The holidays return to Universal Orlando Resort from November 12 to January 1, 2023, with the best of the season, lots of festive characters, and one not-so-festive character.
Celebrate that special time of year in Las Vegas as Holiday at The Park returns on November 29th with lights, food, and live entertainment.
Call this our annual gift to you: the 2017 holiday TV schedule is ready, and you can follow along in our special calendar.
Are you ready to get into the Christmas spirit? We’ve got you covered because The GATE is giving away Mariah Carey’s new animated movie, All I Want for Christmas is You on Blu-ray.
Good food and great music go together like best friends, and this holiday season Sonos has a new way to make your parties extra festive by inviting your guests to supply the music. Sonos calls it a Playlist Potluck, and recently I had a chance to experience it first-hand with Notable founder Julian Brass, who hosted the party, and Eatertainment’s Sebastien Centner catering the special event.
Christmas is my favorite time of year because it starts around mid-November and goes all the way until the end of December. While I’m no fashionista, I do love getting dressed up for the right occasions, and this year I have to point out a new love for the holidays from to OppoSuits: Christmas suits. They’re stylish and seasonal, and for $129 they’re actually pretty cheap if you ask me. I’ve seen ugly Christmas sweaters for almost the same price.
The snow fell and the crowds cheered in Toronto as singer and diva Mariah Carey visited Hudson’s Bay and Saks Fifth Avenue to launch their new holiday windows. The snow was confetti, but the fans were thrilled as Carey belted out “All I Want For Christmas Is You” in front of the Queen Street West storefront.
Don’t look now, but summer seems to be waning even though it feels like it just started. That’s the usual story this time of year, and it’s why I always try to make the most of things. That’s probably my mantra, come to think of it–and at least I’ve had some great things to work with these last couple of weeks.
Looking for a few last-minute, stylish, holiday gift ideas that will brighten up your home, or make a fantastic Christmas gift? Here are a few of my top suggestions from Papyrus, which has three stores in Toronto, and a lot of giftable options for this festive time of year.
