Chistkindlmarket

The large tree in Daley Plaza.

I had a wonderful visit with my family over the weekend! One of the things we did was to attend the Chistkindlmarket at Daley Plaza in Chicago. It was a lot of fun shopping for new Christmas ornaments and sampling all the German goodies including yummy potato pancakes, strudel, and pretzels all under the huge Christmas Tree. It was all so "Christmasy" with the holiday music playing and warm cider - it even started to snow while we were there! Afterwards, we went to a yummy Spanish Tapas restaurant for dinner then enjoyed the lights on Michigan Avenue - so pretty. I hope you all take the time to enjoy some of the special events in your town over the holidays with your families.

Jayne, I saw the signs for Christkindlmarket when I was in Chicago late last month. I wish I could have seen it! I saw the lights on Michigan avenue and thought it was beautiful. I wrote about it on my blog.

It looks like you had a great time!

You were in Chicago? Next time, you'll have to let me know. Had I not been sick this weekend, we would have been walking right past each other!
