Santa in Toronto

Christmas Countdown: 1 Santa Claus

Naughty or nice, the big man comes tonight. With only one day to Christmas, it might be a little too late to get on Santa's good list, but I'm going to give it a shot and shovel a few driveways this morning - what with our third storm in less than a week!

Love it or hate it, for the past 12 days I've been searching all corners of Toronto for holiday exhibitionism, good or bad and posting a different photo essay documenting the annual make-over. A lot has changed in 12 days, hard to believe I couldn't find a real snowflake or snowman at the start of this series, and here we are with so much snow we don't know what to do with it.

Time to go do some last minute shopping and wrapping... Merry Christmas!
