How have your holidays been? Today I decided to make a Throwback post of our day at the Christmas market. (perfect for throwback thursday). For you guys that don’t know what a Christmas-market or Weihnachtsmarkt or julemarked as it is called here in Norway is. It is basically a street-market with small tents and stalls that appeares during the weeks of advent. And I think that it is an European thing. (ง ื▿ ื)ว
The stalls sells everything from decoration to accessories to food. People usually goes to these markets to get some “christmasy” food such as candied almonds, gingerbread, mulled wine and so on. (o^ ^o)

Stall selling Christmas wreath. There is usually a lot of families with children here. ( ´ ω ` )
You can also see signs with the food that they are selling.
You can just feel the christmas spirit with all the lights, and especially the smell of christmas trees and freshly toasted almonds. What smell do you associate christmas with? (´｡• ᵕ •｡`)
You can get a horse toboggan ride around the city to. It was especially popular among the children.
I just love that everything is decorated with lights, it really gives of a nice cozy feeling. And brings out the christmas spirit. I feel the streets are so boring and sad without the lights. (｡•́︿•̀｡)
Tents selling norwegian christmasy foods like: Spekemat (cured meats), lefse, Waffle, Smultringer (heavyer almost cinnamony donuts), kransekake and so on.
A café lavvo. It was pretty crowded so we decided not to go in.
“Have you ever been to a christmas market? Are christmas markets a thing where you are from?”
