Its December! Christmas month just started for a few days on the blog. I already talked about how I had done all the Christmas decorations in late November and a bit in early December so we’re not going to talk about that. There are a lot of events going on and in general, its been pretty busy as end of year stuff piles in before the holidays drop by and we all take a few days off. The blog won’t be affected as I’ll have stuff backlogged and ready to go, plus we’re hosting Christmas this year so I’ll be here and just taking it easy.
Let’s check out whats happened the first part of December!
Alight at Night
Check out the full post HERE.
On the first weekend of December, we headed out to Upper Canada Village in Ontario to go to the opening weekend of Alight at Night, which is a Christmas/winter event. This historical town has put up all its lights and its a walk through a town. There’s a place to visit Santa as well as different areas. Overall, a cool experience to get in the mood for winter. We didn’t have any snow yet but I’m guessing this weekend would be really pretty, although it does come with the extremely cold weather.
The Game Awards & Playstation Experience 2017
This is just a quick mention. The Game Awards happened on December 7th and the Playstation Experience was last weekend. There were some cool reveals and we, (Game Warp aka Elwood & I) did a full recap of both events (remotely thanks to the magic of livestreaming). You can find the links below:

What was also very cool was that Norman Reedus and Guillermo Del Toro both made appearances which was incredibly cool.
Salon des Metiers D’Art
One of my annual December events is going to Salon des Metiers d’Art. I usually end up going two times. I went the first time last week and picked up a few little things. I’ll be heading back very soon to scope out some other stuff and see if anything else catches my eye on gift ideas and such. I’ll be doing a haul post on it soon or some places that caught my eye if the haul isn’t particularly inspiring.
Signé Local – Le Vitrine du Fait au Quebec
Finally, for another local event is this one that I spontaneously found on a shopping outing with my husband at this shopping district called Quartier Dix30 in the suburbs. Every weekend, there are different vendors (for the most part) that sell their products from local arts and craft companies. Its pretty cool. I definitely have a mini haul post for this one as well and since I’m not a millionaire, I couldn’t get everything I wanted to but I’d like to highlight some really cool companies (and log them for future reference when I do have more disposable income).

That’s it for this Weekly Adventures!
Not exactly a ton of stuff but just a few moments here and there!
This will most likely be the last one as the next will probably do a 2017 in review!
One thought on “My Weekly Adventures #56”
I am still sad that I don’t get to go to the salon des métiers with you.. 😦 Maybe next year…
