TTC Christmas Cards

Remember the days when TTC buses would say Merry Christmas on their signs? It was a time when we didn’t need to be politically correct. Even though the TTC will argue it is so riders can read the bus route information more easily and not be distracted you have to admit the Merry Christmas greeting is probably gone for the same reason retailers can’t say Merry Christmas.

Anyways since the beginning of December people on Tumblr have been posting these TTC Christmas Cards and I have been hitting the like button on all of them them all. So here are three that really stood out for me!

White Boxing Day sounds a bit racially charged, so maybe we’ll just say that it still counts as a White Christmas… Also, YAY!!

Why I Love Christmas In Toronto

The Toronto Eaton Centre

Remember my Ode to Eaton’s a few days back? Well in that ode I said that the Eaton’s name has been associated with Christmas in Toronto for years. Well now we go to the modern association of that name – Toronto Eaton Centre. Every year the mega mall puts on an amazing Christmas display. This year the star/ waterfall light show returned to the Queen Street portion of the mall and the giant reindeer have reappeared. Furthermore, the Ferrero Rocher Tree was relocated to the Sears mall entrance way as opposed to in front of the Urban Eatery.  

The major difference this year is the ever modern Christmas Tree located in centre court next to the PINK by Victoria’s Secret. Unlike the full green trees they traditionally have, this year’s tree is very modern and green-less. I think it may be best just to look at the Instagram I took of the tree because I know I will butcher the description.  Alas, I will try. The tree has these panels that form a triangle to make the shape of the tree. Now the panels are spaced out so you can see the inside of the tree which is decorated with ornaments. The cool part though is that the tree lights up and illuminates all the colours of the rainbow.

Eaton is a name that is not forgotten to us during Christmas and will forever be a part of this city during the holiday season. So If you haven’t had the chance to I say head down to do some last minute shopping at the Toronto Eaton Centre tomorrow and check out the Christmas Display.

Why I Love Christmas in Toronto

The Toronto Christmas Market at the Distillery Historic District

The Distillery is a magical place all year round. If you go to the district on any given occasion it is like you’re stepping into a different world. I always think how can something so historic be stuck in the city that is so modern. So imagine what happens if you add a lot of Christmas decorations. Well then, this magical place year round becomes the ultimate winter wonderland.

This year the Toronto Christmas Market was held at the Distillery Historic District from November 30 to December 16 2012. If you went you got a firsthand look at the beautiful market and the district all decked out for the season. The market is meant to capture the feel of a European Christmas Market and has a lot of unique gifts ranging from locally made products to food, wax products, Dutch products and some very odd knick knacks. So keep this in mind for next year because the market may be the place to buy gifts for that person who is hard to buy for.

Not only do you get to enjoy the shopping and the decorations of the area, but there is also a stage with some of Canada’s greatest musicians. This year gracing the market is the amazing Measha Brueggergosman, Canadian rock-pop group Neverest, singer-songwriter Royal Wood, country girl Kira Isabella, The Philosopher Kings frontman Jarvis Church, Rockstar: INXS contestant Suzie McNeil, Sean Jones, and the bad boy of jazz-pop Matt Dusk. There was also sing-along with Santa’s elves, choirs from different neighbourhoods, storytelling, carollers and much more.   

Being in the Distillery Historic District one must think there would be alcohol involved in this event. Well there was! The Toronto Christmas Market had some beer gardens for you to enjoy a festive array of holiday drinks.

What a better way to get into the Christmas Spirit than visiting one of the most beautiful districts in Toronto all decked out in holiday attire and shopping for that someone on your list.
