We loved watching Holiday Inn at Shaw Festival. As director, Kate Hennig notes in a world plagued by anxiety and fear we feel guilty to enjoy simple pleasures like looking at the blue skies, going for an old-fashioned walk, enjoying the holidays. This musical reminds us to take the time to be happy in our pursuit of happiness!

Gift of Lights at Bingemans is the largest drive thru Holiday Light Display in Southwestern Ontario. This year there are two tunnels and more animated and static light displays than ever before! It is fun to see the holiday spectacle of lights from inside the comfort of our vehicle, while listening to holiday music by tuning into Gift of Lights Radio at 100.1FM. Gift of Lights has already started and will end on January 5th, check the Bingemans website for times as it varies. This fun experience for all ages, families, couples, groups, and corporate events.

Holiday entertaining season is rushing upon us this year! No matter how organized we want to be, there is always that last minute rush. At the #LindtTheSeason event, I was able to learn a few awesome ideas on how we can use Lindt chocolate to decorate our home, use it as gifts, and incorporate it into our holiday cooking and baking.

New Year's Eve is a landmark occasion where everyone celebrates, whether you are hosting a cocktail party for long-time friends or giving little ones their first taste of the festivities. For some families, New Year's Eve is a mad dash to the finish line, as parents find themselves pulling together last minute celebrations while juggling the day-to-day demands of family life.

Avery labels are quite handy to have when we wrap gifts, as we can customize them easily on the computer and stick it on to our gifts, packages and envelopes. I enjoy using the Avery labels website to customize a variety of labels to place on gifts that we plan to present to family, friends and colleagues this holiday season.

My husband and I love shopping at Mark's because it is a one-stop-shop for us to buy clothes and footwear that we enjoy wearing. If you are looking to get outfits for yourself or planning on purchasing clothes and footwear to give as gifts to your loved ones, I would recommend shopping at Mark's online or at their store locations. We can always find quality, comfortable clothing that are sure to be loved.

It is always fun to make handmade gifts to present to friends and family. Holiday gifts that are made with love are more valued and treasured. My children and I love using Klutz Kits and have learned a variety of crafts using these Kits to get a better idea about a particular craft. These kits come with instructions and materials that make it easy to learn the craft and get to it right away! There is no need to look or shop for the tools and materials.

With the holiday season nearing, my family and I look for good quality hostess gifts and potluck items we can take to family and friends when we visit them, especially when time is limited to make our own. It is also wonderful to have these items in the fridge during the holidays to quickly prep the table when guests arrive. We hope the list below with the twelve items available at Metro will come in handy for you this holiday season.

My family and I enjoy doing do-it-yourself and craft projects because it allows us to make unique pieces we can add to our space. I find when we handcraft items, we appreciate it and care for it more because it does not carry monetary value. The books at DK Made by Hand Boutique are an inspiring collection with lots of ideas, which children and adults will enjoy.

It is fun to make our own homemade holiday cards to give our loved ones. To make this Holiday card, I used my Brother ScanNCut to cut out happy holidays and the snowflake. Then I used the Craft Twinkles Writer to frame and add sparkle to the card.

If you are an Android phone user, and you are looking to upgrade to a phone that has new features you might like this fabulous new Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 Smartphone. I find the prices of modern phones sometimes become a barrier to even think of owning one. I like that we can own the Alcatel One Touch Idol 3 Smartphone for a reasonably price compared to the latest smartphones in the market.

It is always special when the gifts we get especially from our children are handmade. This shows how much effort, love, and care they put into making it. My children and I got a chance to use and play with awesome Klutz Kits that provide fun activities for everyone over 8. Since 1977 Klutz creates activity kits that come with all the materials and instructions we need to make fabulous crafts. I think these kits are wonderful for both children and adults alike who enjoy doing crafts or learning how to do crafts. The end products of what we make using the material and inspiration from these kits can be given as gifts to loved ones.
