Christmas Markets

Yesterday was the last day the Christmas markets were open and it was sad to watch everyone packing up their booths. Thank goodness for Winterwelt in Büderich staying open another week, because it gives me chance to ease into the end of the holiday season.

For the first time this year I visited the Cologne Christmas markets, which were magnificent with the cathedral overlooking the festivities. It's still unbelievable to me that I live within such a close proximity to one of the most beautiful churches in the world.
