If you’ve read Part 1, then you know what is coming:
The BRUSSELS Christmas Market!
I was very excited to go to this market. It was raining all day Saturday and I was rather blue (ok, understatement – I cried). I felt that I needed to go back to the USA asap to experience my true Holiday traditions. I know, seriously, I can be a baby. I am truly thankful for my experiences here, even if I have my moments….
Anyway, it cleared up around 4pm and was 50F degrees. It was perfect —> off we went!
Bear with me, there are a LOT of pictures, so I’ll keep the chit-chat to a minimum. We entered the Christmas Market (which has +150 little huts). My favorites are below:
After walking around for a bit (and of course, buying a couple things – HELLO ornaments), we decided we were hungry. Joe originally wanted to stop and sit down at a restaurant. I was NOT having that – how could we leave this magical (I know, gaggish) place?! I said that I was SURE there would be food to eat. Except, I didn’t say food…I tried to come up with an exciting thing Joe would want to eat…but, what came out was…”I’m sure there is warm meat available…” He was NOT enthused, but…look what we found:
And of course, how could we forget dessert?!
After meandering around, it was time to head back to the Grand Place for the light show. I’m going to be honest, it was seriously beautiful. The show had music playing throughout the centrum with lights darting along all the beautiful buildings. There were even ballerina’s and an opera singer. Yes, I may or may not have teared-up here too. Seriously, what is wrong with me?! 🙂 My pictures do not do it justice, but…take a look!
Hope you enjoyed – this was one of my favorite posts and also just happens to be my 100th post!!!!
