It’s December! Finally! Isn’t that marvelous? Only four more weeks until Christmas – and a long anticipated two-week break from work. Yay!
My hometown’s Christmas market opened last weekend, and of course I had to be there to kick off the season the proper way.
With mulled wine! The first mug had to be from the Red Cross booth, as every year. Charity and booze, that’s an awesome combo.
Roasted chestnuts are my favorite Christmas market snack. I love them even more than gingerbread, and that says a lot.
After the Christmas market we warmed up at my favorite café in downtown, which is famous for its hot chocolate. This bowl was huge, filled with deliciousness, and topped with a heart. Can’t beat that.
Later that night we watched a movie: The World’s End. It was so funny and even better than I thought. Go watch it now!
Last Thursday, my mother sent me a box of her homemade cookies. Four days later, that box is half empty already. My husband helped me a little, but still I’m totally sugared out now. I regret nothing!
Have you already been to a Christmas market?
