Giveaway: Tickets to the Edmonton Singing Christmas Tree!

The Edmonton Singing Christmas Tree is an annual holiday tradition that helps Edmontonians in need!
The Edmonton Singing Christmas Tree runs Dec. 19-22 and is an annual holiday tradition that helps Edmontonians in need!

Imagine a 35-foot Christmas tree on stage complete with ornaments, lights, and… 150 singers, accompanied by a live orchestra! This is the first thing you think of when you hear The Singing Christmas Tree. It’s our city’s most spectacular Christmas show, a heartwarming, annual tradition for thousands of families.


From the website: Every year, The Edmonton Singing Christmas Tree Foundation donates all net proceeds to local charities, organizations and children in need. In addition to working with established local and global non-profits, the Foundation also supports individual causes throughout the City as a way of bringing Christmas year round to children in need through gifts, food and music education.

This year’s show runs Dec. 19-22.

I attended the show for the first time last year and was truly blown away. These singers are so talented. The stories are so inspirational. It’s incredibly festive and you get warm fuzzies knowing you’re supporting fantastic causes helping those in need (this year proceeds from the show go to support Santa’s Anonymous and the Christmas Bureau).

So let’s make the Singing Christmas Tree a part of your holiday tradition! I’m so happy to help spread the word about this fantastic event – I’m giving away two pairs of tickets for opening night!

    One of my favourite holiday traditions with the fam jam is opening presents at 11:30PM on Christmas Day. It prolongs the excitement of opening presents THAT much more…
    Plus we can’t really open any earlier because we have a birthday to celebrate on Christmas Eve so…can’t really steal their thunder! lol

    Decorating the tree and the memories that are behind our ornaments

  • Alexandra

    My favourite Christmas tradition is going to see the Nutcracker with my mom

  • Chelsea Boucher

    My favorite holiday tradition revolves around the Signing Christmas Tree. My mother and I attend every year! It is our special way to enjoy the holidays :) The music is always so amazing and every year there is something new and exciting!

  • Sarah Rockwood

    My best holiday tradition was opening my pyjamas the night before Christmas so that I slerp warm and cozy

  • Aura

    Our Christmas eve family’s traditions are to attend church’s service; have our traditional cultural ethnic dinner; then reflect on the blessings we receive throughout the year and close in prayer. Just before midnight, we cut a cake on behalf of my dad’s birthday (time when he was born). My dad lives overseas, and this gives our family an opportunity to feel close to him. My son loves opening some presents right after before he goes to sleep.

  • Laura

    One of our favorite holiday traditions is going out to chop down our Christmas tree. Such fun! My twitter is @orgjunkie

  • Suzanne Dennis

    my fav holiday tradition is centered around FOOD & DRINK – no surprise there!
    every christmas morn – my sissy, my neice, and nephew fill up on:

    monkey bread
    schwartzies potatoes
    christmas morning wifesaver
    and vats of boozy coffee!!

    not an healthful food in sight, but wouldnt be christmas without this little feast

    Mimosa’s in bed on Christmas Morning while opening our Christmas stockings. Although it’s a tradition we started shortly after we became adults, it’s still an awesome one.

  • Peggy Doyle

    One of my favourite traditions is when my husband reads ’twas the night before Christmas’ to me on Christmas Eve. My mom used to do it when we were kids and when he found out I missed it, he started doing it. :)

  • Heather Harder

    Because we have no family around, we started a Boxing Day bash for all of the friends we have made since we moved to Alberta What started as an appetizer and wine evening for a few people has grown into a full blown party all night long extravaganza. When we thought maybe we would go away for Christmas this year the look of horror and the “you aren’t doing Boxing Day ??!'”comments were enough to convince us to cherish the tradition and be home with our new family of friends.

  • Chelsey

    My favourite holiday tradition is making candy cane martinis and singing around the piano with my family, including my cousin who usually sings as part of the tree at the Edmonton Singing Christmas Tree!

  • Kianna

    My favourite Christmas tradition is driving around with my grandma on Christmas Eve to look at all the Christmas lights!

  • Karina Hildebrandt

    Hey Linda! One of my favorite holiday traditions is going through my Christmas MP3 collection and making CDs for my friends cars! Call me a digital girl who loves music! xoxo let me know if you want one! I got all genres! haha

  • Tatiana

    My favourite Christmas tradition is writing Thank You letters to my close family members and putting them on a Christmas tree. After all presents are open, people get their Thank you letters that they read in silence and it usually puts a smile on their face.

  • Jayda

    I have to admit, my favourite holiday tradition is shaking the presents under the tree. :)

  • Steve Borsellino

    Our family tradition is popping Christmas crackers and wearing the crowns! Then one of use always forgets we are wearing it. Good times!

  • Laurie

    My eight-year-old daughter and I have been making a gingerbread house together for the last four years.

  • Stephanie Riche

    Our favorite is on Christmas Eve the kids open one present (which is always new PJs) and then we do karaoke and play games before heading to bed :)

  • Lisa Savill

    Church at midnight in my hometown, no matter how cold, we always walk. It’s always the most beautiful night of the year.

  • Aoife Jones

    My favourite would either be decorating the tree together or christmas baking together.
    @itsrllyeefa

  • Emma Pearson

    My favorite is Christmas morning waking up at 5AM & having shandy’s & bacon sandwiches the English traditional way!!!

  • Emma P

  • Linda

    We are celebrating a birthday, so we bake a birthday cake and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. We live on a farm, and often go carolling around the neighbourhood. Other fond memories are the smells and sounds….Christmas baking, the turkey cooking and carols…a most special time of the year! Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  • stephanie caddick

    My favorite Christmas tradition is having everyone gathered around on Christmas Eve and unwrapping our brand new Christmas Pajamas. We all look forward to it all year.

  • Soup is my most comforting of comfort foods but Iโ€™m also totally comforted with any potatoes. ๐Ÿคค๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป like the fried potatoes from @tzin104 - They are packed with flavour - garlic, onions, smoked paprika salt, with โ€œangryโ€ aioli. ๐Ÿ˜ (While at Tzin, you also NEED to try chef @corndoghatfireโ€™s bacon dish). Whatโ€™s your go-to comfort food?? ๐Ÿฝ
