Christmas Shopping

Christmas shopping here in Wiesbaden (and also in Trondheim, where I spent last week) is not simply about going out to shop as it often happens in the States (perhaps with the exception of the early colonies in the East). Here in Europe, it is a tradition and a cultural experience mixed with social gatherings throughout the six weeks or so before Christmas. In Wiesbaden, Weihnachtsmarkt around the main church square attracts families in good spirit. People have fun and anticipate the approaching winter. (If you are in Wiesbaden, you might want to visit Feuilleton where my brother has done some simple work on architecture and web design and where some very attractive paintings by my friend Bobak Etminani are also on display.)
