Chicago is beautiful at all times of the year (yes, even during Snowpocalypse or the polar vortex), but Christmastime really takes the cake. Instagram is lousy with photos of the CTA Holiday Train, Christkindlmarket and ZooLights at Lincoln Park Zoo, one of our favorite things to do in Chicago during the holidays. Here are the best photos we found on Instagram during the past few weeks.
