Ideas for a fun time in Edinburgh/Glasgow Nov/Dec, Christmas markets

I’m thinking of a quick trip 8 or 9 days to experience Christmas markets and festivities between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I like art, afternoon tea, cathedrals and evensong. Theater and or Christmas markets. I love cities decorated with Christmas lights.

Edinburgh Christmas Market starts the day after Thanksgiving-

Also keep an eye on the St Giles Cathedral website a lot closer to the time- they are bound to be doing special things (although maybe closer to Christmas than Thanksgiving)-

For evensong try St Mary's Episcopal Cathedral-

Glasgow also has a Christmas market at St Enoch's and a Christmas Fair at George Square- including a ferris wheel and ice skating. George Square, especially, is always very festive- or was before the big C-

In Edinburgh for theatre see the various pantomimes which are happening-

Likewise for Glasgow-

Great suggestions but I woke up this morning and decided to go to Germany instead for Christmas markets. Booked my flights. Done and dusted! Now to decide on my itinerary and book hotels.
