Christmas is my favourite time of the year and nothing marks the start of the holidays better then when I look outside my window and start seeing the bus ads for the Circle Craft Christmas Market. Taking place from Wednesday, November 7th to Sunday, November 11th, 2012 at the Vancouver Convention Centre West, the Circle Craft Christmas Market is celebrating their 39th annual show and we are inviting you to win a pair of tickets (see below) to join the celebrations!
