I’ve been to a few Christmas Markets lately
First, there was the Christmas Bazaar at Deutsche Schule (= the German School in Helsinki). No, I don’t have children in the school, nor do I know anyone who does. But I have a German husband. And when I mentioned having read about this event, it was clear what our plans for Saturday would involve: hot soup, bratwurst and mulled wine…
So, the outfit is rather casual: a down coat, a cashmere jumper and a pair of trousers. Borderline boring, maybe, but definitely functional. And in my book, functionality comes first. I knew we would be spending some time outdoors, so I wanted to wear something warm (the temperature was above freezing, but still…) and comfortable.
Anyway, the next stop was the significantly bigger Christmas Market on the Senate Square in front of the Cathedral. Now, this one is huge: market stalls with food and handicrafts, a carousel, even a sauna.
However, we decided to skip the sauna and settled for a cup of glögi (= a hot Christmas drink made of grape juice and spices) instead.
