You have to be a special kind of person to love our winters, but you don't even have to like Christmas to like Christmas in Chicago. That's because Christmas events abound this time of year, from annual holiday events like Christkindlmarket in Daley Plaza to winter-long excursions like ice skating. Just remember how beautiful the city looked this holiday season when you're arguing over dibs with your neighbor in February.
