Landmark Christmas Fair Awaits You

By Linda Tancs

Originating in Germany, Christmas markets have been imitated the world over but the grand dame of the genre is 576 years strong in Dresden.  The Christmas Market features, of course, the usual hand-made goodies like glass, candles, wooden toys, puppets and other treats.  Edible treats include deep fried curd balls rolled in sugar, ginger bread, sugar roasted almonds, candy floss and stuffed roasted apples. Top it off with a warming wine or rum punch.  And don’t forget that Santa Claus arrives promptly each day at 4 p.m. with special treats for the kids until the festival’s close on 24 December.
