Celebrating the oncoming of Christmas in Germany
Christmas is so much fun here! For Christmas they go out all the way. The celebration begins 11-24 to 12-23. Almost one month of celebrating Christmas! They have a Christmas market (Weihnachtsmarkt also known as Christkindlmarkt). It pull in tons of residents and visitors from different cities and all over the world. All of Germany have this market in pretty much each cities. The bigger the cities ofcourse the bigger the markets and festival. Here in Esslingen they have two: Traditional Christmas market and the Medieval Christmas market. They sells crafts, have games, have chestnuts roasting on an open fire, drink Gluhwein (hot wine that taste so yummy and keep you warm on a nice cold night walking through the market). Plenty of eating and performance on stage. Does not cost a thing to get in or watch. It is totally free. Just have to pay for drink, beverage, and crafts.
If your interested in being a part of this festivity and can’t make it to Germany it is okay. There might be a Christmas Market in your area and you might not be aware of it. It might not be big as it is here but atleast you can get a feel of a typical German Christmas market, taste some Gluhwein and traditional German food! Let me give you the link encase you would like to attend one next year:)
Alright everyone I would like to say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
