agreed, a place like Chicago or Boston with snow around Christmas can't be beat.

Too much commercialization of Christmas in cities. Christmas is a family thing more than not, and families function better in suburbs and rural. Christmas seems closer to its real meaning in those settings

Decorations? I've seen them up for years without ever being taken down in many rural areas. They just aren't into conformity out there.

Indianapolis, Circle of Lights on Monument Circle. Annual lighting ceremony the day after Thanksgiving, draws thousands of people to the circle. I've been to two of them myself and it's packed but pretty neat.

I'm not sure for small towns, but when it comes to Christmas in BIG CITIES...

(IN MY OPINION)
Chicago wins hands down! Even over New York City. Nobody does Christmas like Chicago

1. Chicago
2. New York City
3. Honolulu
4. Boston
5. Washington DC
