Christmas in Zurich
These photos were taken over the last two weeks, the usual Christmas markets have sprung up in the usual places. The Christmas market at Bellevue is very nice, this one is new with lots of food and drink huts. For the first time, there is an ice rink and of course it is always very busy. One of the good things about Christmas markets is drinking yummy gluhwein,( mulled wine).
There are Christmas trees all over the place, lovely lights and shop windows are all nicely decorated. At Burliplatz there is the usual candle making place, Alessio has been making candles since the end of November and enjoys the whole process. He has made around 7 candles and some of them are presents for me I think!
Anyway it is hard to believe on Friday it will be Christmas Day, it has passed quite quickly this month. On Wednesday we leave for Scotland and both of us are looking for to see the family!
Hope everyone has had a good December and is ready for Christmas!
