They have been preparing for months and today market traders from across Europe have been putting their finishing touches to their stalls ready for the opening of Birmingham's Christmas market.
The market is the largest of its kind in the world, outside of Austria and Germany, and it is the 13th time it has come to the city.
There is almost 200 stalls which stretch for a mile, from the Bullring to the ICC in Centenary Square, and it is officially open to the public tomorrow.
One of the traders has been coming to the market for over a decade now. Astrid Raadschelders say she enjoys bringing her culture to Birmingham.
The deputy leader of Birmingham City Council, Cllr Ian Ward, told ITV News Central that they are expecting even more visitors to attend the market than last year.
Petra Ahrend has been trading at the Christmas market in Birmingham for 13 years. She says it has changed over the years and it can get very busy.
The council is also hoping the stalls will bring a boost in trade to local businesses.
