It's Christmas time! If you're in Berlin then it's very hard to escape this fact. It might be dark and cold(ish) outside but a bellyful of Glühwein, Christmas biscuits and a dose of Christmas cheer makes for a fun December! Here are a couple of things that make Berlin feel so Christmassy.
The Berlin streets are awash with Christmas trees, disposed of in heaps at every junction. Overnight they crawl into the street and cause havoc with the morning traffic. While the smell may be overwhelmingly Christmassy, there is one clear message - Christmas is so last year. It's time to move on with 2015.
