Christmas Around The World

I love Christmas time, don’t you? I know there is a lot of commercialization around it, which I don’t like but I can’t help myself feeling joy inside as I am surrounded by Christmas lights and even the December chill and wearing boots and coats and eating really deliciously and giving gifts. Ok, I admit I also enjoy receiving gifts. Oh and of course Christmas trees! There is something just so wonderful about having a real tree in your home.

I also like the feeling around Christmas, I feel like people exude a really joyful energy around town. 

Christmas is pretty widely celebrated around the world, and for me, Germany takes the take with their absolutely amazing Christmas markets. I’d love to go there during this time one day. But so many other places have some pretty extravagant Christmases too. See some below:
