My Aunt is going to Germany for Thanksgiving this year. I am sooo jealous. Europe really decks out for the holidays and not in a cheezy way like America with our huge rainbow lights and tinsel. They do it classy and festive! I remember studying in Florence in college and I got super homesick once December rolled around because the streets were so beautifully decorated it made me reminiscent for home and the holidays.
Here's some pix of the German Christmas Markets. Don't you just want to be there?
