Normandy has hosted lots of Christmas markets since the end of November. Although many of the smaller ones lasted just a few days, some of the larger ones, such as in Caen and Rouen, will remain open a little longer. Ice skating, Father Christmas, Christmas trees, lights, hot chocolate and mulled wine have featured heavily this year. Normandy hasn't had any snow though as it has been too mild.
