Welcome back to Blogmas Day 8.
Last Saturday The Gentle One and I had a little walk to the city holiday themed market. This is something we truly enjoy, as we don´t have those in Spain (I think it is a central European tradition rather than a Mediterranean one). We took the chance to wake up early, have a quick breakfast and head to the beautiful University Square, where the market is placed. We spent the morning looking around, shopping for wood tree decorations, drinking mulled wine and eating Kalács (a typical Hungarian seasonal sweet which is my new favourite without discussion! I am a bit afraid I am quickly turning addicted to it, and a bit worried I won´t be able to find it once the holiday is over).
From 2013 we have noticed an increasing quality in the stalls, which are not only more numerous than two years ago, but also exhibit better products. Nowadays you can find traditional ornaments and food, together with beer, and modern clothes.
The best part of it is that, as long as I am a foreigner, everything is quite new and I am always looking forward to taste new food and drinks. I am quite sure we will be going back to the market very soon. If only we could see some snow before that, it would be the perfect heavenly Christmas vision...
I am really curious about this: have you got any Christmas market in your city/town?
How does it look? What´s your favourite part about seasonal markets?
