Best Places to Spend the Christmas Holidays

Christmas is fast approaching, and with it comes your Christmas holiday break! There are a lot of options where to go to spend your Christmas holidays. You can go to Europe to celebrate a charming “White Christmas”. You can also escape the chill of the winter season by going to Asia and Australia and go swimming in the white sand beaches and make sand castles instead of snowmen like those who you’ve left behind at home.

Here are some Airlines Northwest 2011 Holiday Vacation suggestions for the coming Christmas Season.

Quebec, Canada

If you want to have a feel of a European Christmas but hates long flights, then going to Quebec is the best for you. Quebec has lots of snow during December making it one of the best places to visit for a winter holiday and they observe special Christmas traditions too like the Europeans especially the French.

London, England

London is the best place to shop during the Christmas season. Every year starting November 4, the street of Oxford is decorated with thousands of Christmas lights to welcome shoppers and merry makers alike. You can find almost everything in Oxford Street from baked goodies to Christmas decorations to clothes, toys and the likes.

Hong Kong, China

Though Hong Kong does not have very unique Christmas traditions as the people are mostly Buddhist and does not celebrate Christmas in the usual sense, it makes it up for it in terms of shopping sprees and Christmas Bazaars. This is the best place to get affordable Christmas gifts for the whole family. Every year, thousands of visitors and shoppers are greeted by the wonderfully decorated Victoria Harbor and the 30 meter high Swarovski crystal Christmas tree in the Central District.

New York City

No Christmas destinations list is complete without New York City. The “Most Famous City in the World”, is also the home of probably the most popular Christmas tree, the Christmas tree in the Rockefeller Center. The Rockefeller Christmas tree has almost 5 miles of Christmas lights and these are usually lighted a week after Thanksgiving.

Sydney, Australia

December is summer time in Australia and people celebrate Christmas in the beach. You don’t have to worry about icy waters for the Australian weather during December is at around 25 degree Celsius. So if you are tired of the cold winters in your home country, go to Australia and walk in the warm sands in the beautiful beaches of Sydney.
