6 Things To Actually Look Forward To In Montreal This January

It's that time of year when the holiday season is coming to a close and we come to the realization that winter isn't going anywhere any time soon. Post-holiday blues are always pretty crummy, but they seem especially bad this year with everything going on. But not to worry — there are always things to do in Montreal to lift your spirits.

This January definitely feels different than other years, but there are still the classic things going on: amazing cultural exhibits, outdoor adventures and hockey.

Just because it's not the January we've come to know in Montreal, doesn't mean it's a January we can't love.

Here are some things to do/look forward to this January.
