Bernkastel-Kues Christmas Market

Today we went to our first German Christmas Market in Bernkastel-Kues. It was really nice and very pretty!! We even happened to be there when the swimmers came down the Mosel, caring torches, lighting the way for St. Nicolas. We had a great time, bought some Christmas ornaments, and made sure to try the Gluhwein. I can't wait to visit more!!

The house that they made to look like an Advent Calendar. So cute!

Gluhwein, YUM!!

Swimmers in the Mosel. They are the little bright lights in the river. There were 100 of them, so this picture doesn't really do them justice. Phillip and I couldn't stop laughing because this is something we could see his family coming up with. You know it was a group of guys who were drunk who thought, hey, lets put on some wet suits, flippers, and life jackets and float down the Mosel carrying torches, that sounds like fun! HAHA!!
