The Christmas Countdown is on!

Regardless of if you love the holidays or if you just tolerate them, there’s always lots going on in these next two months. What are you looking forward to most?

Our family and staff enjoy taking in the sights and sounds of the season. Here are a few things that we’re looking forward to:

Sleigh Rides: Nothing says Winter Wonderland than sleigh rides! Whether that’s experiencing Candy Cane Lane in the horse-drawn wagon, taking in the free (by donation) rides through Old Strathcona or exploring the old in the most authentic way possible with a sleigh ride in Fort Edmonton Park, this is an activity that can be enjoyed for all ages!

Christmas Lights: We love the atmosphere around Churchill Square during the official lighting of the tree and the All is Bright Festival on 124 Street has grown into a fun festival for both night and day. And of course, that trip to Candy Cane Lane is one of our favourite ways to take in all of the beautiful lights.

Snow: While we aren’t looking forward to shovelling and wiping down our windshields all winter, we do look forward to playing in the snow! If you didn’t make it to the Ice Castle last year, we definitely recommend that you discover this winter wonder this year. And with so many ski hills in Edmonton and area, there are so many opportunities to get outside and get down the hill on skis or on tubes!

Giving Spirit: All around Edmonton and area we see people and companies give their donations of both time and money to incredible charities. The spirit of the season is always strong and Dust Queen is proud to be part of it. We support several local charities including Win House, SPCA, Children’s Stollery Hospital, Ducks Unlimited and more. We appreciate the opportunity to give back to the communities that have supported us in the past 27 years.

We know that Christmas always seems to sneak up on us. Do you find yourself being pulled in too many directions attending Christmas functions, taking care of the holiday baking, finishing up the Christmas shopping AND wrapping, decorating for the holidays and more? Dust Queen can help you by taking care of the cleaning so you can take care of everything else. Or you can always use that extra time to just relax and make it the best day ever! If we can help you be your best this season, please give us a call to set up your free quote.
