People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy. Anton Chekhov
In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer. Albert Camus
While I relish our warm months, winter forms our character and brings out our best. Tom Allen
Greetings everyone! Hope you’re all well! Despite the lashings of rain and howling wind last Sunday, my hubby and I took our girls out to the Christmas Market which is an annual affair. However, presumably due to the bad weather, there weren’t that many stalls this time around compared to the previous years. The market wasn’t a Victorian themed one either, although there were still some ancient characters lurking about here and there, my youngest was spooked! My son wasn’t with us as he was out with his mates from school watching The Hobbit 2. We still managed to have a fairly good time, in fact it was refreshing to be out there in the cold for a bit. The festive Christmas atmosphere is certainly in the air, it brings cheer to the dull gloomy weather.
Anyway, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all those who are celebrating Christmas a lovely time. I don’t celebrate it but I look forward to the long Christmas/Winter break as it’s a time to unwind by the fire place with my loved ones. I leave you with some pictures I took at the Christmas Market and my favourite Christmas song from my teenage years. It was blaring away at the market, I still love it! And don’t forget to read my posts Victorian Encounter and Victorian Christmas from last year, especially if you enjoy a trip back in time like me! 🙂
