“Next year, I’m going away for Christmas.”

I’ve been hearing this for years from a few Scrooges who are tired of decking the halls, wrangling a tree, and vacuuming up pine needles two months later. Honestly, I don’t get the fuss. I revel in opening up the Christmas storage box, getting everything out and firing up the lights. As far as decorations go–the more, the better.  It is Christmas, after all.   Albeit, I will admit to a few arguments about where the tree ornaments should hang.

Whatever you celebrate, whether you’ve got no commitments or just need to get away from it all with the family this year and looking to catch some spirit on someone else’s turf, there’s plenty of events happening all over the planet in December. Best of all, it’s wrapped and ready and waiting for you.

North, south, east or west, if you’re looking for inspiration,  Nat Geo’s Intelligent Travel has put together a nice stocking full of festivities with Event-o-Rama: 10 Must-Dos in December.
