This year I´ve been to a small “Christkindlmarkt” (=Christmas market) because I don´t like the big ones. They are so overcrowded. These Christmas markets are very popular in Germany but maybe elsewhere, too. You can buy handcrafted things and have a “Glühwein” (mulled wine) afterwards . This one even had a small train for driving around children. And this year I have bought the same thing like last year: handmade soap 🙂 .
