Christmas is a time when we come together in good spirits to celebrate the birth of Christ. It is the time when loved ones gather around the same table, enjoy hearty meals, and celebrate. However, sometimes you just don’t have family to go back to or you just want to make this Christmas special for the ones you love.
Flying off to a foreign destination is probably the best solution for both the above mentioned scenarios. Christmas transforms even the most fantastic cities in the world into winter wonderlands – that’s right, it’s winter everywhere else during Christmas except here!
