It’s finally here. The brightest, sparkliest, and most joyous time of the year. The whole world has been taken over by tinsel, fairy lights, and glittering baubles, and we bet that — wherever you are in the world right now — you aren’t too far away from the nearest Christmas tree. Some of us may go big with our decor, while some of us choose to keep it minimal and simple. But there’s no doubt that cities, department stores, parks, and public squares are putting up bigger, brighter and more beautiful Christmas tree decorations every year. Is there anything more wanderlust-worthy this time of year than a city that goes big for their festive celebrations? With their beautiful Christmas tree decorations and thousands of lights, these are the places pulling in the crowds (and Instagram likes) this year. Like moths to a (very extra) lamp, we’re all abuzz and longing to fly over to these Christmas decorations from cities all over the world.

Here, we’ve gathered some of the most lit-erally lit decorations from around the globe. Apart from regretting that terrible pun, we’re getting very much in the festive mood and hope you are too. We don’t know about you, but we’ll now be booking our flights to seek out these incredible lights and decorations next year. But for now, we wish you a very merry and bright Christmas!
