Virtual Light Shows and Markets around the World!
Volunteer Markham has found some of our favourite places around the world to bring the holiday spirit into your home! Click on the links below to join in.
Don’t forget that Santa lives in Finland, so let’s start here:
Live Webcam to Santa’s official home town. This northern Finnish city offers a virtual tour of their Christmas decorations and markets. Cross into the Arctic Circle and watch the beauty of the holidays here!

While we may be unable to visit many Christmas markets and light shows at home, we can enjoy other parts of the world. Especially Europe, where buildings and neighbourhoods that are centuries old get decorated every year. So, let’s check them out!
This video takes you on a whirlwind tour of some of London’s most famous areas for Christmas decorations. Plus, the tour is compatible with VR glasses, if you really want to immerse yourself in some British holiday cheer.
This tour of Christmas markets (including one beside a massive old church), pretty much exactly fits our idea of a ‘traditional’ winter wonderland. The lighting, ambience and the setting itself make this a perfect tour trifecta.
This 360-degree tour of Charlottenburg Palace’s Christmas Market in Berlin is also the perfect fit for a holiday movie. Admit it- you can see yourself catching up to your crush in the square and asking them to join you for some mulled wine. We feel the same.
Meanwhile, Macy’s has really locked down the holiday cheer for North America (and Thanksgiving cheer, for that matter). Check out this amazing mix of a holiday light show and a Christmas concert rolled into one convenient package.
If you’re feeling nostalgic (and proudly Canadian), then maybe you should check out some of Toronto’s Santa Claus parade highlights. As one of the most popular parades in all of North America, this is sure to put a smile on your face. Personally, we’re diving into the 1990 broadcast for equal parts hilarity and nostalgia.
Our neighbours to the South also have much to share:
