On my recent visit to Prague I encountered a number of Christmas decoration shops, though to be honest they didn’t have a great range of tasteful options.  Perhaps I was just unlucky, but it struck me that the Germanic countries and their former empire seem to place a lot more emphasis on the traditions of Christmas than we do, or indeed the Italians.  That doesn’t mean that a city famed for its glass-making can’t do so in July!
