No matter what's happening in the world, winter in Chicago is still going to be cold and the Christmas displays and celebrations throughout the city are bound to be festive. Many annual holiday events are adapting to our new socially-distanced reality, including the beloved Christkindlmarket, which will sell its wares online this year.
