Love & Strategy at the Weihnachtsmarkt
With my Germanophile or Teutonophile status extending to embrace all that is the Christmas market (Weihnachtsmarkt), here are reasons why I love these markets:
- Hang out with friends.
- Scope out the food stalls.
- Drink Glühwein, round 1.
- Consume food, round 1: Bratwurst, Kartoffelpuffer, Flammkuchen, Schnitzel, etc. Standing in my way are Brezeln, soup, Schweinehaxen, or cookies and cakes.
- Drink Glühwein, round 2.
- Consume food, round 2: preferably something different from round 1.
- Gawk at all of the things I could buy but won’t, although I’m thinking about getting that Rotes Sternchen (little red star) for the family tree …
