In many cities in Europe the holiday season starts in late November. Christmas markets open, shopping streets are lit with thousands of lights and store windows are festively decorated.
Baking cookies, drinking mulled wine, or listening to Christmas music - all these things enhance our anticipation of Christmas. But why does Christmas keep bringing a smile to most of our faces?
Some 100,000 people are expected on the second weekend of Advent at Dresden's Christmas market, known as the Striezelmarkt. A huge stollen about four meters long will be paraded through the historical old town.
During the Christmas season, sweet temptations like sugar-coated almonds and Stollen bread are more dangerously tantalizing than they look.
