      Sparkling lights, beautiful decorations on the Christmas tree and a jolly good cheer. Christmas season is in the air, and to many, it is the most wonderful time of year. Preparing for the holiday can also pass at the blink of an eye. One minute you're trimming the tree, watching the festive advertisements on the telly showcasing the best toys and greatest gifts; the next, you're counting down the New Year. And so it goes, one merry year after the next. The truth is, there is so much more to Christmas than that.

      Christmas is also about family, travelling and taking a holiday. Last year, 3,630 eDreams customers travelled on December 19 and 20, marking the two busiest travel days for Christmas. Some were travelling home to the familiar aroma of mum's home-cooked meals, family time and the sensation of being transported to yesteryear when as a child, they were sleepless thinking about the gifts waiting to be opened the next morning. Christmas is also a great time to take an adventure, to treat yourself for a year of great work and to go on holiday to one of your most dreamed of destinations. Whichever type of holiday traveller you may be, eDreams has compiled a study detailing your top destinations during the Christmas season. Find out which locations were most visited during the Christmas holiday and be inspired for this year's journey!
