Mainly because there are tons of super fun and beautiful holiday events happening all around Montreal, TBH. I mean, sure, there are awesome things happening in the city as well... but sometimes, you just need to absorb the awesomeness that exists outside of the city, too.

Just like the Festi-Lumiere, taking place in Quebec City, roughly a two hour drive out of Montreal.

Featuring over 500,000 LED lights on an outdoor circuit, the Festi Lumiere is a huge network of lights, light projections, music, outdoor fireplaces, and more, turning the city into pretty much a wintertime paradise.

The lights come in all shapes and sizes... but seeing as it's put on by the Aquarium Du Quebec, you can expect marine animals to be the main theme.

There'll also be an "enchanted" forest and tubing, which honestly sounds like the most fun thing you could possibly have in the winter.

Quebec City's Festi-Lumiere is going down from December 26 - January 8 every night from 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM, and then weekends only from January 13 - February 25.
