Christmas Preparations Around The World (PHOTOS)

With Dec. 25 right around the corner, nations around the world have been struck with the Christmas spirit.

In European nations such as Germany, Denmark and France, world-famous holiday markets treated visitors to some ultra-glittery kitsch and ornately-decorated sweets. On a considerably more somber note, Pakistani Christians attended contemplative Advent church services, while in war-torn Afghanistan, U.S. troops were treated to a special appearance by Robin Williams in the weeks leading up to the holiday. And of course, Santa Claus himself made numerous worldwide appearances, from Monaco to Malaysia.
