The best part about the winter holidays is getting to spend them with family. It’s one of those rare times during the year when everyone is off and available at the same time. While it’s truly a magical time of year, it can be slightly stressful as well. Coming up with different ways to entertain the whole family isn’t always easy. Thankfully, there’s a ton going on in and around our communities to keep you and your family busy and entertained while you’re off for the break. Here’s what to check out in Brampton, Whitby, and the GTA while your kids are off.
The holidays are wonderful for a myriad of reasons. Many are lucky enough to take time off from work to spend time with friends and family at home, while others pack their bags and jet off to a warm beach for their break. It’s during this time of year that we think back on all the things we’re lucky to have in our lives, and more importantly, those who may not be as lucky. While the holiday season is certainly about celebrations, it’s more so about giving, whether it’s giving gifts to your loved ones, or giving back to the community. This is something we at Paradise Developments take joy in doing every holiday season.
While there are definitely some skeptics out there, many of us spend the entire year looking forward to the holiday season. The parties, the food, the friends, and the family are enough to get people excited for Christmas. What really gets people into the festive mood? Decorations! It’s hard to not get all those warm and fuzzy feelings when you walk into a space adorned with festive vibes. While we love the traditional holiday looks, it’s fun to throw in some unique pops of festive fun here and there. Take a look through some of these beautifully designed holiday home moments and pick and choose what you want to add to your own home.
It seems like the holidays sneak up on us year after year. Despite this pattern, each year December hits and some of us are caught completely off guard. We always promise to be better prepared the next year, but these promises never seem to stick. We’re going to help you out this year though. Rather than having the holidays arrive and not being ready, we’ve made a list of all the things you can stock up on beforehand, so you’re ready for everything that comes your way.
There’s no busier time than the holiday season. Not only are things wrapping up at work, but you’re also trying to plan your own holiday events, as well as attend as many others as you can! It’s a great time of year to touch base with your family, friends, co-workers, and community. Thankfully there’s always lots going on in the month of December to keep you (and those you’re inviting) busy and entertained. Our communities in Brampton and Whitby are bustling any time of year, but their calendars are particularly full this December. Take a look through at everything you should be adding to your own calendar this month!
It seems like only yesterday the first tree in the neighbourhood turned bright orange, but with the temperatures steadily getting chillier and the white stuff having made an appearance already, it’s time we face facts – fall is ending. For many, fall is their favourite season, even trumping their love for the summer months. With pumpkin spiced lattes, beautiful autumnal colours, and crisp weather being plentiful, fall makes for the perfect backdrop for any photo and a great excuse to spend some time outdoors. We perused Instagram to see how fall in Brampton, Whitby, and Kleinburg looked through your eyes. Here are some of the highlights from Heber Down and Lynde Shores conservation area in Whitby, Heart Lake and Claireville conservation area in Brampton, and Kleinburg.
