Interested in Winter Festivals?
Although you can find winter festivals around the world, it is perhaps in Europe that they are most celebrated, as people drink mulled wine to keep themselves warm.
Not in a festive mood? Head to the Netherlands for the Amsterdam Lights and watch the city glow with fantastic lightworks. In North America, head for the Quebec Winter Carnival and join Bonhomme and his friends playing around on the snow and ice. In Asia? The Harbin Ice Festival in China is the world's largest snow and ice festival.
Winter Music Festivals
Winter festivals are not just about stollen and mulled wine, the Winchester Christmas Market is a great celebration of classical music and carols played in the surrounds of the wonderful Winchester Cathedral.
