Few things are more romantic —even to Montrealers— than going out on a stroll in the midst of a snowstorm. Whether in lavish Outremont or the romantic banks of the St. Lawrence River in Old-Montreal, a snowy Montreal is a dreamy Montreal. All dwellers hear is the giggling of a child enjoying the exceptionally late curfew and the crunching sound of their footsteps on the fresh layer of snow, as the city quiets down to watch Mother Nature at work. Each sight is more jaw dropping and swoon-worthy than the other, especially Notre-Dame-Basilica with its blue and white holiday lights. It is quite a fascinating show to see locals go about their business with a faint smile on their faces, consistently amazed by the show.
