5 Ways Students Around the World Are Thriving Despite COVID

JFK wasn’t quite correct when he popularised the idea that the Chinese word for ‘crisis’ was formed of characters for ‘danger’ and ‘opportunity,’ but the idea has stuck for a reason.

7 Christmas Markets You Must Visit Now This Holiday Season in Canada

Due to the pandemic, we have been without festive activities for two years, but many Christmas markets across Canada will finally be open during the holidays. If you don’t know what Christmas markets are, they are centuries-old German traditions in which many German towns host Christkindlmarkets in December. Each market is unique and features local artisans and regional treats. Locals participate in the festivities by sampling local delicacies, shopping for gifts, and sharing holiday cheer. Public health advisories may apply: capacity may be limited, pre-registration may be required, masks will be required, and social distancing is recommended. Here are the Christmarkets that are open now in Canada and you must check them out before another lockdown occurs!

Black Friday: A Day of Spending AND Saving

Black Friday: A Day of Spending and Saving

After the month of September, holidays and important annual celebrations seem to be every other day with no sign of slowing down until after the New Year has been rung in. While I love a good celebration as much as the next person, the seemingly-constant stream of events that take place following Labour Day makes the last four months of the year a little overwhelming (and expensive). For example, with October comes Thanksgiving (in Canada) and Halloween, followed by November which brings with it the Thanksgiving celebrations (in the United States) and Black Friday (I’ll get back to this later), and who could forget about the December festivities such as Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Bodhi Day (or whatever else you celebrate!), with New Years’ celebrations to wrap it all up. Regardless, as your designated Holiday-Helper when it comes to holidays in Canada, it is my duty to keep you posted about the holidays and important events that are coming up so you can plan and celebrate accordingly. With this in mind, let’s take a look at the day that embodies consumer-culture; Black Friday!

Why Halloween is the Best Half-Holiday

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Everyone says that Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year, and while I don’t think I can dispute that in good conscience, the time of year around Halloween is a very close second. The leaves are falling, pumpkins are out, the weather is gloomy… The whole October atmosphere really just completes the spooky season! Halloween has been one of my favourite holidays since I was a little girl, so I’m a little extra passionate about today’s article. With that being said, let’s take a look into how Canada celebrates Halloween!
