A couple of posts ago I mentioned one of my current favourite things about Christmas are traditional street markets. We don´t have those in Spain, so celebrating the holiday with mulled wine, sausages, candy apples and hot chocolate while having a walk around is totally new to me.
At the very beginning I couldn´t understand why people would enjoy just spending the evening around a bunch of shops, listening to some seasonal music and trying their luck at traditional games (silly city girl, right?) but after a little while we finally managed to pay our own visit to the place in proper conditions AND without being in a hurry because of the fear to get hands totally frozen (this is a hundrer per cent literal, last December was so chilly, you could feel your fingers hurting even with wool gloves...).
It is really great Bucharest has got its own Christmas market.
As I said, last Winter it was SO freezing, it was imposible for us to visit for more than ten minutes without getting a bad cold.
Notwithstanding, this year the weather is a bit better, and we have been able to have a good walk or two in roder to enjoy the stalls charm.
I am always too tempted to fill my stomach with countless gingerbread buiscuits while admiring the handmade clothing and toys.
You can say I am a Christmas markets believer now!
So tell me darling, are you fond of seasonal street markets too?
