Salt Lake City has a fun tradition every year of the Christkindlemarket. We’ve missed it the last few years for various reasons, but made sure to go this year. It’s only one weekend in December, so you have to make sure it’s on your calendar! There are tons of vendor booths filled with all kinds of fun holiday crafts and goodies.
Our favorite booth this year was one called Simply Swiss that had the most delicious Swiss treats. Andy and I bought a bag of Bretzeli while we were there. It’s a thin waffle-like lemon-flavored cookie that’s made with an iron. It’s then dipped in chocolate after it hardens. I want to learn to make them so we’ve been looking where to get the iron. Maybe Santa can bring me one this year?!? We also got to eat Raclette made by one of the food trucks and listen to a man play Christmas songs with his cow bells…we felt like we were in Swiss Heaven!
Funny enough, we ran into our former neighbors from our Bountiful house while we were there. It really is a small world! I’m posting lots of pictures from the Christmas market for you. Not only are the vendors and food incredible, but there’s also a parade and all kinds of entertainment. Do you have a Christkindlemarket where you live?
Finally, as we were leaving the market to go back to the mountains, we saw the thick layer of the inversion settled over Salt Lake City. We saw last week that Salt Lake was ranked the worst city for air pollution for a day. As we drove back home, we were relieved that the inversion isn’t up here where we live. It may be cold and snowy, but the skies are blue and the sun is usually out. We feel very blessed!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
