A couple of days ago, we launched a photo contest in which you could submit a photo of how upcoming holidays are celebrated in your city.

For those who have participated, thank you for taking the time to shoot the photos and sending them to us.

We’ve received hundreds of pictures from all over the world and we have to be honest and say that it was really hard to pick only ten winners! All winners have been contacted. Of course, the owner of each photo owns all the copyrights.
