10 – Montreal , Canada
Montreal is a city that thrives in winter, and its celebration of Christmas caps the solstice season with indoor and outdoor activities, many of which continue throughout the week till New Year’s Day.
9 – Paris , France
I just can’t describe Paris in a few words . Just give it a search on Google for more information , It’s just so big and full of attractions.
8 – Sydney , Australia
No snow, no sleigh. But there’s Santa, stars, stores, trees, treats, and joy. It’s summer in Sydney and that’s when Christmas happens Down Under . I made a hard decision placing Sydney here – Paris was also a number 9 candidate .
7 – Munich , Germany
Enjoy a traditional Christmas goose dinner, a slice of stollen, and a glass of hot spiced wine , while listening to church bells ringing through the Alps. You may enjoy the city – Marienplatz market ,the Christmas Lights , Deutches and BMW museums etc or visit the surroundings like Fussen town or Neschwanstein Castle . The Alps are also waiting for you .
6 – Quebec , Canada
If you’re dreaming of a white Christmas, the place to go is Quebec, Canada . You feel as though you’re in Europe, but without the long transatlantic flight or jet lag. With its distinctive French flavor and flair, Quebec offers a great getaway anytime of year. 20 inches of glistening white stuff, highlighted by festive Christmas decorations is just your bonus …
5 – Tromso , Norway
What ? Tromhow ? Where is that ? At the North Pole ? Oh yes .. „The snowy city island of Tromso offers unparalleled views of the Northern Lights and a chance to say you’ve been to the North Pole ,well, the Arctic Circle, anyway — for Christmas. Plus, there’s dogsledding, great food, and a mountaintop cable car” a quote from that same article on a thousand websites . J
4 – London , England
Holyday Lights , Christmas Windows , the New Year Parade ,Christmas Carols , Trafalgar Square Christmas Tree , Santa’s Grottos , Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park , Festive Fairs , English Ballet , The Pudding Race … the Christmas is just different here . Give it a try .
3 – Chicago , United States
„The Windy City embraces yuletide cheer to the max, with a million holiday lights along bustling Magnificent Mile, Christkindlmarket, a huge outdoor German crafts market with beer and fare like sausages to stoke your fire, a towering handmade Christmas tree, and Navy Pier’s Winter WonderFest, a holiday-themed amusement park and indoor skating rink.”
The Magnificent Mile Lights Festival officially kicks off the Christmas season in Chicago, with numerous fun family activities and the highlight, the Mickey Mouse parade illuminating over one million lights along Michigan Avenue
2 – New York , United States
1 – Vienna – Austria
From imperial palaces to world famous cafes, Vienna has plenty to keep visitors entertained all year round. But it is during the festive season that the Austrian capital really comes into its own. The World’s Best ski resorts , mountains and most amazing views are just minutes away from the city . I would personally go to one of North American destinations for any holiday , but Vienna is just the best place to spend Christmas .
