City of the Day: Copenhagen, Denmark November 24 2015

For the month of November 2015 all Copenhagen prints are $5.00 off.  Enter 5OFF at checkout.  The home of Hans Christian Andersen, Copenhagen, Denmark is one of the most fairytale-like cities in Europe, especially with freshly fallen snow blanketed over the town. The Danish concept of "hygge" (or "coziness") is at its peak during the wintertime when locals spend their afternoons and evenings relaxing, drinking hot chocolate, and enjoying the beauty around them. Some of the top sights in Copenhagen include Tivoli Amusement Park, Christiansburg Slot, and Rosenborg Castle, which are all even more charming covered in snow. Don't miss out on Copenhagen's winter culture month, Wondercool, either. Wondercool occurs in February and includes concerts in unusual venues, art shows, and culinary events.

City of the Day: Edinburgh, Scotland November 24 2015

Edinburgh, Scotland is a gem of a city known for its widespread arts and theater culture. It is a great place to visit during the holidays, particularly because of its holiday light snow that includes fireworks illuminating the sky from Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyroodhouse. Bagpipes playing "Amazing Grace" around the Sir Walter Scott Monument serve even better than carolers.

If you need somewhere to stay in Edinburgh, fireplaces are continuously rekindled at the aronial Balmoral. The Caledonian Hilton Edinburgh is Scotland's answer to the Plaza and equally as opulent.

In the 16th century, sorceresses were burned at the stake beside the gates of Edinburgh Castle. Today, however, nothing scorches at the Witchery by the Castle, which stands on the site. The restaurant serves Loch Duart salmon and Gartmom Farm duck -- all cooked to perfection.
