Around Town: All Christmas, all the time

Pacific Theatre’s ‘A Christmas Carol,’ featuring Ron Reed, is one of dozens of timely offerings around Metro Vancouver.

There are a handful of exceptions, but almost all the events between now and December 25 are Advent- and Christmas-related. Not surprising, I suppose, but the volume and range is impressive.

So I think I’ll just highlight the list of events which usually follows the Around Town stories, and allow you to find something which appeals.
