This Tiny Christmas Village Near Toronto Is Like Stepping Into Snowy Hogsmeade

While your Hogwarts letter may not have arrived, you can still enjoy a little piece of magic by visiting this tiny Christmas village near Toronto.

Village Square Burlington is a charming collection of shops and eateries with old-time, European vibes.

The area is especially magical during the Christmas season, when the cobblestone streets are lit with twinkling lights and decor.

You'll feel as though you've stepped into snowy Hogsmeade as you visit the shops and take in the enchanting surroundings. There's even a red telephone booth, but it does not lead to the Ministry of Magic (at least, not that anyone knows of).

There are over 30 businesses to visit in the village, including a chocolate bar and pizza shop.

Put on your warmest robes and take a trip into a magical village this season.
