The Markham Home for the Holidays is celebrating 37 years this year!

It has been a dream of mine for many years to have a show dedicated to Christmas. I am a self-confessed “Christmasaholic.” I love the sparkle, the sights, sounds and the wonderful aromas of Christmas. I am like an excited little kid at heart when it comes to Christmas. This year’s show is still the same, in terms of having, fabulous, affordable gifts galore, but with a lot more Christmas themes, food ideas, gift ideas and of course, Santa himself!
