You can still buy some treats at Tallinn's Christmas markets!

It always astounds me how quickly merchants pack up and remove their Christmas markets in Munich. They're thriving on Christmas Eve but come Boxing Day the majority of them are dismantled and gone. This is not the case in Tallinn however. The Christmas markets remain open all throughout the New Year period until the 6th of January. Traditionally,  the Christmas season begins in Estonia on the 21st of December with the feast of St. Thomas. This is where Estonians light candles and decorate their trees which remain in place until the Feast of The Three Kings on January 6.

There are still many treats to be had at Tallinn's Christmas markets. Here are a few temptations.
