Weinachtsmarkt .. A Unique Christmas Tradition

In  Hamburg .. Dec 10 2010

In  Münster.. Dec 6, 2010

A traditional Christmas market …  open from the first to the fourth advent. A very unique Christmas tradition here in Germany. People gather after work,or while doing the  Christmas shopping. Speciality in this market is Glühwein… hot red wine with spices like cinnamon and orange. This kind of market you find in December nearly in every city in Germany.

    • hey John,
      The same procedure like last year John, … but this year I was as well in Hamburg. Was able to spent the third avdent overthere. It was really fun, I enjoyed it so much , considering being just well with my left eye and I’m so happy and thankful to our Lord having this chances again to regain my left eye’s vision.The market is so fantastic and beautiful and much bigger than here in Münster. Helloooooo John you’ve missed the best glüwein, bratburst and sauteed champighons with onions and very special pomme frites, sweeties and goodies. There are so many small thingS too that attracts the eyes… But anyway, on the 4th advent, be visiting another market … I’ll drink a couple of glasses of glüwein for you…ooopPs I hope I won’t stumble down when I get home. LOL:
      And thanks I will John …

  2. It all looks very pretty, over here it’s all about big shopping mall plazas who just love the look of your money. I love the look of the old European Market stalls something so lovely about them.

    Have a lovely day Connie
