A White Germany

Full disclosure: we will not actually be IN Germany ON Christmas Day. But, as most of you know, Christmas is happily so much more than just one day in Europe! So even though we will be sunning in Madrid on the 25th, we are still excited about what the German Christmas season will be like this month of December.

I always love Christmas markets. Every year in Paris, I made it a point to stroll each of the big markets (Champs-Elysées, La Défense, Tour Eiffel, etc.) at least once.

Now we're living in the country where Christmas markets originated!

There's a lot to look forward to:

~The rich aroma: meats, chocolates, grilled vegetables, gingerbread. I'm already hungry.

~So much happiness and laughter all around.

~I'm ready for glüwein and waffles!

~The music. I love the continuous Christmas soundtrack!

~The weather may be cold, but the spirit is warm.

~At least three celebrations planned with my awesome team.


Wait, what?!

I know I'm going to regret saying this when it just keeps snowing over and over again, but we've had such beautiful autumn weather this year, that snow actually sounds like it might be fun. We'll see how long the snow lasts, and I'll give my final judgment after it melts. For now: snow is welcome, it's Christmastime!
