Christmas in Koblenz

Not only are we in Germany for the Christmas markets, as these pictures attest, but we were here for a very important holiday recognizing Sinter Klass, a German version of Santa Clauss who arrives on December 6 and puts treats in the freshly polished shoes of little children. I’m not sure how the popularity of athletic shoes affects the custom, and my seat mate couldn’t tell me.

These little Christmas creatures intrigued me
Glüwein is a hot mulled wine. Great stuff!

Customized Christmas cookies
Saw this over the top formal dress in a shop window on the way back to our hotel and had to include it.

And now I’m off to bed.

I love to travel, do arts and crafts and photography. But most of all, I like to combine them all.
