    On Christmas day there isn't a great deal open. You can, in any case, go to the Movie Theaters on that day however. Be that as it may, the city is perfectly lit up in twinkling lights and on the off chance that you are here before Christmas, you can do the Christmas Train ride in Stanley Park or go to Capilano Suspension Bridge and it to is altogether lit up in its Christmas best.
