Holiday Events: Christmas Markets

So while I was in Toronto, a clerk in one of the stores I walked into mentioned that the German Christmas Market coming up was to be held in the distillery section of the city. I brushed it off, as I would be leaving and wouldn’t be able to go. When I arrived back in NY, I noticed that there were advertisements for holiday markets popping up around the smaller parks. Therefore, I thought it would be cool to give details on these markets in NYC as well as in Philadelphia since I sort of live here too.
I realize that a lot of college students will be back in the city and looking for things to do. 
So… you are welcome . . Merry Christmas!
