The holiday season is almost upon us. I don't know about you, but it feels to me like Montreal is getting into the Christmas spirit a lot sooner than usual. With so many cool and festive activities going on this weekend, you can get in the holiday spirit too! 

Let’s be real, there are two kinds of people in the city, those who blast Christmas music at the first sight of snow and those who only acknowledge the season on December 24. If you're one of the latter, it shouldn't stop you from taking part in some of the things going on this weekend in Montreal. 

Whatever type of person you are, the city is offering a slew of fun and out of the box events to take part in. From hidden Christmas markets and vintage shopping to dumplings and karaoke at the same time, this weekend is sure to be nothing short of amazing. 

We live in a pretty great city, there's no denying that. Don’t allow the cold keep you cooped up in your home - it's too early to let that happen. Instead, why don’t you embrace the cold and enjoy it, like a true Canadian?
