As many Canadians are settling into fall now that September is coming to an end, it's only a few short months until the holiday season is upon us. While some may say it's too early for the holiday spirit, I would beg to differ.
Considering there is already snow in the weather forecast and autumn has officially arrived, it's time for Canadians to start settling their holiday bucket lists. Luckily for you, we have a holiday treat that you won't want to miss because the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train is the ultimate Christmas event.
While Ontarians will be treated to riding the Polar Express this winter, the CP Holiday Train travels across Canada and the U.S. to celebrate the holiday with decorative lights, concerts, and of course, food donation for local food banks.
Tons of Canadians have made the CP Holiday Train part of their tradition, as the 2018 holiday season will actually be the 20th route the train across the country.
The 2017 route included Montreal, Toronto, Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Kamloops, Vancouver and so many other cities in between. Though the official announcement of the schedule will not be announced until October, we cannot wait to see the exact time the train will be stopping by.
Each visit will include a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus, plus a beautiful display of Christmas lights and performances of holiday carols we all love.
The best part of the Holiday Train? It's absolutely free for visitors to see and experience the magical celebration of the holidays.
So grab your best friends, your parents, or someone you want to kiss under the mistletoe. You don't want to miss this beautiful holiday tradition, especially on its 20th trip across the country!
