I have only been to a real Christmas Market once a long long time ago when I was first married and pregnant with my son Harris, but it was wonderful from what I remember. The stands filled with amazing food to eat, the Christmas lights in the dark of night, and even a ride on the Ferris wheel. I can't wait to introduce my children to this magic; however, in the mean time our local Christmas market will have to do. Each year the Atlanta International school host a German Christmas market to raise funds for the school. It is such a lovely way to spend the afternoon. The children gorged themselves on waffles and pretzels while I had a bratwurst and potato salad. Afterward, we stopped at my friends Simona's house so that the children could play with her son. The children had a blast! Then it was home to take baths and go to bed. A perfect day!
