Christmas In Vancouver Glen Foster/Marty Steele Verse 1 Christmas in Vancouver can be so many things Coloured lights of red and green on city streets so bright Many different faces, favourite songs that people sing All meeting friends and sharing joyful greetings in the night Verse 2 Christmas in Vancouver can be warm or freezing cold You bundle up for rain or snow on those December days Smiles on happy faces warm your heart and calm the soul Seasons greetings here resound in so many different ways Bridge Everyone’s together in our city on the coast Sharing joy and caring for each other where we live The Christmas spirit glows in busy stores and friendly homes And grows with every smile and loving present that we give Verse 3 Christmas in Vancouver can mean so many things Family and friends we love, traditions we re-live But not every heart is happy And not every home is bright Christmas is a time to share, the perfect time to give Refrain Christmas in Vancouver, Christmas in Vancouver, Christmas in Vancouver Christmas in Vancouver, the city that we love Christmas in Vancouver, we’re coming home to you
The Spirit Of Christmas The Spirit of Christmas is with us again The candles are lit and the fire’s been fed Stockings are hung and the bows have been tied With ribbons of green and red They’re waiting for Santa to bring them some toys They listen for sleigh bells, they don’t make a noise Their prayers have been said and they’re tucked into bed They’re dreaming in green and red Chorus: Christmas day will soon be here Then it’s all gone for another year With holly berry red and ivy green We wish you merry Christmas cheer Now snowflakes are falling, there’s ice in the air He calls to his reindeer all prancing in pairs They light on the roof top with never a sound And Santa steps out of his sleigh Down through the chimney and onto the floor He fills up their stockings with presents galore Then off through the night on his merry old way In the spirit of Christmas day Christmas day will soon be here Then it’s all gone for another year May peace be on earth as the day draws near We wish you merry Christmas cheer We wish you merry Christmas
Christmas Time’s A-Comin’ - Tex Logan Chorus: Christmas Time’s A-Comin’ And I know I’m goin’ home Verse: Snowflakes falling My old home’s calling Tall pines humming Christmas Time’s A-Comin’ Refrain: Can’t you hear those bells ringing, ringing Joy to all hear them singing When it’s snowing I’ll be going Back to my country home Verse: Holly’s in the window Home’s where the wind blows Can’t walk, running Christmas Time’s A-Comin’
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh


Christmas In Vancouver is the new single release from the album in 2021. The Spirit of Christmas (song) and The Twelve Guitars of Christmas were originally released on a Red Vinyl 45 rpm record in 1986 to great success. The 9 other 'cover' songs were recorded in early 2021 and are mostly guitar instrumentals, with minimal vocals. Performed by Glen Foster on various guitars, they are original arrangements of traditional holiday standards.
