Christmas markets open on first day of Advent

Christmas markets officially opened and Christmas trees were lit in many areas, namely public squares, on Sunday, the first day of Advent, the season marked by Christians preparing for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. The weekend saw a marked interest by both locals and tourists, for example, at Prague's Old Town Square, a traditional site for Christmas markets, where mulled wine and roasted chestnuts are sold as well as other food and drink and where various attractions can be viewed.
