It is at about this time each year that I start to become nostalgic for the Christmas markets that dot major metropolises around Europe and long to visit a U.S. Christmas market. I loved warming up with gluhwein, eating gingerbread and currywurst and shopping for nutcrackers. I didn’t used to be a big fan of the holiday season but, after a visit to European Christmas markets,  I am always in the mood to celebrate.

The good news, you don’t have to go all the way to Europe for a traditional Christmas market. The bad news, as a resident of Los Angeles, there’s nothing very close by. Here is a list of some U.S. Christmas markets:
