From our spas to our holiday markets, we Canadians love to take inspiration from our Scandinavian friends when it comes to enjoying life. And this weekend, you can completely immerse yourself in the culture at the Swedish Christmas Fair in Toronto.

Hosted by the Swedish Women’s Educational Association (SWEA) Toronto, this annual fair attracts thousands of people each year, “who come to experience Swedish Christmas food, design, folk art, crafts, and traditions,” the description says.

You’ll get to indulge in delicious Swedish food at the café, snack on “the world’s best candy and chocolate”, and sip on traditional beverages at the Glögg (Swedish mulled wine) stand.
