The Christmas Village has moved from City Hall over to Love Park - and we almost missed it!
There's a big Xmas tree, the giant macaroni-and-cheese noodle, and lots of German specialties. The tree kind of freaked me out.
To get into the proper spirit I tried to yodel - which I could tell was appreciated by all as they turned their heads toward me and clutched their children closer to themselves.
YOU'RE WELCOME PHILADELPHIA
It's a very cool setup, with lots of small gingerbread-house-type stalls selling all sorts of lovely and yummy things.
You should go full-on traditional I think. The folks selling earrings and scarves (and burritos), yeah well, that just didn't seem as in the spirit as it could have been. And it was freezing cold today for the first time this year - I wasn't allowed into the come-inside-and-get-warm-with-some-hot-alcoholic-beverages tent - so really, go with the fun traditional stuff.
Hey, what's that?
Austrian strudel - MMMMMMMMMMM
Yeah, that's right. Dogs don't generally eat apfel strudel. But I'm not just any dog, and since my dad was from Austria I AM ALLOWED TO EAT APFEL STRUDEL. It was tasty indeed, not as good as mama has had actually in Austria, but still yummo. Don't let one bite go to waste!
