There is magic in the air at Christmas time, especially because of all the beautiful lights, sparkling decorations and happy, laughing families.
However, there are five specific places around the world that just take Christmas to the next level!
Vienna – Austria
The December month in Vienna is filled with giant Christmas trees in the town squares. Bring your family and friends and celebrate with a little glühwein, festive crafts and yummy roasted chestnuts.
Strasbourg – France
Strasbourg is better known as the “Capital of Christmas”. Why? Because every year this city comes alive with amazing Christmas activities, such as live performances, market stalls, storytelling and of course, carolling!
Quebec – Canada
Imagine cobblestones dusted with snow and old brick buildings that resemble a Christmas village. This is Quebec City in December! Every little store and cafe is donned with glittering Christmas decorations and shining lights.
San Miguel De Allende – Mexico
If you’re looking for something other than a white Christmas, San Miguel de Allende is the place for you. A warm weather Christmas filled with colourful parades, Mexican feasts, music and fiestas. The streets come alive in December with Donkeys, piñatas and people singing and dancing – what could be better?
