Christmas in Germany

What I Loved: I loved how festive it was -- the Christmas markets and hot gluhwein were my favorite. In Germany, many families celebrate Christmas for two days, visiting people on December 25 and December 26, so I loved that, too. And though people don't really decorate their houses with lights or bake Christmas cookies, it's still probably my favorite place to be at Christmastime.

What I Didn't Like: I don't think there's anything I didn't like. I missed being with my own family that year, but it was a great experience.
