'Tis the season in Montreal for all things beautiful and bright! With the snow rolling in and the holiday season fastly approaching the entire city seems to be dressing itself up to look its best.

Instead of the traditional pine tree they chose and normal bare tree and wrapped them up in very bright white lights that glow like almost nothing you have ever seen.
