I know it's not too much of a confession, considering pretty much nobody loves winter, but still. The only thing I do like about winter? The holidays.

There's something super festive and awesome about the holiday season, and honestly, nothing makes me feel as happy as all these Christmas festivities.

And when I see someone who's obviously just as thrilled about the holidays as I am? Yeah, that's just the cherry on top of an awesome sundae.

One Montrealer in particular seems to be full of the holiday spirit: he just might have one of the most decorated houses in the whole city, located in Montreal's Cartierville (9035 Avenue Jean-Bourdon).

The decorations include lights everywhere (on the house, on the lawn, in the trees); Christmas-themed Minions, wreaths, colour-changing snowflakes, and a whole lot of awesome.

Guys, there's even a giant, inflatable nutcracker on the other side of the house!

Is this the most Christmassy house in Montreal? Quite possibly, friends. Quite possibly

Sidenote: am I the only one who truly believes this guy should have decorated our official Christmas tree, or..?

Ever since Premier François Legault cancelled Christmas gatherings in Quebec red zones, Quebecers have expressed a whole gamut of emotions on the internet. From memes comparing Legault to the Grinch to social media posts poking fun at him for suggesting we "take naps" instead of gathering, disappointment is in the air.

But aside from Legault's suggestions, few people seem to be discussing what Quebecers CAN do to mark the occasion this year, and what the holidays will actually look like.
