WATERLOO CHRISTMAS MARKET 2016

December 20, 2016

Since a few years there are Christmas markets a little everywhere in Belgium and not only in Brussels. Waterloo joined in too. At the very beginning it was just a small little market in a huge tent in front of the city hall. But this year it was different. It had become a nice market with about 30 chalets.



At one of the two entrances






Here you can eat snails



and of course drink hot or normal wine



The house of the Waterloo youth



beautiful decoration



This corner was for drinking mostly Champagne



An old carousel for the kids



Even the Television



Enough to eat and to drink and warm you up at this flame



Jelly, jam and other goodies



Iceskating



Self knitted  pullovers, cardigans and hats for kids



Even Buddha was there to bring us serenity



or another mean to get cheerful



Many different chalets



and people having fun



I haven't seen the real father Christmas but this one waved me good-bye

Glad you made it home safely - looks a beautiful and peaceful market and very poignant after the news in Berlin today. Wren x

Nice Christmas market. I really like the stalls that sell crafts.

Champagne at a Christmas Market is very extravagant. I have been away in Ljubljànà and am trying to catch up with reading blogs. I will post about my latest travel experience soon.
