Tallinn Christmas Market

Sometimes living in the place seems a little like living in a fairy tale land.

Christmas is one of those times.

Tallinn is well known for its Old City, and their Christmas market in the Old City is listed among the top ten Christmas markets in Europe. It is definitely one reason (of many) that I love living here.

The market opened today and will be open through January 8 (because folks here celebrate traditional and Orthodox Christmas).

We went over today with some friends to check it out...I took some pictures, but of course it is more fairy tale like when there is snow. However, next Sunday, we are going to the advent lighting in the old Town Hall, so I will be able to get some better shots from up there...and maybe there will even be some snow to make it look like the winter wonderland it is!

The last shot is from inside Kehrwieder, because although there is no snow, we still needed to warm up with some hot chocolate!
