When you go visit Christmas Market at Distillery District , you wouldn’t want to be anywhere else in the world but there. It claims to be the number one holiday markets in the world, and perhaps you would say it’s a fact.
One of the things that made my family and I’s December extra special was heading there. To be honest, we are very lucky to have such an awesome event like this here in Toronto that we don’t have to go travel far and spend more money just to experience the whole incredible concept of those originally famous Christmas Holiday Markets on Earth such as the one in Germany, Hungary, Denmark, and Strasbourg.
It’s main purpose was for the visitors to rediscover magic and romance of Christmas while listening to the choir singing Christmas Carols, while eating turkey legs, or lining up in a poutine stand. What an amazing vision. And it’s true. They pulled it through. This is something Torontonians can be really proud of.
