So what is a girl brimming with Christmas cheer to do? Head downtown to the Christkindlmarket, of course. Every year, the Daley Plaza is turned into a little German Christmas village with tons of booths filled with bratwurst, spiced wine, stollen, ornaments, crafts, etc.
Ben and I ventured out last Sunday. It was so, so cold. And the wind was especially brutal. But there will still tons of people out and about. Ben had some sort of greasy, red soup that he didn't care for. I ate this bratwurst that later made me pretty sick.
We walked around and checked out the shops. It mostly seemed to be pretty unimpressive, overpriced stuff. But I did think these steins were cool.
We stopped by Santa's house to say hi, but he was on a break. :( Luckily, we ran into this guy instead:
I also saw this sweet treat, which I thought was pretty cute. It means "Jolly Christmas" in German.
Hope you guys are feeling all warm and fuzzy throughout the holiday season. See you all real soon! xoxo.
