Don't Shop, Gawk! Toronto Zoo Free on Boxing Day

Here we are... so much lead up and before you even sweep up the wrapping paper, it's boxing day.

I, for one, will be avoiding any and all shopping, 'cause really, if the merch is so ugly the stores don't want to keep it around another week, I probably don't want to own it either. Closet and room space is much too limited.

If you want to get out and do something though, here's a cheaper-than-cheap option: The Toronto Zoo is offering FREE admission today.

It's their annual Christmas Treats Walk - yes, where the animals get their holiday treats -- and not only is it free but there's hot chocolate at the end of the walk as well. The event starts at 10am and organizers are only asking that you bring a non-perishable food item for the food bank.

Other than that, the ROM is open, but the AGO is closed. Enjoy the day.
