Star’. This year’s winners include a great selection of Games & Puzzles, Active Play, Construction, Imagination, and Science & Nature toys. They’re all in stock at Buddies Toys!
Most importantly, during this busy time of year, the staff at Buddies Toys wish you and your family a peaceful, joy-filled Christmas. It has been our pleasure to be part of your lives in 2013, and we look forward to sharing in your special moments in the year ahead. Merry Christmas!
