Windsor During The Holidays



By Nick Montaleone | December 22, 2021

Tis’ the season to be jolly! With the holidays quickly approaching us as well as the cold winter days, many Windsorites are preparing in their own way. Whether you’ve been here for years or recently moved to YQG, you may be wondering of what special things there are to do. Being a border city as well as a thriving city, Windsor, Ontario has a lot to offer you and your family throughout the whole year, but especially during the festive holiday season.


We like to hold onto traditions and pass them on to generations to come. For many decades during Christmas time, Santa touches down at Devonshire Mall in a Helicopter to greet all his loved ones. Whether they've been naughty or nice, young ones can enjoy the excitement of meeting Santa, sharing their wish list, and even taking a picture for memories.

For the older folks feeling jolly and giving during the holiday season, you can always put your heart in the right place and donate to the Goodfellows. Windsor is proud of all the charitable organizations they offer, but especially of our Goodfellows. For 111 years, Windsorites have come together by purchasing the holiday paper with any monetary donation they give, that goes toward helping those in need in our community. This goes to show how loving, kind, and generous Windsor is – home to some of the best residents.


Moving forward to recent new events introduced in our city, Bright Lights Windsor has been taking place the past couple of years at Jackson Park. Decorated in all the beautiful lights, families can enjoy an evening filled with the holiday spirit. Local business can also share their products with our community at the Holiday Market. Whether you!re craving pretzels, popcorn, or a tasty cup of hot chocolate to keep warm, you can enjoy that with your family at the Bright Lights with local vendors. On the other hand, a quick trip to Downtown Detroit just minutes away from Windsor, you can check out a winter wonderland with an ice skating rink, holiday market and a big, bright Christmas tree
