Weiden Christmas Market 2015


Tuesday, December 8, 2015

Christmas markets in Germany are simply magical.
The sights, the smells, the ambiance, the activities, the twinkling lights... I could go on and on!

They spied this carousel from a mile away.
I don't think they've ever been happier!
Cute Chris and cute Weiden.
Be still my heart!
These gabled buildings in all the colors are some of my favorite.
A little covered stand so people can enjoy their piping hot drinks even if it snows.
The market square.
Fox has a Lego set that has little vendors and guys handing out pretzels and drinks - I swear it's based on German Weinachtsmarkts :)
The old town hall - it has numbers counting down to Christmas, but can't really see them here. But they're there!
Buying some sweet popcorn. The kids didn't like it (what the?!) which means more for Mom and Dad!
Details.
Lovely lights.
Every store gets into the holiday spirit with festive decor.

We don't really do much except walk around and see the sights - I feel like we should be collecting something like a mug or plate or ornament at each market we go to to make it more special and have the thrill of finding the perfect token. Or something. Or I'll just enjoy it for what it is :)
The reason we went to Weiden was to get our annual family pictures taken for Christmas cards! Picking outfits is the hardest part for me. I went with chunky sweaters, bright colors, and mixed patterns. Whatdoyathink?!
I love Christmastime in Germany!
