2023 Mug Reveal
Visiting the Vancouver Christmas Market is a joyful experience filled with delightful surprises.
One of the most anticipated delights is discovering the new mug design for the year. This year,
we decided to make the selection process even more special by hosting a competition that
invited local creative minds to submit designs that best represented the Market. With an
abundance of local artistic talent, choosing the winning design was no easy task. Ultimately,
Hansrol Choi’s creation was selected to grace our 2023 mugs. Her design beautifully
encapsulates her ‘fun and exciting memories of the Vancouver Christmas Market’ and her
anticipation of this year’s festivities. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Hansrol for bringing
the essence of the Market to life through her artistic vision.
Curious about the history of these cherished mugs? Keep reading.
The tradition of using commemorative mugs at Christmas Markets has deep roots in the heart
of Europe. In Germany, where the concept of Christmas Markets originated, these mugs have
been a beloved part of the holiday season for centuries. The Vancouver Christmas Market has
embraced and adapted this European tradition, curating an exclusive collection of collectible
mugs that perfectly capture the spirit of our event. Each year, our guests eagerly anticipate the
opportunity to purchase these collectible mugs and savor our delightful Glühwein in them.
Don’t miss the chance to take a piece of the Christmas Market’s magic home with you. Purchase
your mug here and join us in celebrating the joyous spirit of the season.
