Around this time of year, I start to get tired of school. The prospect of the winter break looms in the distance (so close yet so far!), but there are still so many exams to study for and final papers to write. Luckily, there are some holiday-themed events coming up that I’ll be using as an excuse to step away from the books this exam season.

1) Sew This Is Christmas:

WHAT: Food trucks, Christmas trees for sale, and live music

WHEN: Friday November 29 (today!!!) from 4 pm to 8 pm

WHERE: Ottawa Street



2) Winter Wander 

WHAT: A street festival with live ice sculpting, a fire juggler, live music performances, free hot chocolate, and much more!

WHEN: Friday December 13 from 5 pm to 11 pm

WHERE: Westdale Village


These events look like a great stress reliever and break from exams, and I’m sure that there are many more I didn’t mention! Comment below if you have any other suggestions!
