So it's November. I know, I know, the July events seemed to breed a little more excitement and anticipation. But don't judge November too quickly cause we've got pre-holiday fun
, the finest in French film on schedule, and you'll be pleased to know there are still a few events and shopping locations
devoid of Christmas jingles
. For now.

From a freakishly summer-esque day to a bone-chilling arctic experience, anything can happen in Montreal in November. But it's not as bad as it sounds. And while it's not time for down-filled coats just yet, remember to bundle up. Think wool overcoat and/or lightly insulated fall jackets with a sweater or layer of fleece underneath. And bring out those gloves and scarves. You'll need them.
