Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Accent Inn Santa Claus Duck

Merry Christmas

Christmas is a time to be together. To celebrate those we love and remember those who have loved and supported us. As we are 2 days away from Christmas we want to say thanks to all of our wonderful customers that have been there for us this year. This is the time of year we look forward to celebrating with our families and welcoming those who have travelled and are staying while they visit their families.  For those who celebrate Hanukkah or other holidays we wish you the best of the season as well. One thing we believe in at Accent Inns is diversity. We celebrate it with our diverse staff, customers and in support of several community organizations. It’s what makes Canada so wonderful.

Speaking of wonderful, thanks to all the incredible community and not-for-profit groups we have had the privilege to work with this past year. You make it possible for so many to have a Christmas or holiday celebration. You bring families together. You make families whole. You even help create families. You bring us together with pets that offer unconditional love. You teach us about our environment. You find ways to help people get well and support those who are not. You find ways fund research so that others can get better and hold our hands when we have to say goodbye to those we love. Thanks to all of you that have helped wipe our tears, given us hugs and made us smile.

Merry Christmas to all!
