Around the world in this seasons' winter festivals

When we hear the word "festival," it's most often images of tents, sun-soaked stages, and massive crowds that spring to mind. But during winter, the word takes on a slightly different meaning. From ice sculptures and winter games to floating light installations, there are many great events taking place every winter that rival the festivals of the summer.
