For the twelve days of Christmas, I’ll post one list of 5 Christmas-related things each day. Today: 5 of my favourite “I-wish-I-lived-there-or-at-least-could-go-visit-there”-Winter Wonderland-places!
1. New York, at Christmas time
You can blame this one completely and utterly on Home Alone 2 – no, it wasn’t as good as the first movie, but man, that scene when Kevin is sitting in front of the giant Christmas tree – I want to go there! And the scene at the end! (also, Friends made me want to see it, as did How I Met Your Mother, and Girl Meets World, and man, there really are a lot of shows that take place in New York, aren’t there?
2. Hyde Park Winter Wonderland
Let’s be honest – this sounds like, basically, the best thing ever. It’s London, it’s everything Christmas and snowy and magical in one place – and did I mention it’s London??

You find them everywhere – Christmas cards, Christmas stories, Christmas movies…. I wish I could go to a place where Christmas really looks like this – but seeing how as I sincerely doubt it even exists, I guess I’ll just have to settle for looking at these types of pictures instead…
One day, I promise you, I’m going to Sweden, or Norway, or Finland, or Canada, or somewhere else up north, and enjoy the cold and the snow and the darkness of winter!
Harry Potter, for me, is such a Christmas-sy series to read, or watch. It’s just one of those stories that almost feels like coming home. And of course, Christmas at Hogwarts is just one of those things that I simply cannot get enough of – I mean, have you seen the Great Hall?
So there you have it, 5 of my favourite Winter Wonderlands, places which I would love to see at Christmas time. Are there any others you feel I should include? What places would you most like to spend this time of the year? Or even just see? Be sure to let me know below!
