The World's Best Christmas Markets (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

With Thanksgiving past, we are now thankful that we're officially allowed to daydream about and plan for the holiday season ahead. Whatever the holiday tradition you're looking forward to, gift-giving is likely to be a part of it. Think of these photos of some of the biggest and best Christmas markets around the world as a prelude to your own local holiday markets. Though we'd be lying if we said we weren't tempted to hop on a plane to Germany's original Weihnachtsmärkte too.

Whether global or local, what are your favorite Christmas/Holiday markets? Send us your photos and thoughts!
