Around the World for the Holidays

How are various cities decorated this holiday season? Let's live vicariously through photos and take a look...

Christmas lights like these hang above the busy thoroughfares of Oxford Street and Regent Street in London

In Paris, where winter usually brings more rain than snow, trees along the Champs-Elysées are sprayed to look snow-covered.

In the old part of Salzburg, Austria, a traditional Christmas market operates as snow falls.

Christmas at the Porta or door of Roma or Rome

Holiday decorations in Tokyo: a very creative lights presentation

Decorations are especially unique in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Googling "Christmas+New York" will no doubt get you the tree at the Rockefeller center. Here it is in all its glory.

And last but not least...Chicago! From top to bottom, the front of the Art Institute, inside the Field Museum, on Michigan Avenue in front of one of the Water Tower buildings
