i. love. christmas.

and germany is christmas paradise. i’m talking decorations, outdoor christmas markets complete with glühwein, spiked hot cocoa, grilled meats, handmade goods, rides, and wooden winter scenes. it’s all just so amazing.

it’s also possible that the mister isn’t so into christmas, and all things sparkly as i am. it’s probably even true. so put your hands together for the man who not only endured, but from time to time even secretly enjoyed the madness. though he did one day inform me, after we had been to two markets in one day, that he felt like i was “water boarding him with snow flakes.” it’s also possible that he inherited the sicilian drama gene. fresh food, drinks, music. oh the horror.
