The Christmas Village at Atwater Market is back again in Montreal for another year!

Sure, sure, it's only the first of October, Christmas seems like lightyears away and, y'know what, maybe it is a bit too soon to be announcing this great news.

But the spirit of Christmas is infectious, and in a city like Montreal where we get so much snow and such cold temperatures, we need something festive to get us through the long winter nights.

It's beyond any religious celebration. Christmas is about food, community, the great outdoors, the great indoors and so much more. Though there's no denying - that Christ guy clearly knew how to throw a proper birthday party, if people still celebrate it today.

Take this outdoor market that runs all winter long, for example, which has the ability to bring out artisans and art lovers, chefs and foodies, adults and children, no matter the weather or windchill.

So that's why we're sharing this great news so early - because it really is news to get excited about... and maybe you want to mark it in your calendar so you can start your Christmas shopping as early as possible.

Because we all know, by December it's going to be packed.

The Atwater Market will transform into a Christmas Village near the end of November and will remain a little piece of the North Pole right here in Montreal until right before Christmas Day.

The market is made up of 50 tiny little chalet huts where local artisans, crafters and restaurateurs display their amazing work to the public.

In addition to shopping, there's always some entertainment. Would it be a Montreal event without some local musicians, Christmas choirs and other shows? Obviously not.

There's also little bonfires to roast some marshmallows, tons of activities and events for kids and you can even grab your Christmas tree on your way out!

Get all the full what, when, where below!
