Good Morning World!
To me December signifies the start of Christmas, the time of year when the lights go up and the smell of Christmas cookies, gingerbread and candy canes becomes the norm. The only month of the year when its acceptable to listen to the same Christmas album on repeat. Whilst in Birmingham for a university open day, I decided to explore the array of stalls Birmingham Christmas market had to offer.
The German Christmas market has been running for 15 years in the heart of Birmingham, and this is the first year where the market will run through the whole of the Christmas period, ending on the 29th December. Birmingham and Frankfurt signed a Partnership Agreement in 1966, which began a period of collaboration between both cities resulting in numerous joint projects and collaborations.
Birmingham has always been a vibrant city, renowned for its culture. The Christmas market certainly demonstrated this, as I have never felt more at home in this foreign city. The lined of stalls and people was overwhelming but created a sense of community between people. I thoroughly enjoyed trying all the luxurious German deliciously.
Birmingham has always been one of those cities high up on my ‘to visit’ list, and after this relevant opportunity I took advantage and used my time to explore this wonderful city with all its delights. I feel my time in brum was very short, and I look forward to visiting this wonderful city again. I would recommend visiting this festive paradise before the holidays are over.
