<ENG>Since I’ve landed in Montreal, I’ve  started looking for events that I’d like and could enrich me. Some of them were too expensive to be visited, the others I discovered only after they were finished. Thankfully in Montreal there is always, always, something going on. And obviously, at one moment, I started feeling frustrated because i was missing something interesting everyday.

Some  feel the Christmas coming thanks to the changes in radios’ playlists, some thanks to sales and house decorations. I felt it by the abundance of Christmas events all around in Montreal. Mostly fairs, exhibitions and markets dedicated to the looking-for-a Christmas -gift craziness.

At the very beginning, on the left as well as on the right side of the entrance, you can choose your first snack: meat or seafood. I ignored les saucissons, despite a very nice boy,  inviting me with a smile.
