Christmas is the festival of love, decorations, contemplation, craft evenings, gifts,…. And of course Christmas is also the time of Christmas markets.
Christmas, especially for children, is a celebration that they look forward to for a long time and that we as adults can make unforgettable for them. A Christmas celebration with families in Germany can be briefly summarized as Christmas tree, Christmas carols, Christmas dinner, Christmas markets, nativity scene, gifts, church service. Especially popular in Germany is the pre-Christmas visit to a Christmas market. In addition to food and drink, Christmas articles and gift ideas are offered here at sales booths. The Christmas markets are designed very differently: from Christmas carnival with lottery booth and children’s carousel, contemplative market with arts and crafts, special Christmas markets on certain themes (eg, Swedish Christmas market, Green market…) to Christmas markets in unique places.
This pre-Christmas experience has now also found its way to other countries around the world. Although the theme of Christmas is always at the center, the markets and the offerings are regional. So you can experience a surprise every now and then.
