Very Vancouver Christmas Song Part 2

On the Coast needs your help to write a Vancouver Christmas Song. The song will be sung by Vancouver musician Dan Mangan. Music by CBC music producer Jon Siddall. Lyrics by you, the listeners of On the Coast.

You've already helped us write the first part. Here's how the song begins:

It's Christmas in Vancouver
No snow flakes falling down
Instead the Christmas lights reflect
Off puddles on the ground

It's Christmas in Vancouver
no need for tire chains
Just keep your fleece and spandex on
Eggnog [latte] in your veins

Thanks to Allison Schein of Nanaimo, and Glen Anderson of Richmond, who co-wrote the first 8 lines of the song.

Now, we need your help for the next section of the song. Please listen below for more information, and send your verses to
