bigstock-Merry-Christmas-everyone-Chri-49785464Travelers looking for that perfect Christmas getaway could consider spending their Christmas in any of the beautiful countries of Europe. European Christmases are known to be among the best in the world and they offer tourists a wonderful atmosphere, beautifully decorated streets, the occasional Christmas tree, grand celebrations and pristine white lights. December 25th is quite revered in Europe and you can expect to wake up with the sound of church bells and the hustle bustle of families walking to their favorite churches. Consider visiting one of the local churches of Europe during Christmas – it is probably going to be one of the best experiences of your lifetime. Christmas traditions across Europe might be different, but that does not mean that they are not fun. Here are some of the best ways to spend your Christmas in Europe.

London, UK Those who prefer huge crowds and a modern Christmas bigstock-Oxford-Street-London-Christmas-6614148atmosphere should simply hop over to London. The city is extremely popular for its beautiful productions and theatres such as The Twelve Days of Christmas, The Night Before Christmas, and The Snowman. What makes these shows unique is the fact they offer spectators with a fantastic blend of singing, dancing and humor along with beautiful fairy tale based themes. Those looking for something more traditional could always visit the English National Ballet. Talking about London, the festive spirit is not only limited to its productions and gala celebrations. You can also spend a lot of time checking out the beautiful Christmas decorations in the stores located on Regent Street and Oxford Street. The humongous Christmas tree which decorates Trafalgar Square each year is quite famous as well. A boat trip on the River Thames or an organized Christmas walk are other popular Christmas activities taking place in London. Remember to pre-plan your trips as you might also get access to lavish Christmas dinners in one of the beautiful castles located in the city.
