The rush as the skyline comes into view as you drive over the George Washington Bridge…The incessant din of honking taxis…the nostalgic aroma of roasted chestnuts…the crowds…the lights…there is nothing in the world like the energy of New York City during the holiday season!
For the past three years, we have begun a beautiful Christmas tradition. We head to Chicago for the most amazing German Winter Festival–The Christkindlmarket. This glorious festival instantly transports you into a snowy European village at Christmas time. From the smell of hot chocolate (with the best whipped cream) and spiced mulled wine, to the quaint wooden huts selling authentic German fare, to the twinkling lights and colorful Christmas decorations, the sweets, beer steins, and traditional German cuisine, –this place will certainly fill your heart with the spirit of Christmas!
