CHRISTMAS ACTIVITIES IN OAKVILLE

christmas-tree-ornaments

Oakville activities and events allow us to delight in Christmas cheer every holiday season! As we roll into winter, the kids look forward to spending special time with their families during festive events. The holidays bring warm celebrations with Santa, holiday shows, religious services and lots of fun and games! Winter snow invites us to bear the cold and hit the slopes or outdoor rink, make a snow man, and delight in the white fluffy coating that brightens the chilly night.

We look forward to sharing special time with the people dearest to us, bonding over the good cheer. Some of our neighbours may not celebrate Christmas, or any holiday tradition, but it is important to be respectful of everyone’s beliefs and welcome them to share in your cheer. This is also a good time to teach your children about values like compassion, giving and sharing.

As always, we’ve found plenty going on as early as November. Look through family shows, outdoor activities, concerts, parades, and much more. To search for a key word press CTRL-F on a PC or CMD-F on a MAC.

Happy Holidays!
