If the Weather Network predicts correctly, Toronto may have a white Christmas.
But that shouldn’t stop non-Christmas-celebrators from venturing out to check a movie. While Cineplex already had it’s free day of Christmas movies, they’ll still be open on Christmas day itself = as many big budget films actually set their release date for December 25th, such as the new Star Wars: The Rise of the Skywalker, Little Women or Spies in Disguise (for the kiddos).
Feeling too cooped up with the relatives? Plenty of Toronto’s main attractions will still be open to the public, including Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, the CN Tower, TIFF Bell Lightbox, The Bentway and Ontario Place. Meanwhile, virtually every other museum will be closed – including the ROM, the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Ontario Science Centre – among many others.
All Toronto malls with the exception of the Pacific Mall will be closed.
;Missing that key ingredient for the feast? All Rabba stores will continue to overprice your basic food items (hey that’s the price of 24 hour convenience)! In addition, The Kitchen Table, The Food Depot, and Galleria Supermarkets will remain open most of the day. But don’t forget to buy your wine Christmas eve – because all LCBO’s and Beer Stores will be shuttered. Note: the Beer Store reopens on Boxing Day.
Don’t want to cook for yourself on Christmas? You can do Christmas lunch or dinner at Black Creek Pioneer Village while enjoying the magic of Victorian Christmas traditions at the Half Way House Inn or a five-course prix fixe Italian Christmas feast at 12 Tables.
Or do the most worthwhile and most satisfying Toronto thing ever: go to dim sum.
