Holiday season is upon us, and that means smiling faces, bright baubles and twinkling lights. And Christmas music. Any artist worth their gumdrops has recorded a Christmas album. There are so many songs to choose from, it can be hard to decide what to listen to. Well, not to worry, the Watermark team has a perfect lineup for the holidays this year. We’ve curated a festive soundtrack to make your South Okanagan holiday vacation something worth singing about! Mistletoe and Holly Oh, by gosh, by golly, Watermark’s well-appointed suites are perfectly designed for a heartwarming holiday! Cozy up by your own fireplace, and make the most of that mistletoe. Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire Prepare your favourite holiday feast In your own fully-equipped kitchen, or let our talented chefs at the Restaurant at Watermark take care of things with our Take the Turkey Home special. Joy to the World We know it can be hard to be away from loved ones during the holidays (even when you’re thoroughly enjoying your vacation!). Watermark offers free wi-fi throughout the resort and in each suite, so you can connect with your family and friends, no matter where in the world they might be. Baby, it’s Cold Outside Warm up and stretch those wintry muscles in a yoga class at Watermark’s Breathe Studio or in the steamy outdoor hot tub, or give yourself the gift of pampering at the Levia Spa. Go Tell It on the Mountain Baldy Mountain Resort offers the perfect combination of phenomenal snow and Okanagan sunshine! The region’s most affordable ski area lies only 45 minutes from the Watermark beach; with our Ski & Stay package, there’s plenty of reason to head to the hill this season. Winter Wonderland Explore the gorgeous winter playground around Osoyoos! In the lane, snow is glistening: head out on snowshoes or horseback to the region’s many trails, or lace up your skates and enjoy the ice at the Osoyoos Sun Bowl or the Oliver Arena. O, Tannenbaum BC grows great trees! It makes sense, then, that we’re pretty good at decorating them, too. Explore the region’s creativity with the Oliver-Osoyoos Winery Association’s Festival of Trees. Through January 5th, four local wineries are showcasing these community-supported displays, uniquely and beautifully dressed for the holiday season. While this event is free of charge, any donations benefit the services at BC Children’s Hospital and the South Okanagan Children’s Charity, truly a meaningful gift. Holly, Jolly Christmas Things are getting festively funny around here. Catch some Christmas comedy with live performances of Christmas Unplugged, at the Oliver Alliance Church, and O Christmas Tea at the Frank Venables Theatre. Light up the night with a laugh! December in the South Okanagan offers plenty to smile about. Wonderful Christmastime No matter what you choose to listen to, you’ll find plenty of merry and bright when you spend your holidays with your family here in the South Okanagan. At Watermark, all we want for Christmas is you! Contact us to book your winter holidays.
