Sorry for the two Christmas posts in a row. I'm just excited about the season and looking forward to seeing Vilnius this decked out again.
Other than the springtime, the Christmas season is the most beautiful time in Vilnius. Lights are strung across the main streets, Christmas trees are set up in the main squares, and the sweet smell of roasting nuts wafts from the Christmas village.
This year the Christmas trees will be set up this Friday (November 29) in both the Town Hall Square and the Cathedral Square. The Charity Bazaar will take place in the Town Hall from November 29 through January 11. The Christmas market (I'm hoping there will be more crafts this year!) will begin on December 5 and run until December 30. For kids, there is the Christmas Tram, which takes you from Town Hall Square to Cathedral Square from November 29 through January 11.
I've written about shopping in Vilnius before; however, I thought it was time for a refresher in case you happen to need to pick up last minute gifts in Vilnius.

What is special to where you live? Any local gifts that you love?
