Christmas markets

In my parents' little corner of the world (Alsace, France), Christmas markets are a big thing. Charming little booths are set up in the town's square and people sell everything from handmade pens to candles, to gingerbread, to jewelry, to ornaments. Oh, and food! There's always lots of good cheese, sausages, crepes, and chocolate treats. I'm putting on weight just thinking about it!

I'm having loads of fun with my family, and I hope you're all enjoying the holidays with your loved ones too!


  1. I also love Christmas markets! The spiced hot wine is so lovely and all the amazing little shops:) awww...Love!
    Kisses and enjoy your time there!

  2. How fun!
    I've never been in Europe in December to catch the markets...hopefully one year. I hear they are so interesting...I'm with you, I'd have a hard time staying away from the food!!
