HARBIN ICE AND SNOW FESTIVAL
December is here, and while the weather outside isn’t quite frightful, many are already ready for what this holiday season has to bring. The Christmas tree is lit up in Rockefeller Center, the ice skating rinks are open to the public, and coffee chains are doling out seasonal beverages like there’s no tomorrow. While we wait for our winter wonderland however, many in China anticipate their own. Every year at the start of January an entire city of ice and light is created as part of the Harbin International Ice Festival. The ethereal city is home to some of the most beautiful ice sculptures in the world.
