It's that time of year again—let the Christmas markets spring up like deranged candy-cane-striped mushrooms. You know the deal: there will be cute regional crafts (souvenir shopping!), gingerbread (yum!), mulled wine and mulled beer, wintertime snacks and gifts and contests. You will also have the ability to witness the Poznan Ice Festival full of ice sculptures, the ice city, and a Christmas fire show.
