Quebec City Christmas Eve
Christmas Eve in Quebec City, Canada, every year in December Old Québec is transformed into a real Christmas village, with its cobblestone lanes covered with beautiful fluffy white snow, splendid illuminations and decorated Christmas trees. Markets and shows keep the streets lively, whilst mulled wine continue to warm you in this cold and wonderful winter.
Edinburgh Christmas Eve
Edinburgh is a perfect Christmas destination. From a gloomy medieval Scottish capital, Edinburgh transforms into a giant cheerful and lively Christmas Market. Yes, almost the entire city centre is occupied by the Christmas market and this is amazing. Edinburgh Christmas market has a couple of attractions, e.g. a huge Ferris wheel, an ice-skating rink and many others, especially for small children. Even though that it doesn’t usually snow in Edinburgh, the atmosphere is still great!
New York Christmas Eve
New York during Christmas is cold, windy, and insanely crowded – there’s no other place I’d rather be to enjoy Christmas Evening. You can ice skate at Wollman rink in Central Park like the characters of Serendipity, with the skyline of NYC in front of you. The top of Empire State building is lit up with red and green lights during November and December. You can even talk to the giant Christmas tree in front of Rockefeller Center. And when you get cold, stop by Serendipity 3 for their famous frozen hot chocolate, the most appropriate drink during Christmas season or have dinner at one of the many NYC restaurants.
Zurich Christmas Eve
Zurich, a compact Alpine city displays more than 12,000 crystal lights on the Christmas season on every November 21. Grab a hot chocolate and explore the beautiful galleries on Rämistrasse, visit Conelli Christmas Circus, or listen to a holiday concert in the Romanesque style at Grossmünster church. Enjoy a relaxed Christmas Eve and Christmassy shopping at magical Christmas market in Zurich.
