December is finally upon us, and with the colder temperatures come a host of fun activities for the whole family over the holiday. Many of these events span the whole month of December, and are wonderful opportunities to get outside, enjoy some quality time with loved ones, and take part in some great activities across Ontario.
Santa Claus Parades - Across Ontario
The various Santa Claus Parades start at the beginning of December, and happen in many towns and cities across the province. Google Maps will tell you which ones are closest to you. We highly recommend these parades, they are wonderful to get out into the community.
Outdoor Ice Skating - Toronto and Ottawa
Every year, Toronto creates beautiful outdoor skating rinks that are open throughout December and into the New Year. Nathan Phillips Square offers a wonderful view of the Festival of Lights exhibition, and Natrel Rink at the Harbourfront Centre offers a beautiful view of the Toronto waterfront. Natrel Rink also offers Saturday night DJ dance skates during the month of December.
Ottawa boasts the most famous natural skating ‘rink’ in the country - the Rideau Canal. With almost 8km of skating through the heart of Ottawa with music and snack huts down the length of the canal, this is a unique experience for the whole family. While the Canal doesn’t officially open until January, it is a must-do activity for over the holidays if you are in the area.
Christmas Markets - Kitchener, Toronto, Collingwood
The Christkindl Market in Kitchener is Canada’s original German Christmas market, with traditional foods, stories, and holiday activities for the whole family. Toronto’s famous Christmas Market also begins in the Distillery District, with a distinctly European feel to the treats, activities, and music made for dancing.
Jingles & Joy at Blue Mountain in Collingwood hosts a free fireworks show every Saturday in December. Ontario’s biggest pedestrian Christmas market, the village at Blue Mountain has wonderful shops and restaurants, a Santa’s village, horse and buggy rides, and sits at the base of Blue Mountain, one of the province’s best skiing resorts.
Christmas Lights - Across Ontario
The Winter Festival of Lights in Niagara Falls is a beautiful exhibition that you can drive or stroll through, with scenes of both traditional and modern characters that the whole family will love. The lights run along the length of the Falls, which are also lit up in a myriad of colours for a wonderful holiday experience. These lights paired with the fun of Clifton Hill make this a fantastic outing that everyone will enjoy.
Various Events and Shows - Across Ontario
December hosts some of the best events and shows across the province, ranging from the One of a Kind Show in Toronto, showcasing homemade goods, food and drink, jewelry and fashion to more laid back events like the 12 Beers of Christmas event at the Gladstone Hotel.
There are also traditional performances like the National Ballet of Canada’s presentation of The Nutcracker, and Stratford, Ontario’s December Performance Showcase if you want to enjoy a more thespian-themed outing.

A note from our long term disability lawyers
Taking a medical leave from work is not an easy decision to make. Concerns about providing for yourself and your family and keeping your job may cause you to want to push through your pain, but this won’t make your problems go away. Stopping work is often the smartest decision for your long term health and well-being, and your disability benefits are there to provide you with financial support until you can return to work.
If you have made the tough decision to stop working and apply for your short term disability or long term disability benefits, you may feel overwhelmed by the process and have questions that your employer and your insurance company are not able or willing to answer. Share is There to see you through and answer your questions.
Our Disability law firm knows what you have been going through
We understand that things have not been easy for you over the last little while. Your health has been suffering, you are unable to work, and now your insurance company, who was supposed to be there in your time of need, has decided they will not pay your disability benefits or respect your disability claim. These benefits exist to provide you with the financial support you need so that you can focus on your health and rebuilding your life. It is unfortunate that your insurance company has not lived up to its promise. If your disability claim has been denied, we will fight to get you the benefits you are entitled to. Our disability lawyers have helped thousands of Canadians get their long term disability benefits over the past 35 years, and we can help you too.

When Share Lawyers gets involved, you have an entire team of lawyers that are there to support you and to fight for what is yours.
