Stockholm Christmas Market is another market steeped in tradition. The city's oldest neighborhood, Gamla Stan, operates the Christmas market in Stortorget Square. You can walk down Drottninggatan, one of the city's longest pedestrian streets, and marvel at all of the intricately decorated shop windows - they make a big deal of these. The market offers handcrafted toys and ornaments, and a vast array of native, seasonal foods. Also check out Stockholm's famous open air museum, Skansen, which is transformed for Christmas.

In need of information

My daughter returned from Stockholm and just 3 days ago gave me a beautiful ornament with Gamla Stan written on it - color palate is blues, greens and old town houses in burgundy, orange and green - no reds. Came in blue box with yellow ribbon clasp - no info except bar code - 330891 521036. Today, as I went to place it back in the box, I dropped the ornament and it of course is now broken into many pieces. I am devastated and would certainly love to find another to replace this one.
