Vancouver Christmas Market 2013

Merry Christmas Eve!!!  Jeff + I went to the Christmas Market today to fill up on holiday happiness!






The admission fee for the Vancouver Christmas Market during the day is cheap!  $3 per person!  But let me tell you another savings tip – if you go during the day, go to their website, click on the “Ticket + Passes” +  find their 2 For 1 “Bring a Friend” Lunch Pass.  Then it’s a $3 admission for two people!  Booyah!!!!

It’s nice to start off walking around with a mug full of warm, spiced mulled cider!Christmas Village '13 - 01

My favorite stand with handcrafted German Christmas decorations.Christmas Village '13 - 02

I can’t help it, I love these frilly doily ornaments!Christmas Village '13 - 04

And the Polish pottery is to die for!  I want all of it!Christmas Village '13 - 05

Okay, is it just me or is this chocolate advertisement just WRONG????!!!Christmas Village '13 - 03

There is SO MUCH FOOD at the Christmas Market + it is all about pigging out!!!  Everyone walks around while munching on something!  My lunch was a yummy bratwurst with sauerkraut + mustard!Christmas Village '13 - 06

Jeff was on a mission after seeing people gorging on ham on the bone like many Vikings.  That’ss allota ham…Christmas Village '13 - 07

I think it was the most popular food item at the market!  While Jeff was eating, people were eyeing his ham bone, drooling.Christmas Village '13 - 08

We went indoors to look at more ornaments.Christmas Village '13 - 09

This guy’s hat says, “Merry Christmas, Eh!”.  HAHAHAA!!!Christmas Village '13 - 11

So awesome.

The carousel is muy popular!Christmas Village '13 - 10

I was so excited – I don’t remember the last time I had ridden on one!Christmas Village '13 - 12

Carousel selfie!!!Christmas Village '13 - 13

Woohoo!!!  I forgot how fun carousels were!  Jeff was also pretty pleased as you can see in the photo.  And the guy next to him was still taking carousel selfies!!!Christmas Village '13 - 14

After the ride, I indulged in a belgian waffle with whipped cream + cherries!!!  Decadent!  Hehehe.Christmas Village '13 - 15

After looking at so many Christmas decorations, eating a ton + waiting in a lot of lines, we were over it.  Bye, bye Christmas Market, until next year!Christmas Village '13 - 16

We took the train home, which is good times.  I love taking the train in Vancouver!Christmas Village '13 - 17

Here’s the little ornament we bought today.  It’s going to be our new tradition to get one ornament from the Christmas Market every year!Christmas Village '13 - 18
