Can you believe it's almost Christmas? This year went by so fast, but I am very excited for the winter holidays!

I really love Christmas. The joy on people's faces. The gifts. The sparkling gift wraps. Especially the markets! Manchester is famous for its annual German Christmas market. I couldn't wait for this year's market. It was the first thing that I did when I got to Manchester. To be honest, it used to be better few years ago. I was disappointed that there weren't many handmade and craft stalls, but it's still lovely and extremely busy. It's totally worth a visit.
