We could be wrong, but the holiday season is the best time of the year. Things just look magical with all the snow and merry lights. We can't wait to celebrate through to the new year at all the festive events taking place. One thing you'll need to scratch off your winter bucket list is to visit some Christmas markets in Canada.\nChristmas markets are the perfect way to get you in the festive spirit. These joyful events combine twinkling lights with vendors selling delicious seasonal treats and extraordinary gifts for everyone on your shopping list.\nThroughout the country, there are so many incredible Christmas markets to discover.

Both events combine picture-perfect Christmas markets with twinkling light trails and illuminated structures.\nOr, if you're near Toronto, you won't want to miss the Toronto Christmas Market, which is one of the best Christmas markets in Canada.
