I passed through Madrid on the way home from Morocco last week, and was lucky to catch a Christmas market in the city's Plaza Major. While markets aren't as widespread here in the U.S. as they are abroad, there are some major cities keeping the tradition alive. I love holiday markets - there's something about drawing people out of their cozy homes on cold nights to celebrate that warms my heart. The mulled wine, handmade ornaments, and gingerbread - all of it feels both special and comfortingly traditional.

Is there one in your city? (Image: Dabney Frake)
