Toronto Christmas Market

Since 2013, Damian and I have made a point of going to the Toronto Christmas Market together with our families.  We book a date that will make sense and head down for an afternoon of fun and Christmas cheer.  A typical visit includes a visit to Santa, some shopping, a few snacks, lots of photos, and a sit-down bite to eat.

This year, Susie and I had taken Hudson to see Santa earlier, so we came up with a new way to enjoy the market: a photo scavenger hunt!   We made a list, checked it twice, and made our way down to the market.  Here is our list of must-have shots to finish the scavenger hunt:

  • Shot of the big Christmas Tree

  • An ornament bigger than your head

  • Pink trees

  • A gingerbread house

  • A photo with a smiling elf

  • A photo with soup

  • The Big Heart

  • A shot with the Werthers display

  • A shot with the Ferrero booth

  • The #TCM17 hashtag

  • A picture of lights

  • A shot of an oversize present

  • A cask

  • A picture of some people carolling

  • The Ferris Wheel

  • The Carousel

  • A shot of an old vehicle

  • A picture of a disco ball

  • A shot with one of the performers

  • A picture on the "merci" bench

Of course, you can mix up the above with any of your favourites.  We made up a prize for Hudson if he could find all of the shots on the list ... a $10 prize that he could shop for as we were on the hunt.

Here is a Flickr album with some of our favourite shots from 2017:
