6. Brisbane, Queensland, Australia by @visitbrisbane
Visit Brisbane shows us what Christmas is like in Australia. It's currently summer there, but that won't stop them spreading the Christmas joy! This shot is of city hall in Brisbane, that is projected upon with various images and animations. What a sight!
7. New York City, USA by @stephenwilkes
This has to be one of my favorite photos this Christmas. Taken by professional photographer Stephen Wilkes, this shot is of none other than Rockefeller Center in New York City, the people skating below and the joy inspiring tree. The beautiful time-honored tradition of Rockefeller Center's Christmas tree dates back to 1933. Isn't it wonderful that the tradition is still a part of the culture today?
Geneva, Switzerland by @parishilton
This photo was shared on Paris Hilton's Instagram account and was taken at Hotel President Wilson in Geneva, Switzerland. The teddy bear Christmas tree that is behind her is truly adorable.
