What are you looking for?

Something different?

A holiday and some warm weather to do not alot in??

If you are looking for something very different, head to Northern Scandinavia/Finland. Watch the Northern lights, see 24hr darkness, stay in the Ice Hotel, go dogsledding, ride reindeers and skidoo's, try XC skiing and downhill/snowboarding.

You can go to Greece at any time and it won't be all that different (within reason), but opportunities to expereinec real winter and associated activities etc probably won't be as often, especially as you are Indian based.

Just a thought! (if you are looking for more of a do nothing beach holiday/warm weather, Morocco or Tunisia could be an option as well)

If you're from India, you could check out Switzerland. Interlaken must have starred in 9 out of 10 Bollywood movies in the last 10 years, so a lot of Indian girls do pilgrimage to the places Sharuk Khan has been.

Germany is also very nice in the weeks before Christmas. I can especially recommend Nuernberg in Bavaria for its Christmas market.

But (just as it is for me) most likely the cost of travel will determine your destination. www.skyscanner.net will show you cheap travelling options all over Europe if you pick "select destination later" in the drop down menue.

Well i am from india, but i hate that guy named sharukh khan...

I have been to switzerland, Italy, Paris, London in europe... I have been in US for 5 years and have seen christmas in Boston and NY City and also celebrated New year at times square once...

I liked the suggestion of going to Finland and experience the 24 hr darkness and other stuff but what i am looking for is to explore a country may be spain, greece, where its not too cold in december... it will be a nice break from the cold winter in leeds...

Thanks for suggestions so far

any more suggestions guyssss????
