So Christmas finally arrived, and I hope all of you are enjoying this day with your loved ones, anywhere in the world. At the beginning of the month I launched a Christmas Photo Contest here on the blog, where anyone could send me a photo of the cities they live in or recently visited, decorated for Christmas.

Today is time to reveal the winners, the top 10 photos I received throughout the month, and at the same time, get the feeling of how celebrating this time of year around the world is. Let’s get going:
