Our winter traditions
5 Eurail colleagues share winter tips from their home countries
Winter in Europe brings cold days and long nights, with some northerly towns not seeing the sun for weeks. But it’s not all darkness and gloom. Europeans have had centuries to craft the perfect winter survival kit of traditions, festivals and meals. There are big holidays like Christmas and New Year celebrated across the continent, but also quirks and surprises more numerous than Europe’s countries and languages. We asked our diverse Eurail team to tell us how their home countries endure and enjoy the winter season.
