Christmas in Vienna

Christmas is a very important occasion for people in Vienna. It is a festive season looked forward to by the both local residents and foreign tourists.

Normally, Christmas is celebrated by families in their respective homes. Christmas eve marks the start of decorating the Christmas tree or Christbaum using crystal balls, bells, stars, colorful toys and sweet treats including chocolate and fruits. Candles are then lit up as the finishing touch to the design. Many families also display the Christmas crib which features the Holy Family in the manger where Jesus Christ was born.
