Blizzardy Evening Christmas Market in Maastricht, Netherlands

Good morning, luvs! It was a full-blown blizzard the night we went to the Maastricht Christmas Market, yet that didn’t keep the Dutch (or us!) from enjoying the music, lights and delights of the market.

Situated in the town square, the nearby church towers provide a magnificent backdrop for Christmas trees and brightly lit stalls filled with gifts and local food specialties.

Heavily bundled children can ride the carousel and Santa’s reindeer before choosing their favorite treats at the enticing candy cart across the way.

There’s something about old-fashioned candies that draw me in every time. Especially those long, swirled candy sticks in odd flavors like horehound. They make me smile.

Now I must hustle and finish getting ready! It’s another snowy day in Germany and we’re heading to Ulm to visit the Medieval Christmas Market and dig into some amazing Ethiopian food.

Hope you have a beautiful day! 🙂
