Canada/Montreal, Trees covered with snow!
Snow interacts with vegetation in two principal ways, vegetation can influence the deposition and retention of snow and, conversely, the presence of snow can affect the distribution and growth of vegetation. 
Tree branches, especially of conifers intercept falling snow and prevent accumulation on the ground. Snow suspended in trees ablates more rapidly than that on the ground, owing to its greater exposure to sun and air movement.

Canada/Montreal, Christmas Time!
Although the month and date of Jesus' birth are unknown, by the early-to-mid fourth century the Western Christian Church had placed Christmas on December 25, a date that was later adopted in the East.Today, most Christians celebrate on December 25 in the Gregorian calendar, which has been adopted almost universally in the civil calendars used in countries throughout the world.
However, some Eastern Christian Churches celebrate Christmas on December 25 of the older Julian calendar, which currently corresponds to January 7 in the Gregorian calendar, the day after the Western Christian Church celebrates the Epiphany. This is not a disagreement over the date of Christmas as such, but rather a preference of which calendar should be used to determine the day that is December 25.

Canada/Montreal, Cold snowy winter started. 
Winter brings cold, snowy, windy, and, at times, icy weather, with a daily average ranging from −9 in January. However, some winter days rise above freezing with rain.
Usually, snow covering some or all bare ground lasts on average from the first or second week of December until the last week of March. While the air temperature does not fall below −30 °C every year, the wind chill often makes the temperature feel this low to exposed skin.

Canada/Montreal, Cabot Square in autumn!
Cabot Square opened in 1870 is an urban square in Montreal that located in the Shaughnessy Village neighborhood close to Pepsi Forum.
It takes the form of an urban green space and may otherwise be described as a park, though its status as a public square means there is a generally unenforceable curfew.
An access point to the Montreal Underground City can be found at the Northwestern corner of the square.
Installation artwork and conceptual sculptures have been integrated into the square as part of a broad urban beautification plan.
The monument to Italian-born English explorer John Cabot, was unveiled on 1935.

Canada/Montreal, Montreal Forum!
Montreal Forum (Le Forum de Montréal), the most storied building in hockey history, was an indoor arena located facing Cabot Square. It was the home of the Montreal Canadiens - HABS - from 1926 to 1996. The club's official name is le Club de hockey Canadien. The Forum was built in 159 days. Located at the northeast corner of Atwater and Ste-Catherine West, the building was historically significant as it was home to 24 Stanley Cup championships (22 of the Canadiens and two of the Montreal Maroons, for whom the arena was originally built). 
It was then completely gutted and converted into a downtown entertainment center called the Pepsi Forum, consisting of an AMC Theatres multiplex theater (now Cineplex Odeon), shops and restaurants. Center ice has been recreated in the center of the complex complete with a small section of the grandstand, along with a statue of a fan leaning forward in delight, while original seats are used as benches throughout the complex.
