Only a few more hours and we’re in the month of December! So, so excited for the holiday season. It’s my absolute favourite time of the year, from the twinkle lights everywhere, the coziness that comes with those first snowy days, the excitement of picking out the perfect christmas gift for everyone on your list, and of course the focus on friends and family as we all celebrate this magical time together.
One of my favourite things to do in the lead-up to Christmas is visit the Christmas market in Toronto’s Distillery District. Christmas markets are so near and dear to my heart, with our whole family being German and having spent several years of my adult life living in Munich and Stuttgart and developing this huge love for German Christmas markets. And I think the Distillery District does such a fabulous job of creating that traditional European atmosphere in the heart of Old Toronto. This year, Chris and I decided to kick off the holiday season with a date night to the Christmas market last week. No kids, no stress, just a wonderful evening spent eating way too much good food, listening to carollers singing Christmas classics, and just enjoying some much-needed couple time.
