After two years where many Christmas craft shows in Toronto were cancelled or had several restrictions, it looks like we are back to normal for the upcoming holiday season. I’m thrilled about this because I always love attending Toronto Christmas craft sales to find unique gifts for my family and friends (and even me!). Attending these holiday shows always puts me in a Christmas mood. If you are like me, you will want to add these to your calendar way ahead of time…that’s why I’m posting this early. And if you want to start planning your holiday baking, have a look at these Christmas bar cookie recipes!
