Christmas Shopping

Canada Post is warning shoppers that high volumes could delay some deliveries.
Make a plan and stick with it to avoid overspending on gifts this year.
We're already tired of "All I Want For Christmas Is You."
Despite it not being "my" holiday, I've always enjoyed Christmas, or at least the "spirit" of it. But in December of 2014 -- much like this year -- I was having a really hard time getting into it.
Christmas markets may have originated in Germany, but you don't have to travel to Nuremberg or Munich to enjoy the festive sights, sounds, and smells of a true holiday market. As soon as December is seen on the horizon, markets and bazaars begin to pop up across the Great White North's favorite cities and small towns.
The countdown is on -- Christmas is just around the corner. And we all know the key to stress-free entertaining is being prepared. There's nothing like leaving things to the last minute to throw you into a festive frenzy! So if you haven't decided what you are serving up for you holiday dinner, we can help.
Even the most enthusiastic shopaholic dreads this time of the year.
