Today I braved the rain to visit the German Christmas Market in Birmingham with my lovely parents. I got lucky this year because normally my parents go without me!
Despite the rain pouring, it still felt so Christmassy and jolly. The stalls really do look beautiful. Birmingham’s Victoria Square is transformed for a magical Christmas.
The dazzling lights coloured the ever gloomy skies…
Of course, there is always a big wheel to see the best of Birmingham from a height. (Although I’m sure the current building works cloud the view a little!)
Victoria Square really did look stunning – history paired with the magic of Christmas.
Finally, an outing to a German Christmas market isn’t complete without a mug of mulled wine. I adored the cute cups as well!
So, I completely loved it. The music, the lights, the food, the wine. All Christmassy and wonderful, made all the more special because I was with my family.
Nevertheless, Christmas is galloping along and I’m still not quite ready! Mind you, are we ever completely ready for it?!
Big love and festive cheer! X
