The contemplative Christmas days are behind us and the year is now coming to an end. We wanted to see your #xmaswonders for getting into Christmas mood. So far, there has not been any snow in Berlin, but check out what our community has to offer on magical winter and Christmas photos. Enjoy our top 10 #xmaswonders .

Hot chocolate, homemade biscuits from the in-house Christmas bakery and a touch of coziness – what could be better in the pre-Christmas time? The cover image of fraeulein.liebefeld is a true Christmas wonder, still reflecting our need for home-baked biscuits which we can’t get rid of.

Although unfortunately without much snow in most parts of Germany this year – the magic of the Christmas markets is always something out of the ordinary. Mulled wine, punch, gingerbread, traditional craftsmanship and all the colorful lights. A visit to one of the many Christmas markets is always a true feast for the senses. i_love_the_winters shot this stunning photo at the Frankfurt Christmas Market on the Römer square. Wonderful!

Not only the Christmas markets are a feast for the eyes and magic for the senses, the rest of the cities are usually illuminated in fascinating light installations, like here in Wels in Upper Austria, photographed by dotandpixel .

Indeed, a creative, self-made Advent wreath should not be missing. Whether traditional or modern, your own preference knows no bounds. Isn’t it wonderful just to take the time to stay inside while it’s cold outside and to make your own Christmas miracle? akina_matata shows what it looks like.

Even our four-legged friends are infected by the Christmas magic and wait mostly patiently for Santa Claus and the gifts. lizzie.bear was certainly very courteous and even waiting right under the Christmas tree for the festive moment in order not to miss anything.

One of the most beautiful things at Christmas time is probably the gift-giving and of course the wrapping. Meggymelzer shows us how to wrap gifts beautiful and minimalistic. We find this a wonderful idea.

Not to be missed is a wintry Christmas walk after all the hefty and sweet treats that we stuff into ourselves during the festive season. meike_aus_berlin has found a pretty forest just for such a walk. So get out in the snowy forest.

And if you like it deep winter, with lots of snow and away from the hustle and bustle of the city, you should do it just like bergermargaret and head to the north of Finland to experience Christmas magic in a very intimate atmosphere.
