It's christmas already so much. Anyway, the tree is on the Roman. And shock, what can I say? I have nothing wrong with it. At this point, please imagine the corresponding Emoji. More than 4,200 LED lights and the red ribbons are doing a good job this year….
Only, where do we go when nobody in Frankfurt is nagging at the tree anymore? Such a beloved tradition. But I'm counting on you to get me out of this mess!!!! How else am I supposed to get into the Christmas spirit???
· Well, the Question of gifts I have already timidly attacked.
· This week then thanks to the dedicated spouse the Advent wreath sparkles on the table.
· And I only arranged to meet at the Christmas market.
>Frankfurt now has a stately and homely selection. More than three million visitors come to the market in the city centre (2016), city tourism reported.
No wonder, if you ask me, in this traditional ambience especially in the evening at the Römer. The local market belongs to one of the biggest and oldest in Germany since its foundation in the 14th century!!
Nevertheless one or the other can get the idea to rather visit one of the many markets in the districts.
They often only take place at the weekends, as for example with us in Bornheim on the square of the weekly market. But it has the advantage that I meet familiar faces that I haven't met for a long time and we can have a chat.
(Of course it may also be that I would rather not meet some, hehe. It means cleverly hiding your nose in the chocolate with cream.)
DER WEIHNACHTSMANN IST FINNE
The weather is quite nice for us and provides temperatures that match the mulled wine. The colder the better, I think.
That's why I want to explore the Finnish Christmas Bazaar this year, where salmon is cooked on an open fire and the Nordic mulled wine is enjoyed on the side. Don't miss it: Santa Claus, who - as befits Frankfurt - can accept requests in two languages: Finnish and German.
· Reflection and peace - when, if not in the pre-Christmas period, should I take the time to do so? But often there is a lot more stress and hectic pace beside the work, because of the many celebrations and preparations. Nevertheless, I have made it a ritual for myself to keep in the Innenhof der Liebfrauenkirche innovation when I am in the city centre.
How do you experience the pre-Christmas period? Which market do you like best?
