There are so many magical things to look forward to during the Christmas season. From twinkling markets to festive fairs, Toronto turns into one big winter wonderland. One annually anticipated event is the Hudson's Bay windows. Famous for their all-out Christmas decor, the display spreads magic through the streets every year. This year, the enchanting windows are returning once more, and it's sooner than you think. Toronto's Hudson's Bay Christmas Windows are officially being unveiled this week, and we can't wait to see what they look like.

The windows will be showcased to the public on Thursday, November 14. Head over to Hudson's Bay on Queen St. to glimpse the brand new holiday installations.

Past displays have included enchanting storybook scenes and giant snowglobes. This year promises to be just as special, and some festive events have been planned to celebrate the reveal.

The holiday event will take place at 5:30 p.m, and will run until 9 p.m. Activities include a holiday baking presentation with Chef Anna Olsen and an acoustic performance by the Reklaws*. 

You'll be able to meet several local celebrities including Johnny Orlando and Raptors Superfan Nav Bhatia who will be the event attending with their families.

Watch Orlando, Vanessa Grimaldi, Nav Bhatia and Anna Olson take part in a present wrapping competition for charity, and indulge in some delicious holiday-themed treats.

The Bay will be offering exclusive savings during the event, so it's a good opportunity to get some of that Christmas shopping done.

While you're there, stop by the FAO Schwarz pop-up, which has returned for another season. You'll feel as though you've wandered into Santa's workshop.

There's no word yet on what to expect for the display, so take a trip to Hudson's Bay this week and see what Christmas magic they've created this year.

The Toronto Christmas market is also opening on the same day, which means you can have an entire evening of Christmas festivities!
