Visiting Capitals

Visiting big European capitals that are keeping the tradition of Christmas and festive atmosphere on their big city squares is something that can’t go wrong. Booking accommodation near the city center up ahead and planning to spend the New Year’s Eve with the rest of the locals gathered on the main city square is a great experience.

If you want to keep it classy, you should consider other European resorts like Zermatt in Switzerland or famous French or Italian ski resorts.

Last but not the least, don’t forget that it’s summer on the other end of the globe, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t hit the slopes for Christmas Eve on Australia for example. Ski resorts like Perisher are becoming more and more popular every year. Don’t miss on the enjoyable adventure you can have there and on accommodating yourself in one of the beautiful apartments you can see here.

Visit Santa

If your little ones fancy the entire story around Santa Claus, and you want to make it an unforgettable Christmas for them, then why don’t you arrange them to meet Santa himself?

Lapland province in Finland is traditionally considered as Santa’s homeland. That’s where ice is throughout the whole year but that’s where it’s the most crowded and busiest on the New Year’s Eve.

You can make your children (or even yourself, why not) attend the Elf Academy, where they can learn how to be of proper help to Santa. Also, you can even join Ms. Santa and give her a helping hand while she makes Christmas cookies for kids from all over the world.

At the end of it all, Santa is who we all secretly crave to see when clocks hit midnight.
