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!
