Instead of going to a Christmas Market this year, we went to the Winter Wonderland this year to have a feel of the Christmas atmosphere with the crowd.
It was an enormous fair with numerous food stalls, a Christmas market, and many fairground rides.
It was packed when we were there. Entry to the park was free so there were many people just spending time there with friends and family.
Most of the rides looked very well-built and well managed at this fair so the boys decided that they would go on a few.
Tiger seems to have developed an apetitie for roller coasters since our visit to Legoland. Luckily Tortoise was there to take the rides with him, for I can only manage the "baby rides" at Legoland. You certainly won't see me going on any of the wild rides like this:
While the boys were getting their adrenaline pumped up, I enjoyed myself with some traditional Christmas fod: mince pies and mulled wine. Speaking of which, our mince pies, made with our very own homemade mincemeat, are ready for Father Christmas tonight. They are not much to look at -- especially when I could not find my star-shaped cookie cutter -- but they sure taste good. I made a total of 36 and one-third were eaten within two hours.
We've done our advent activities and read Christmas books.
We're good to go for tomorrow. Our little family wishes everyone have a peaceful and joyous Christmas!
