Christmas is my favourite holiday season, the sense of community mixed with all of the warmth and buzz throughout the city is intoxicating. So this year I have decided to bring you all a series of holiday related features that will be sure to bring anyone some cheer!

My first feature is a list of my 6 Christmas market picks for the holiday season! These are always a lot of fun because they host an array of handmade items and you can find some really neat christmas gift ideas or decor, can’t make one of them? some of them have multiple dates they are running!
