In the last several weeks we’ve experienced some fairly mild weather. According to the longterm forecast at we’re not going to be having a white Christmas.

This holiday season will be great for getting out with the family and walking around your neighbourhood. Take a look around, explore and find something new. The holiday weather may not be good for cuddling up in front of the fire but it will give you the opportunity to check out a local park like James Gardens, walk around the shops in Bloor West Village, enjoy a pint at the fairly new St. James Gate Irish Pub in Islington Village or spend time in the outdoors without freezing your tushie off.

If you are going to get out and about this holiday season make sure to check the forecast because you may need an umbrella but you definitely won’t be needing your snow shoes.

A mild, lovely, sunny day
