Just a few days to Christmas! If you’re feeling bummed out by windy rainstorms, let me whisk you away to more picturesque places while you drift off to sleep. Here are a few cheerful, snow-filled stories to boost your holiday mood.

Travel to the dead center of Christmas cheer with a cozy trip to a traditional German Christkindlmarkt. There will be beautiful crafts, delicious foods, and seasonal music to celebrate the season. Read (beautifully) by Simon.

A Snowy Evening at the New York Public Library
Not interested in Christmas stuff, but still into the wintry vibe? Experience a dream nighttime visit to the flagship branch of the New York Public Library.
