Now for the part of winter we actually like: Christmas in the city. It all turns into grey slush and frozen digits after the holidays, so let’s get rolling.

Today at 6 p.m., the kickoff begins at the Eaton Centre, with the unveiling of the gorgeous Swarovski Crystal Wish Tree.

For the past six years, the purveyor of all things sparkly has teamed up with The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada to bring a festive spirit and good cause to the shopping season. The unveiling will be preceded by a number of musical performances from local talent, including Suzie McNeil, Brian Melo and the Bach Children’s Chorus.
