White Christmas at Yorkdale Mall

I was teased into attending the unveiling of Yorkdale's Swarovski Crystal Wonderland last Wednesday by the promise, on their website, that it would become one of Canada's most spectacular holiday displays.

OK... it's nowhere as grand as I had imagined. But it is pretty, and white, and relatively sparkly. The perfect background for a photo with Santa.

I was more impressed by the gorgeous strands of crystal balls hanging under special lighting from the high ceiling in the corridor by the Rainforest Café (north-east side of Yorkdale Shopping Centre).

Good to know: The Rainforest Café offers a Family Night every Wednesdays from 5 p.m. to closing time, where kids 10 years and under pay $4 for a meal, with the purchase of one adult entrée. If you've never been, it is the restaurant where a crocodile greets you by the entrance, you enter through a huge aquarium and there's lots things to look at inside (including a simulated thunderstorm). A real adventure for young kids.
