Amsterdam Christmas Overview

Christmas_s165x110

Though Christmas is a Christian holiday, it has taken on a much more universal and magical meaning on the global calendar thanks to images of Santa Claus, carolers, winter wonderlands, and scrumptious meals.

In many cities, the weather outside is pretty frightful during the Christmas season. Such is usually case in Amsterdam, where families everywhere from Dam Square to Jordaan gather to exchange gifts, sing some classic Xmas tunes, and drink a whole lot of spiked eggnog.

In addition to family time, the Xmas season in Amsterdam means a potpourri of fantastic Christmas parties for both college students and adults. Bars around the city sport their finest red and green, and offer enough yuletide, brew, and ambiance to bring out the Christmas cheer in the Scroogiest of Ebenezer’s.

Christmas events pop up all around Amsterdam at locations like the Museumplein. The area boasts an ice rink, Christmas lights, craft-making, and an illuminated tree. Over in the Red Light District, there are various adult shops that are lit with more risqué fair. Citizens looking to stay on Santa’s nice list should stay at the Museumplein.

It’s not hard to get in good spirits during the Christmas season in Amsterdam in 2018. Make sure to have a jolly time at one of these great events!
