I've been blessed to have traveled extensively throughout Europe while stationed as a missionary in Eastern Europe. To share a bit of that past, I bring to you The 12 Days of "Christmas Around the World." Each day I will chose a country I visited, tell a personal story, and share a Christmas tradition from that country. Please add your own family traditions in the comments section of these posts, or share your own international experiences if you've been blessed enough to travel.
Happy Holidays from Ms. Q!
Consider this Christmas Markets Take 2, Hungarian style.
What makes Christmas markets different in Hungary than they are in Austria, you ask?
Go ahead. I'll wait.
Well, I'm glad you asked, because you'll be delighted to know there is no difference beyond geography.
This photo was snapped at Sopron's little version in Fő Tér.
Folk music is played live by local bands, attendees can enjoy some lángos or forralt bor, and local artisans sell their handmade wares.
It's delightful, and all the more so for being close enough for a midday stroll in between class periods at BDEG.
