I have visited Butchart Gardens during the summer a couple of times. Coming from Mexico, I was pretty amazed when I looked at all the colored flowers and it made me remember Victoria for its beautiful attraction.
But visiting the gardens during Christmas is a whole new experience. It is a completely different thing from what I had seen during my summers visiting Canada. It really gives that homey Christmas feeling and visiting with friends and family, like I did, makes it even more fun and enjoyable.
Lights and Christmas decorations fill the gardens everywhere in a very creative way. It really is a “you had to be there” thing, so if you have the chance, get your family and friends together and get ready to have a great time in the lit up gardens.
