Reminiscing Christmas from a few years back, while we were in Frankfurt (Germany). There used to be Christmas markets, with the streets turned into a huge fair. There were shops filled with street food lined up along the street, and even with temperature below 0 (degree celsius), the warmth of the festivities filled the street. Although Frankfurt is not even one of the most popular Christmas markets of Germany, yet we really found it quite festive.
Missing the cheer in the air, streets lined up with candy stores, the sweet aroma of warm apfel wein (apple wine), the colorfully lit up markets, the warm sweet and cheesy breads, the deep-fried hot Kartoffel (potato) and the numerous stalls of trinkets.
