Christmas is almost upon us and it’s time to get in that special holiday mood. I’m preparing to leave for Europe to explore the Christmas markets next week and this post was the perfect way to get excited about the trip. Definitely check out this piece to learn more about some of the amazing holiday traditions in Europe.
I broke tradition when I decided to highlight this post. Not only was it not written this week, it was written a year ago. But it’s so well done and features an important annual celebration that was observed a few days ago, I just had to share it. I was in Mexico last week during the Virgin of Guadalupe festival and the post helped me understand what was going on.
Ok, more Europe Christmas market fun to get me excited about my trip next week. We’re spending the week in Brussels which is almost certainly why I was drawn to this terrific post.
I love this post, mostly because I completely agree with it. The recent disparaging remarks about tourists have been insulting as someone who definitely considers himself a proud tourist. In fact, everyone is a tourist and it’s silly to start a semantics debate, as this post describes.
