I literally get Christmas Fever and for somebody who has never had a white Christmas before, Toronto just brought all the magic together.
December in Toronto is actually an enchanted experience and there are many places that you simply can visit but the one that tops the list, and not just mind but of the globe is that theToronto Christmas Market. Hosted within the Distillery District, it’s like I stepped into a Victorian world with all the lights, little wooden huts, delicious festive food and most of all the atmosphere of cheerfulness.

Its $12 on the day of purchase on weekends and Fridays starting at 6pm. you’ll also purchase the premium pass for $30 that permits you to skip the road which is usually excruciatingly long.
