Let's get the disclaimers out of the way first.
It's 2020, the coronavirus pandemic is still wreaking havoc throughout the world, and many of the 50 great Christmas markets on our list this year will have gone virtual, been greatly impacted by social distancing, or outright canceled.
No matter what, these markets have established themselves as some of the best in the world, and this year we were sure to add in more of the world with markets in Asia, South America and Africa in addition to Canada, Europe and, of course, the United States.
So please enjoy this list, try to hit some of the markets that are still being held - um, call ahead - and put some of these destinations on your bucket list for 2021 and beyond, when we're back to normal.
