shiny brezel, cups of hot beverages to warm up cold fingers, holiday mood until your head spins.
in small doses, i love christmas markets.
i usually pay my visit early, when they are just opened and not so crowded. this year, i went to Brunico/Bruneck with my family, on the first sunday of december. Brunico is a lovely town in South Tyrol, a good place for a stroll or outdoor fun, both in summer and winter.
needless to say, my favorite market stalls where the food & beverage themed ones. from candies to hot dogs, from local cheese (!) to local salami (!!). i had my nose frozen but a warm feeling inside.
so far it had been the only christmassy thing i've done this year. all the big lunches and dinners are going to start next week.
what do you do during the holiday season? any nice tradition?
