The Christmas Market in Frankfurt
FuFu Life in Frankfurt - Chapter Six
21th - 22th December 2009
Taken from FuFu's room, C 64.
Taken from the 4th floor where FuFu is living currently.
"Jingle bell, jingle bell..."
Hohohoho... finally my Christmas break has started. But, still couldn't get the assignment i planned to be finished before Christmas, i blame the Christmas festivity here that successfully has influenced me to lay back together with the rest. What a shame!
Anyway according to my German friends and professors, it's rare to have a White Christmas here in Frankfurt. Probably FuFu is here this year, so the cold current suddenly visited Europe and it started to snow since last Friday in Frankfurt. Gonna have a white Christmas again after leaving Japan two years ago. Lucky!
The room with blue curtain is FuFu's lovely nest.
Yay... it's white everywhere.
There's six (A, B, C, D, E, F) block of student apartments.
Heading to the train station.
Waiting the train for the last lecture before the Christmas break.
It can be very dirty when the snow is started to melt.
So after the last lecture of the year, i went to Frankfurter Weihnachtsmarkt (Frankfurt Christmas market) with friends. More than 200 lovingly decorated stalls transformed the picturesque Römerberg to a beautiful and lively Christmas market that offering many Frankfurt specialties to imaginative arts and crafts.
It's getting dark from 4pm.
One of the decorated stalls that selling chocolates.
The market was held since 1393 and nowadays with the coming of the advent season, ten of thousands of visitors would go there strolling around the market, enjoying a warm Glühwein (mulled wine), buying accessories for the decorations, gifts, and also taking in the wonderful Christmas Spirit until 8pm.
The famous Frankfurter Weihnachtsmarkt at Römerberg.
The Christmas candles.
FuFu wishes to get any one of these houses.
And bring a Santa back home.
The main entertainment for kids of the event.
Ages FuFu hasn't had a ride.
Hohohoho, Mr. Santa is here.
Take any one of the Santa back home, please.
The first and most beautiful Christmas market FuFu has ever seen.
The giant heart chocolate cookies.
These eggs were nicely decorated. Only for Euro 5 each (RM26).
It would be getting crowded during dinner time.
The stalls selling souvenir and accessories for Christmas tree.
The chocolate sticks =p
It's time to leave for dinner.
Saoyonara, see you again Frankfurter Weihnachtsmarkt.
Hohohoho, last but not least, FuFu wanna wish all of his readers Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
