    Thank you as usual for the informative email. In the email, under the section „Swiss Christmas Markets“, I believe you inadvertently wrote that many Christmas Markets open as of December 21st. I believe you meant November 21st.

      Dear Jean you’re absolutely right! Apologies that should read from 21st November! Thanks for your speedy notification! 🙂
