Subject: Christmas markets
Cynthia, et al; Speaking of Christmas markets - we've got one right here in Chicago! The Christkrindlmarkt (sp?), based on the one in Nurnberg, is in Daley Plaza through the holidays. There are little huts with things to sell and food stalls too. Most important - a beer tent! Mark, Isabel, and I went the other day and bought German (style) Xmas ornaments, then had potato pancakes and brats for dinner. I don't know how long it goes on but you can call the Mayor's Office of Special Events or look at For those of you who don't know, Daley Plaza is in Chicago's Loop (downtown) where the Picasso statue is, just steps from the famous Marshall Field's windows. Chicago is so wonderfully festive during the holidays!! Erica in Holly Jolly Andersonville
