I know it’s hard to believe that Christmas is just around the corner, especially since we just got the kids back to school. Just take a walk through your local Costco and you will see Christmas goods right over by the meat section. At Costco if you don’t pick something up the first time you see it, it will be gone the next time you go. Same goes with certain special events at Christmas time. Tickets for sign up only Christmas events are already on sale (or are really soon) and you don’t want to miss out so I have a attached a list of some of the Christmas favourites for you.
