Ever since I became old enough to start challenging the true existence of jolly old St. Nick is when I started becoming more of a grinch. Around the age of 16, I was delivering newspapers and earning my own small change. I never was or never will be great at budgeting or be managing money but I realized I was able to buy the “needs” my mom (for some reason) would always call “wants” Nevertheless the thought that I may no longer require Santas services coupled with the freedom to be naughty instead of pretending to be nice furthered my spiral into grinch-hood.
The overly commercialization of shopping, finding the perfect present and gift giving can often make us forget the true meaning of the holidays. So aside from being at home surrounded by my family, there is only one other place in Toronto that will always get me in the Christmas spirit and that’s the Toronto Christmas Market
