The magic of Christmas has arrived in the city of Halberstadt. I enjoyed a relaxing pre-Christmas shopping at the Christmas market. With a bright range of products the market attracts many visitors, even from Africa. At festively decorated stands everything from household goods to crafts up to Christmas decorations. Here you find all that your heart desires, and I found many sweet delights to taste. The smell of "Glühwein", gingerbread and roasted almonds was so inviting and an experience I will not forget.
Have you ever tasted "Glühwein" (mulled wine)? It is a beverage of European origins usually made with red wine along with various mulling spices and sometimes raisins. It is served hot or warm and is alcoholic, although there are non-alcoholic versions of mulled wine. It is a traditional drink during winter, especially around Christmas.
Hoping everyone enjoyed a merry Christmas and wishing you happy new Year!
With Love Stompie!
