New Photo Contest: What Does Christmas Look Like in Your Host Country?

December 4, 2016

A number of countries around the world celebrate the Christmas holiday season. Though some cities celebrate in similar ways to your home country, other cities in the world do it in their own unique and special way.

Even cities that don’t get much snow put up decorations. It might be that stores just want to get your attention to come into their stores and buy things, but these holiday decorations help make the holiday season brighter and more joyful for its citizens (especially for the expat community living there).

Being away from friends and family during this time of the year is difficult, so having something to remind you of your home is a good thing. You try to keep some of your Christmas holiday traditions while living abroad, but inevitably you always create some new ones.

So, how does your host country celebrate the Christmas holiday season?  Submit your photo to us and enter our photo contest! All participants receive free premium membership to our website!
