4. Since I was a kid the Stockmann department store has been a must in getting into the holiday mood.
The most important thing was to go and see the famous Christmas fairy tale window on the corner of Aleksanterinkatu and Keskuskatu. I still go and see it!
The Argos hall is full of the latest seasonal decorations.
