Christmas in Europe

christmas_market1.jpgIts always been my dream to go to New York a few days before Christmas to do some Christmas shopping. It’s a little bit out of my price range this year so I’m going to have to settle for something a bit closer to home and a little bit lighter on the wallet.

A friend of mine suggested a trip to one of the Christmas markets in Germany or Brussels which I thought was a great alternative. If these traditional markets don’t get you in a festive spirit then nothing will. They are a great place to pick up some interesting presents that you just won’t find on the high street. Traditionally the markets sell things like wooden tree decorations, gifts and toys, hand embroidered Christmas table cloths, pottery as well as typical Christmas foods such as stolen, gingerbread and mulled wine.

The markets are always colourfully decorated and take place in picturesque market towns. You feel like you are stepping into a Christmas card. Trips to historic markets towns such as Munich or a stay in Brussels or Prague costs as little as £100 for three nights so you will have plenty of spending money.
