Tourists take pictures of Christmas decorations at the opening day of Germany's oldest Christkindlesmarkt (Christ Child Market) in Nuremberg November 28, 2014. The first official record of this pre-Christmas market dates back to 1628. A list of notices for stall holders from 1737 shows that almost all of Nuremberg's craftsmen were represented. Every year, Germany's traditional markets, such as the centuries-old Christkindlesmarkt in medieval Nuremberg, draw millions of visitors, both local and foreign. They open before the first Sunday of Advent and usually continue until December 24 at 12 noon. REUTERS/Michaela Rehle (GERMANY - Tags: SOCIETY BUSINESS TRAVEL) less
