Ahhhh, the Weihnachtsmarkt. You really need to experience one to truly know it. It is part festival, part market, all Christmas cheer. They are held almost exclusively outdoors (the only indoor one we have seen was in Andorra, and even then it was an unheated tent) in the month leading up to Christmas. The weather is cold, but the Gluhwein is hot!
This past weekend we loaded up the kids and braved the snow for the drive to Luxembourg. As it was after Christmas, the Weihnachtsmarkt was smaller than usual, but still going strong. We arrived just in time for lunch, and a glass of Gluhwein for me. This was the first place I've had it from a boot, but that didn't detract from the flavor at all.
Ian and Leah got to ride the merry-go-round for being so good on the trip over, and for the walking around. Ian chose the motorcycle for his time around.
And Leah chose the princess carriage. She refused to ride inside the thing, prefering the ride from the driver's seat.
On the way to the car, we passed through this open area, and the kids enjoyed playing in the snow.
I hope all is well out there with everybody. Cheers!
