Don’t celebrate Christmas? Or do, but don’t have a plan? Here are 10 fun things to do in Toronto to make your holiday memorable this year, whether shared with friends or strangers.

1) Ice-Skate
The rink at Nathan Phillips Square will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Christmas Day and Harbourfront’s lakeside Natrel rink will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Bring a thermos of hot cocoa and lace up.

2) Sing
At 1 p.m., sing your heart out at TIFF Bell Lightbox for The Sound of Music sing-a-long screening.

3) Volunteer
St. Paul’s Bloor Street hosts a lunch for 150 members in the community who have nowhere to go on Christmas Day. If you’d like to volunteer, here’s more information.

Christie Ossington Neighbourhood House hosts a Christmas lunch and dinner and they’re still looking for volunteers to help in the kitchen.

4) Bowl
Bathurst Bowlerama is open until 11pm. Wrangle some friends and head to Bathurst and Lawrence for 10-pin and beer.

5) Meet-up with Strangers
Don’t have friends or family in town to hang out with? No problem. Toronto has a vibrant meet-up community and you can scan the list to see what group most appeals to you. Right now, you can join a group of film lovers for the screening of Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, you can meet a group for Bubble Tea and Secret Santa exchange, there are a few Christmas dinner options and even an evening Ping-Pong club. Make new friends on

6) Midnight Grilled Cheese
Going for Chinese food or Dim-Sum on Christmas Day is a big tradition for many, but some of our favourite all-night diners will also be serving their usual comfort food fare. Grab a few pals and head to The Lakeview or Fran’s formidnight grilled cheese and fries.

7) Kubrick for Christmas
Instead of Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman, head to TIFF Bell Lightbox and ring in Christmas with Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket or 2001: A Space Odyssey. Showtimes here. 

8) World’s Best Commercials
If Kubrick is too dark, and you don’t feel like hitting a big blockbuster release, Bloor Hot Docs Cinema will be screening the 2014 Cannes Lions Awards: World’s Best Commercials. 

9) Late Night Whisky with Santa 

The Roof Lounge at Yorkville’s Park Hyatt boasts one of the best views in the city. Surely on Christmas, the view would be absolutely aglow with colourful lights. Sit back, have a whiskey and watch Santa whip across the city skyline.

10) Christmas Day Debauchery
Or you can always join the revelry at the Bovine Sex Club’s annual late night Christmas bash. Dancing and drinks until last call.
