Christmas Market Spotlight

Christmas is just around the corner. I feel like all of a sudden it’s here and with it comes all the glorious Christmas Markets!!!! I love the Christmas markets. Here are a few of my favorites.

York, England

There is no doubt that Europeans have the best Christmas markets. The York market is one of my favorites. Not only is York easy to walk around but it’s medieval streets and architecture really give you a cozy Christmas feeling. The York Christmas Market ends on Dec 22nd.

Edinburgh, Scotland

Edinburgh is one of my favorite places and during the Christmas season the city puts on quite a show. From the Christmas market to various Christmas themed entertainment there is plenty for all ages to do and see. One of my favorite things to do is a holiday light sing-along called Silent Night. This year it’s on the Royal Mile. The city shuts down a portion of the street and sets up a light display. You get a set of headphones and have a silent or not so silent sing along with a bunch of strangers. It’s just fantastic. The Edinburgh Christmas ends just after the New Year on Jan 4th.

New York, NY

People love NYC at Christmas and why not! From the department store windows at Macy’s to the Tree at Rockefeller Center people flock here from around the world. Although midtown is great make sure to explore other areas. Union Square has an amazing Christmas market and Chelsea Market turns into a Christmas bazaar. New York has something for everyone. They even host an Underground Holiday market at Columbus Circle station.
