Everyone’s favourite holiday, Christmas is a special time of year that offers so many things to do and celebrate – especially in Canada. This tag explores how to celebrate Christmas in Canada, including what to do and not to miss sites over the holiday season in Canada’s top destinations, plus some of the unique festive activities – not only in our cities, but in the Rockies and other tourist destinations.

Christmas in Banff is a magical experience, a true winter wonderland with the fairytale Castle in the Rockies – the Fairmont Banff Springs at its epicentre. Besides skiing in Banff or warming up along the hot chocolate trail, you won’t want for seasonal joy.

While you may not suspect it, there are so many Calgary Christmas events, festivals and activities, it’s worth searching out this city for a visit and we share all the details in this dedicated post.

We all know, Christmas is a busy time, especially for families. The tag also has posts on how to look good on busy holiday morning and cooking secrets from celebrity chefs. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to make the season magical and we have several posts with easy suggestions from crafts and activity ideas for kids to advent calendar ideas for kids and adults!

Finding the perfect present can be stressful, so we’ve broken that down with posts on perfect gifts for men, women, children and those hard to buy for tricky people!

That lull in between Christmas and New Years is addressed too, because cabin fever over the winter holidays is all too real. As the holidays come to an end, we finish off the year with a spot of goal setting and reflection.
