Following yesterday’s post from Germany, today I’m sharing a handful of Christmas “postcards” from around the world. Being home for the holidays is always a heartfelt experience of family traditions and togetherness, but being away from home can introduce you to new rituals, friends and ways to celebrate. Even in countries and cultures that don’t celebrate Christmas, locals often acknowledge the day in a special way to make travelers feel at home. Japan is my favorite example, where tiny origami Santas were placed on our breakfast trays on Christmas morning at the ryokan where we were staying. Such a memorable gesture!

Have you spent the holidays abroad? Do you have a favorite memory or moment?

More tomorrow,
Kelly
