I can hear you saying “Stop talking about Christmas. I don’t want to hear anything before the first weekend of December!”
Why I still want to write about it? Christmas is knocking on the doors and I´m already more excited than any child especially when I see all the little lights going on AND everybody wants to be in Vienna around Christmas so it´s hard to find a good Hotel. Is that enough to let me move on?
Christmas time in Vienna is magical. My first time in Vienna was that time and it´s not enough to say that it is one of the most amazing capitals, No it´s also dressed in the most perfect way. Lights are everywhere. You’re surrounded by Christmas songs everywhere you go, it smells like cinnamon and cookies, the “punsch” keeps your hands warm and people with warm hats are cruising through the markets. It´s magical.
I guess that every city is magical to me, when the Christmas decoration takes overhand, but Vienna has the power to be the best. I might even say it´s
ALMOST prettier than Munich during Christmas time, and that means something.
It´s because of all the different markets, which sell all different kinds of Christmas decoration and winter gloves, it´s because of the various decoration you can find after every corner. It´s because of the lights which makes children eyes glow. And if you find yourself with a hot drink and a waffle in you hands, with your friends in front of a wooden booth where they play Christmas songs and you watch a horse-drawn carriage riding by, you’re experiencing the Magic of Christmas.
But let´s not talk to much about it, let the pictures tell you everything But please:
start enjoying the Christmas time. In between all the stress of buying presents and decorating the house, and the hectic at world we tend to forget how pretty this time is. Grumbling and cursing about the super markets which sell way to early all the Christmas cookies doesn’t make the time go by faster. It’s not worth it to be mad all the time and I wonder why so many people hate this time? So why don’t you open your eyes and try to see how pretty it gets around you and finally start to Enjoy it!! You can´t change it anyway.
