The Christmas period in Holland
The month of December is a very pleasant time in Holland. As soon as Sinterklaas leaves, the streets and shops are decorated with lights and Christmas trees. In the weeks leading up to the holidays, Christmas songs enhance the mood in shopping malls and restaurants. Christmas markets and ice-skating rinks appear on squares in the city. And if the weather is right, you might even see snow….
