Bremer Weihnachts Markt 2008

Last night at the Christmas Market for the West Family before heading back to Utah. Despite the weather being cold and misty rain tonight, we still enjoy ourselves. It is so festive, with the lights and happy Germans, drinking their spice wine, eating and shopping.

Here comes the Gluiwein (Hot spiced wine)

Warms you inside and out........

We finished up some last minute shopping and enjoyed a Bratwurst and these little donuts. I can't pronounce or spell the name, but I call them "little pillows of love". One of our purchases tonight was one candy cane, it cost one Euro! Candy canes are hard to come by in Bremen, the market is the only place I have found them. But one Euro for a single candy candy and it's not even Bob's Candy Canes!

Fun to hear about the holiday season in Germany! I can't believe how expensive candy canes are there - you could start your own business, make and sell them for less and still make a profit!

Lovely photos, as usual! Have a safe trip across the Pond.
