Culture and traditions often hold special meaning for people because such events trigger memories and a sense of belonging within a certain society. One of Christmas’s most loved traditions is to shop at Christmas markets. It is the one place that is merrier than your own home decor. They are packed full of nostalgia, whimsy, and fun – and are incredibly sentimental, even if you’ve never experienced one before! It sounds incredibly cheesy. From Germany, to Switzerland, to New York, it’s difficult to find a coveted destination that doesn’t hold an impressive annual advent market. In fact, some have grown so popular, they’ve become tourist attractions in their own right.
