Today my flatmate and I went to the Christmas Market in Edinburgh and we basically just spent two hours eating food and trying on silly hats. I did, in fact, purchase the wolf hat above and I’m wearing it now as I’m tucked up in bed writing this post! What you can’t see is underneath my jacket I’m actually wearing a jumper with a wolf on it, I JUST LOVE WOLVES SO MUCH!
We started off in the traditional German Market and had some frankfurters as we wandered around the stalls. My favourite was definitely the Crystal Palace stall (trolol) which sold all kinds of crystals and gemstones. Was very tempted to purchase something but I restrained myself and saved my pennies for spending on food instead. I used to collect windchimes when I was younger so it was hard to walk away from the bright agate stars and moons.
We also tucked into some delicious waffles topped with Nutella chocolate sauce, which was so so good. Over in the more Scottishy section of the market we got a yummy steak and onion baguette to share, and then we had a look round the rides. I was all up for going on the ferris wheel but my flatmate was having none of it! Somehow I also managed to drink two mugs of hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows, oops!
If you’re visiting Edinburgh over the festive period, I would definitely recommend having a look round the Christmas Market, which is just off Princes Street. It’s definitely put me in the mood for Christmas, I’m going to break out the glitter and glue tomorrow and get started making my Christmas cards. Anyone want one?!
Is there a market like this where you live? What gets you in the mood for Christmas?
P.S. sorry for the photo overload, I just couldn’t narrow it down any more!
