In the US, Christmas is a hugely celebrated holiday. Right after stores get cleared of Thanksgiving decorations, Christmas spirit takes their place. The buildings and streets are decorated with twinkling lights, sparkling Christmas trees are all around, and Christmas carols play wherever you go. You’ll see excited children standing in line to take their picture with Santa and smell the distinct aroma of hot chocolate and cinnamon swirling around. It’s a magical time of the year!
