We hope you've already done something to get into the Christmas spirit! Maybe you've bought your Christmas stamps, or got the giant inflatable snowman out of the loft ready to put up this weekend.
We decided to visit the opening night of the Brussels Christmas Market - spread over the whole of the city centre, from the Bourse to the Grand Place to St Catherine's Place. It was a marvellous 24 hours with surprise Canadian dancing (and bison), eating all our Belgian favourites, and looking at fantastic lights and decorations.
And it's not long until we visit the Finnish Christmas market in East London - stay tuned!
