Christmas Markets! I can think of nothing more fun, festive and representative of the holiday season here in Germany. Perusing the many little stalls (could they be any cuter?) in search of yummy treats and wonderful handmade products while sipping hot cocoa or traditional German Christmas drinks like Gluewein or Kinderpunsch is my idea of fun. Last Christmas I believe I went to at least five different Christmas markets in three different countries. This year, I only had time for one. Steven and I spent a few hours in the always beautiful Marburg, Germany to enjoy the Christmas Markets there.
I am heading back to the US tomorrow. Can you believe it? I know it won't be my last time in Germany but I can't help but feel this tight clenching in my chest as I think about leaving everything I've known for nearly two years behind. There are just so many bittersweet feelings, I'm not even sure how to put it into words. I'm so happy we had the chance to take part in some German Christmas traditions before we left. Boy will I miss this place.
