Czech Christmas Eve and Christmas are celebrated on December 24th and 25th, respectively. While this special holiday is celebrated with family, visitors to the Czech Republic can also enjoy public Christmas festivities, like the the Christmas tree in Old Town Prague and the famous Prague Christmas Market.
Picture the glow of medieval squares illuminated by thousands of sparkling lights. Imagine gingerbread-style stalls where artisans offer traditional crafts that threaten to banish gifts of boring neckties and fruitcakes for eternity. Marvel at iPod-toting children falling under the spell of low-tech charms like wooden toys, ice rinks and vintage merry-go-rounds.
