So over the run up to Christmas I will be showcasing some festive soundbites.
If you’re gonna get “stuck” anywhere over Christmas.
If you can’t be with your family somewhere far away, you will have plenty to distract yourself – with a host of many fabulous festive events held across the city.
Over next few weeks why not try some of the following:
Twelve Trees at the Gardiner Museum
Kitchener Christkindl reflects the enormous German population of this area and is Christmassy in a way that only a German Christmas Market can be! Look out for Gluhwein, the corresponding mugs; traditional wooden decorations including revolving candle holders and table decor; Bavarian imports, oktoberfest sausage and oompah bands.
The Distillery Christmas Market
Carol Singing at Montgomery House
Christmas at Bovaird House Brampton
Christmas at Dundurn Castle Hamilton
Christmas Afternoons at Colborne Lodge
Jerome Godboo’s Christmas party at The Rex
The Nutcracker Ballet at ThE Four Seasons Opera House
“The National Theatre of the World” Christmas “farce” at The Passé Muralle theatre.
Mozart Magic at “Casa Loma”
The One of a Kind Show
Unfortunately we didn’t make it to:
The Santa Clause Parade
Lighting the tree at Nathan Phillips Square (although we are getting the benefit of the Christmas Lights festooning villages all over the city – we even have Xmas music blaring out of speakers on St Clair west which makes waiting for the streetcar jolly).
We won’t get to see;:
Russ Petty’s annual family show – akin to a good old British pantomime!
Handel’l sing-along Messiah
Handel’s Messiah by Tafelmusik baroque orchestra
