Visiting Christmas Markets during Advent is one of my favorite memories from our years spent living in Germany.
What a feast for the senses it was, with aromas of gluhwein (hot, spiced red wine) and roasted almonds filling the town center.
The scent of evergreen garland, which decorated the booths, added to the atmosphere and fairy lights lit up our children's eyes.
From the distance of many years, I can still see us heading home with rosy cheeks, bags heavy with Christmas purchases, under lightly falling snow.
