Christkindl Market in the snow

Snow ruined some of my weekend plans – a bus trip to New York City – but my fiance and I decided to brave the snow and do something fun anyway and we headed to Christkindl Market in Mifflinburg.

I had never been and wanted to see what it was like. We headed out early to avoid the worst of the storm – but it was still pretty cold.

The moving Christmas tree was really cool. I don’t know too much about German traditions so it was really cool to see something new and different.

Of course, I made Mike pose in front of it, despite the freezing temperatures:

The highlight of the whole thing was the food.

It was truly a food-centric fair, with enough schnitzel to shake a stick at. But it was delicioussss. And very affordable.

A lady in front of us at the Brat House said she would come out in 10 inches of snow to get their sandwiches and Mike tried one. He loved it.

Do you go to Christkindl market? What’s your favorite part?
