Jingle Bells are near

At the moment the city is full of small houses or parts and pieces that will soon be small houses for the Christmas markets. Small houses filled with roasted chestnuts, mulled wine, crocheted tablecloths and handcrafted Santas. The weather is getting colder and more rainy and the Christmas shopping horror and the Jingle Bells overkill is near. I really like Christmas but most of the time it’s not that contemplative I want it to be especially because my way to work leads directly through the shopping streets.

I’m very exited what this is all about. A motor racing-circuit?

    For now, you can get some respite at Freheit Plaz. No lights, no booths, no glitter. I guess you can do business under the Madonna on Herrengasse but Francis the First is off limits to commerece!

    Since this is my first Christmas here I’m looking forward to all the holiday glitter. I do have to say that the preparations are impressive. In Trento Italy, where I have my most recent European Christmas experience, there was just ONE piazza with a few of the little wooden booths. Here, they seem to be filling every available nook and cranny!

    Let the jingles begin!
