Christmas Market 2012

Let me start off by wishing everyone happy holidays! A few weekends ago was a bit early for Christmas but I started getting into the spirit by visiting the Christmas market at the Distillery District. The Christmas market is inspired by the heritage and charm of a European Christmas market. The tradition originated in Germany but Toronto's own is a mix of European as well as Canadian, complete with stalls of perogies, poutine, and chocolate covered bacon. And with it being the Distillery District there was, of course, beer. Although the event is outdoors, the beer gardens consisted of lounge seats surrounding several fire pits to keep warm. 

On top of the food & drinks, there were pony rides, a carousel, Christmas carollers, and pictures with Santa. And if you so pleased, you could even find your Christmas tree there. All the little boutiques that make the Distillery District so unique kept open for the hours of the market too. They made for a good escape from the cold. See you next year, Christmas market!
