Christmas Markets in Europe
Heavenly Christmas Markets
A Christmas Market is absolutely heaven for someone like me. I'm in love with everything Christmas - the lights, the magic, the love and warmth, the aroma of Winter in the air. Europeans, especially the Germans, Austrians and French do it so well. I guess it's because they have centuries of experience.
The hubby and I had wanted to go away this Christmas to Germany, but alas, work got in the way...as it usually does :-)). I can't complain though, as I get Summers off.....reluctantly, of course.
Have you ever gone to a Christmas Market at home or in Europe?
