It is time.
The Carpenters. Harry Connick Jr. Miles Davis. Bring on the classics for Christmas.
If we were in Germany right now, I'd be pulling your arm toward the "Weihnachtsmarkt." [Aka: Christmas Market.] They usually open a few days before December, or on December 1. I don't think I have ever been more in the "Christmas spirit" as I was during the two Christmases I spent in Germany two years ago. Germans know how to do Christmas. The Christmas Markets are unlike anything you have ever seen or smelled. You can be two blocks away from the market and you will start smelling it... bread, wurst, beer, gluhwein, cinnamon almonds... pure happiness, bascially. You'll spend a lot of money on handmade Christmas ornaments, decorations, the most beautiful nutcrackers ever, Engeln und Bergmaenner [my favorites]... ahhh, I could go on forever. If you EVER have the blessed chance to go to Germany, go at Christmas time. You won't be disappointed.
Notice the new blog header? I got in the Christmas decorating mood and decided to "theme-up" my blog a bit. I just hope no ones Christmas trees are as sparce and lanky as the ones I've depicted!
A toast... to the beginning of the Christmas holiday season!
Merry Christmas! | Frohe Weihnachten!
Yep... this is one of them!
