“World’s Best Christmas Markets”

Its that time of the year when people all over the world are counting down days for their holidays to begin. Its December, and Christmas is just around the corner. The excitement of Christmas holidays is the same for all the age groups be it spending quality time with family, or receiving & sending gifts, or shopping for new clothes & Christmas goodies, or setting up the Christmas Tree and the list goes on and on. There are so many things to do during Christmas especially in the Western World that you are spoilt for choices. Be it the historic squares of London & New York or the beautiful gardens of Prague & Copenhagen, one can just soak up the festive atmosphere by strolling down the streets admiring the beautiful street lighting & decor. To me the best way to enjoy Christmas is to visit a local Christmas Market and relish on local delicacies and traditions, one can pick up unique presents while sipping hot mulled wine or savoring a  ginger bread. This article showcases some of the best Christmas Markets around the globe through pictures. If you are thinking of going on a vacation, go through the pictures and decide for yourself.
