On Wednesday, we asked Peace Arch News readers to submit photos of their pets all dressed up for Christmas, and the submissions did not disappoint.

Whether the photos were of dogs wearing antler hats or cats in Christmas trees – or even one bearded dragon – it’s clear that everyone on the Semiahmoo Peninsula is getting into the holiday spirit.
