toronto christmas market


I had never known what Christmas markets were until I went to my first one in Paris last year at this time. Now that I'm back in Toronto, it only made sense to attend the Toronto Christmas Market, held at the Distillery District.

For those of you who don't know what a Christmas market is, it is a (typically) outdoor market decorated festively with sparkly lights, red, and tons of holiday cheer.


Of course there's a grand Christmas tree as well.


Little stalls in the shape of houses line the market selling Christmas-related things such as mulled wine, ornaments, and different types of homemade goods.


There were also carolers...


Rudolph noses...

My best (serious) Rudolph impression


And free stuff!

Free Mini-Wheats served however you'd like -


Top: Crazy Good Cocoa
Bottom: Berry Nice to Heat You

And a Coca-Cola stand, where they gave away free Coke in their classic glass bottles, and you could take photobooth pictures for $1 (donated to the Star Santa Claus fund).


Although it was a super cold winter night, it was the best way to kick off December and the holiday season. The Toronto Christmas Market runs until December 15, so definitely go check it out before then!
