3. Las Vegas
If you’re looking for bright lights then head to Las Vegas. Fountains dance to the beat of Christmas songs and the decorations and lights of Bellagio instil some serious holiday spirit. In fact, the whole city looks like one big lit up display!
Although not a Christian country, Japan still likes to impress with its light displays. Go to the Starlight Garden in Midtown, which is a walkway covered in thousands of pretty, white lights – just like snow.
Technically summertime in Australia, a Christmas celebration in Sydney is certainly a warmer way of doing things. Check out the brilliant decorations at Queen Victoria Building, the choir at Pit Street Mall and the festive projections at Sydney Town Hall. BBQ Christmas dinner, anyone?
Go to Amsterdam for a traditional European Christmas celebration. Wander along the canals, which look particularly pretty when it’s icy. There are also markets scattered around for you to enjoy a mulled wine and live music.
Father Christmas isn’t just for kids, you can see him for yourself on a holiday to Finland. You can also go on a husky sledge ride or see if you can spot the Northern Lights. Later on you can snuggle up in your cabin with a tasty cheese fondue.
8. Quebec City
This Canadian city is great because you get some European charm in the snowy, northern conditions of Canada. Walk through the quaint streets, guided by traditional lights and local warm holiday wishes.
How about just going all out and following the winter sun? You and your partner could be sunbathing on the beach with a cocktail in hand while exchanging gifts. All of the Canary Islands offer year round sun and Lanzarote is the biggest.
Book into a luxury hotel and do Christmas in style. Treat yourselves during a trip at Harrods, take in the light displays that are pretty much everywhere and enjoy a crisp walk around one of the many parks on Christmas Day.
Christmas can be incredibly romantic if you share it with the one you love. Do it in a beautiful setting to make the most of it.
