We all know that December is a time cherished by many!

It's a time of year when everyone walks around with a grin on their face and an extra skip in there step. It's hard not to get caught up in the holiday spirit. Heck, why try to resist? And, whether you spend December celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Kwanzaa, Festivus, Hogmanay, or simply anticipating New Years, Boxing Day, orNational Cookie Exchange Day (yep, it's a real thing), we think we can ALL agree on one thing: Holiday lights are awesome!

There are so many things we love about living in Kelowna, but around December, our favourite Kelowna attribute is the holiday spirit that embodies our community, and the vast amount of beautiful lights! The kids go crazy for them, and to be honest, so do we!

While there is an abundance of light ups around the Okanagan (Kelowna, Peachland, Westbank, Penticton), these require careful planning. Sometimes, on our day off, it's just nice to pack the kids in the car-- or just our sweethearts – and drive around looking at the amazing displays around town.

Well, we had the chance to do just that this week, and let us tell you. It's looking great out there!

We wouldn't want you to miss out on this festive activity, so The Dion-Ivan Real Estate Team put together a short list of our favourite 'lit up' neighbourhoods in Kelowna.

First, we travelled up to Black Mountain where the view of Kelowna is simply breathtaking. Now, let us tell you right away there are no shortage of lights in this popular Kelowna neighbourhood. In fact, it doesn't really matter what direction you drive in you are sure to see some beautifully decorated homes; however, you are going to want to pay special attention to Longley Cr, Wilmot, and Feedham!

After our Black Mountain adventure, we travelled down Springfield (also some nice displays) and up to Kettle Valley. We know! That is the complete opposite end of town, but we had leave the gem in Rutland till the end, and we know the folks of Kettle Valley never fail to impress. We were right! If the homes of this picturesque neighbourhood weren't enough to take a drive up for, the lights sure are! Much like Black Mountain, any direction will take you to some beautiful holiday light displays. Simply head up Chute Lake Rd, and enjoy the sites! Our favourite roads to travel down were Ptarmigan, Providence, Quilchena, Tulameen, and McCaren.

It was getting late, so we knew it was time to head back to Rutland for the icing on the cake. However, before we explored the best of the best, we discovered some awesome decorated houses on Hollydell and Dundee; be sure to check them out! Then we headed on down to Candy Cane Lane! So far, Candy Cane Lane is the crown jewel of Christmas and Holiday Lights in Kelowna. Originally consisting of Gramiak and Collison, it has expanded yearly to include Elwyn Rd, Mary Ct, Rex Rd, and Taylor Rd. It is breathtaking! Every year gets better and better, and let me tell you, these Kelowna homeowners do an incredible job, and we are truly thankful for them! When you visit Candy Cane Lane (an you really must visit!), be sure to bring a non perishable donation for the Kelowna Women's Shelter!

As much as we wish we did, The Dion-Ivans Real Estate Team didn't have the time to explore all of Kelowna, or even touch the rest of the Okanagan, but we know there are some spenders still to see!

Do you have a favourite holiday street in the Okanagan? Don't keep it to yourself! Let us and the others know.

The Bank of Canada maintained its overnight rate at 0.25 per cent this morning, a level it considers its effective lower bound. The Bank is also continuing its quantitative easing (QE) program, purchasing at least $4 billion of Government of Canada bonds per week and re-affirmed its forward guidance on future interests moves, committing to holding the policy rate at 0.25 per cent until slack in the economy is absorbed and inflation is sustainably trending at 2 per cent.   In the statement accompanying the decision, the Bank noted that the recovery underway will be choppy due to rising cases of COVID-19 and will continue to require extraordinary monetary support from the bank.

Current slack in the economy, along with low energy prices, is holding Canadian inflation well below its target of 2 per cent. Total CPI inflation is trending under 1 per cent while the Bank of Canada’s measures of “core” inflation remain below target despite the massive expansion of the Bank’s balance sheet necessary to facilitate its quantitative easing program. With the arrival of viable vaccines, we may see the Canadian economic recovery materially accelerate in the second half of 2021. If that occurs, the first stage of tighter monetary policy from the Bank will be how and when it decides to taper purchases of government bonds over the next year. As it does,  we may start to see a divergence in variable and fixed rates by early summer as bond yields rise and fixed mortgage rates move marginally higher.
