In Canada, a white Christmas is a given in most cities. Living in Ottawa, I can’t remember a time when we didn’t have at least a little bit of snow on the ground. The idealistic white Christmas referred to in all the Christmas songs is something we tend to take for granted. When I lived in Ireland and travelled throughout Europe the first time, snow was one of the things I would get asked about the most. Nearly everyone expressed jealousy of our White Christmases.

So today, on Christmas Eve, I decided to put together this post as a part of the Travel Advent Calendar series, of a Canadian White Christmas in Quebec City. I had the pleasure of visiting this beautiful city a couple weeks ago, and thanks to the kindness of Quebec City Tourism and the Auberge Saint-Antoine hotel we had a fantastic festive mini-break . Snow on the ground, lights on the trees, and decorations galore; it’s the perfect setting for a fairytale white Christmas.
