Well, I think we're all going to be a little biased and perhaps uninformed because most of us have never been anywhere. Besides, it is hard for me to choose.

My first choice is right here in Salt Lake City:



Temple Square and the gardens surrounding it in downtown SLC get decked with lights they start putting up in July. When the snow flies and you stand before the Nativity scene it is an amazing place to be.

However, I also love NYC at Christmastime, though I've only been there once at that time of the year.

Also, a nod to Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco with all the boats decked in lights and their own brand of Christmas atmosphere -- FOG -- is always something to witness.

Jayish, thanks for reminding me. My family and I were in Disney World the week between Christmas and New year's a few years ago. It was amazing. We were in the Disney/MGM park and they used soap flakes as snow flakes while you are walking through the downtown areas at night. It gave it such a great ambience. They kids loved and so did the big kids(lol). I recommend it to anyone, if they get they chance.

Here in Austin they decorate the Hill Country, which has always been pleasant. In San Antonio they decorate the down town River Walk full of Christmas lights, and individuals can ride river boats throughout the city, listen to Christmas carols and even eat a dinner on a boat while enjoying the view. It's nice.

I've always wanted to visit Ireland or Scotland during Christmas. I just love the celtic Christmas traditions and if I ever have the opportunity I'd visit one of those two countries during the holidays before I pass on to the next life.
