On November 15th we made our way downtown for Toronto Eaton Centre’s official tree-lighting ceremony. In previous years, we’ve become accustomed to the traditional Swarovski tree, but Toronto Eaton Centre has a new holiday theme this year and introduced a new 50-foot LED Christmas tree (in addition to the six giant reindeer from last year).
Celebrity host Jeanne Beker alongside the one-and-only Santa Claus helped kick off the festivities for the night. Kreesha Turner also performed her favourite Christmas carols for the hundreds of on-lookers…

Before the tree-lighting ceremony we stopped by Guest Services and picked up our complimentary shop! card (thanks Toronto Eaton Centre!) so we could start our Christmas shopping. We checked out the newly renovated Harry Rosen store along with one of our favourite brands Scotch & Soda and of course our friends at Roots. If you don’t know where to begin your Christmas shopping, Toronto Eaton Centre is offering a new Personal Shopping Service. This FREE 90 minute service runs from November 20 – December 22, Tuesdays – Saturdays between 11am – 6pm. Participants can win 1 of 3 $75 shop! cards by tweeting about their experience using the #ShopTEC hashtag.
