In the “Market” for Christmas Cheer

While Christmas markets stock plenty of wonderful souvenirs to be purchased and enjoyed in future seasons, the markets are also places to attain and take home more meaningful memories. Germany and Switzerland are home to some of the best-known Christmas markets internationally. The Christkindlesmarkt in Nuremberg, Germany, stands as the benchmark for yuletide fairs internationally, inspiring similar fairs in Chicago and Philadelphia. Other festivals in North America, meanwhile, artfully blend time-honored old world customs with distinctive new world regional spins.
