Well, the jingles (and assorted remixes) have started. The holiday season has officially been flung upon us so why not enjoy? Take your pick of holiday and non-holiday activities, listed just below!
From Christmas events to Christmas shopping, December can feel mildly nauseating. Exhausting. Or invigorating, depending on your perspective. Though if you need a break from holiday-speak, consider dropping by one of Montreal's public markets. First choice? The Jean-Talon Market. And be aimless about it. Buy a bag full of rosebud tea, sample honey wine, grab a coffee, a baklava, crepe, samosa, whatever. And just sit down. And relax.
December is easily the slowest month for concerts in Montreal. Or anywhere for that matter. Not much in the way of big tickets, there's a huge drop in shows altogether as of December 21st, which happens ever year as holiday season takes hold. But there's still plenty of gems to enjoy, as I've discovered sifting through said limited listings.
