Christmas and New Year is a great time to visit Europe. One thing to bear in mind is that in much of Europe, Christmas Eve is a bigger deal than Christmas Day. Children open their presents at midnight, after a big meal with their family. You'll find shops and bars open in many cities on Christmas Day, especially in the evening. Also, often New Year's celebrations start with the bells at midnight, followed by partying until the early hours of the morning. If you are drunk at midnight, you've probably peaked too soon.
