December means Weihnachtsmarkt.

it is crazy to mention but we are so close to the end of the year: only 30 days left! i remember i sometimes made fun of the future with my friends in elementary school, to believe there would be flying cars or some other awesome technology in 2018 and later. yeah i feel a little bit older to tell this story, but i am in my early 20s so. but when you really face 2018 and things are just stuck where it was, it is kinda weird. at least i can do facetime!

yesterday my friends and i went to christmas market (german: Weihnachtsmarkt). Weihnachtsmarkt has finally opened two days ago and we decided to go there directly after the class. good thing about celebrating christmas in germany is that the city is becoming a wonderland. like, a real pretty wonderland. you know i have been living in indonesia 18 years and there are no such thing as christmas market so when i had my very first christmas here, my heart is full!

there is one drink germans treasure during the christmas season: Glühwein. when you absolutely have no idea what to buy there, try it out! i have to mention that it is a spiced mulled wine, so it is a matter of alcohol. BUT, you can choose kinder punsch instead. it tastes literally as good as Glühwein, only without alcohol. i'd rather drink this because you can ask for whipping cream on top of it. 

there are also tons of delicious dishes the visitor can cost. i would recommend crêpes or Bratwurst. i love to go there every weekend in december because of the wonderful decoration every shop put an effort on. at the end of november you can usually see snow everywhere here (at least last year so!) and you are already in the christmas mood, just like that. it is already 1st of december and you know, we gotta: 'in Weihnachtsstimmung kommen' pretty much like going into the christmas mood. i mean, christmas is around the corner! you have to find a way though.

and finally, i can put my teddy fur jacket on! i LOVE this jacket and would definitely wear this the whole winter. matching it with my mom jeans and a black boots, there i have my go-to outfit in winter. 


how do you celebrate pre-christmas in your city?

until then.
