OK guys, I know how excited you all are for the Holidays, now that December is here! You're thinking about gifts to buy, outfits to wear, parties to throw or to go to, and just generally dying to get festive already - at least, I know I am.

As much as you don't want to admit it, I know you're also wondering what YOU'RE going to get for Christmas this year, whether from your friends, family, or at the gift exchange with your co-workers. If you're like me, these thoughts usually lead to me wanting to treat myself. Or maybe you already bought yourself an early Christmas gift ;).

Well, I just so happen to have the most fun and rewarding way for you and your friends to treat yourselves this December: the Montreal Casino. They have an amazing array of activities planned for you this year, and more importantly, insane prizes to win.

Naughty or Nice

Naughty or Nice is by far the coolest activity this year. First off, you need to push the mighty button that reveals whether you've been naughty or nice this year to get your entry ticket.

Second, Santa and Grinch (yes, the real ones) are on site taking care of the draws, so you can hang out with them and hope that they will get your name out of the box!

Third, the winners of the draw (10 per night) can choose from a variety of amazing gifts wrapped by Santa’s elves, or by the Grinch’s clumsy hands. Some of the prizes up for grabs this year are electronic tablets, smart TVs, hotel deals, money prizes and much more.

And the best part is...

Last but not least, by simply pushing that button, you have the chance of winning the $10,000 jackpot! In fact, one name will be drawn out of all the winners of the Naughty or Nice promotion, so you actually could leave with a sweet new TV AND a madly refreshed bank account!

And you can even up your chances of winning...

...by playing online at espacejeux.com! You are invited to enter the promotional code for a chance at winning one of five $500 prizes each night, in addition to another $10,000 to be drawn at the end of the promotion.

It's an opportunity you truly can't miss if you're looking for a fun and exciting way to treat yourself this December!

And there's so much more going on at the Montreal Casino during the Holidays. Here are some of the things you can do:

The Holiday Promotion

Win up to $150,000 by participating in the Holiday Promotion! There are only two days left for this one, December 1 and 8, so you'll want to get on it right away! All you need to do is play the slot machines to accumulate participations for the draw for your chance to enter the mini slot machine tournament. The winner of the tournament then moves on to the final game for a chance to win the $150,000 jackpot!

Treat Your Taste Buds

The Montreal Casino's restaurants are offering prix fixe Holiday menus this year, making this the perfect time to discover the variety of plates!

Le Montreal has an awe-inspiring view of the city, and their menu is literally overflowing with the creativity of Chef Jean-Pierre Curtat and his team, while Le Pavillon 67 offers the ultimate gourmet experience with all-you-can-eat seafood and more. Finally, L’Atelier Joël Robuchon is featuring exciting and unique dishes from the world-renowned chef, all with a festive Holiday twist.

You can even plan a party for your friends or coworkers at one of the casino's bars, and they will take care of food and have a chef on site for you for only $37 per person.

What else, you ask?

In addition to all of these special Holiday promotions and activities, the Montreal Casino is also hosting a New Year's Party that includes live bands and DJs, free promotional items, an epic New Year's countdown and more!

The Montreal Casino is the place to be this December, if you want to get into the Holiday spirit and treat yourself and your friends to some fun and excitement!

For all the Christmas fans out there, there's a magical Quebec park that's only 40 minutes from Quebec and two and a half hours from Montreal.

With the giant decorations under the snow, the little houses and the glittering ornaments in a wooded park that has the scent of Christmas trees, you'll feel like you've been transported to the village of Whoville from The Grinch.

Now that dance floors in Quebec are finally open again, people are looking to make up for lost time. And that's exactly why one Montreal bar, Le Saint Édouard, is hosting a New Year's Eve 2021 party this Thursday, November 18.

"When I learned that the dance floors were reopening on November 15, I took the initiative to make this party as we did not have the opportunity to really celebrate New Year's Day last year, so we're making up for it this year," Damien, co-owner and director of Le Saint Édouard, told Narcity.
