Leeds German Christkindelmarkt

The Christmas spirit is taking over. My endless collection of Christmas jumpers are being worn religiously, I'm on my sixth batch of mince pies and the present panic buying is beginning.
One thing is missing though...
In Leeds, it isn't Christmas until the Bratwurst sausages are munched, the steins seen off and the caramelised nuts nibbled.
Yes, it is German Christmas Market time!

Flick, Jenny, Kirsty & I headed on down to the city centre with rumbling stomachs in search of some comforting Christmas grub.
But before hitting up the famous beer tent, we decided to have a gander around the shimmering stalls.

Whilst Jenny & Flick went off hunting for some Bratwurst sausages, Kirsty & I were fancying something a little bit sweeter.
Can you beat a decent crepe? I think not!

Swirled out in front of our eyes, they tasted identical to those devoured Apr├Ęs-skiing in the Alps.

We both went for the best combination possible, sweet banana and molten Nutella.
As you can tell from my Cheshire Cat grin, I was a happy girl.

Having had a wander around, we decided to head into the jolly tent before the queue ended up around the block.
The German beer tent is always heaving, full of merry tunes and jolly punters swigging their steins.

Even Immy & Emma came and joined us with a hot spiced mulled wine.
It was a group reunion like no other... Singing Bavarian tunes, ABBA & Gloria Gaynor in a tent lit up like Santa's grotto!

Of course I pulled out my best air guitar for 'Don't Stop Believing'... The cheesier the dance moves the better here!

I think my photos say it all... The merriest of atmospheres with the greatest of company.
Why can't Christmas time be of all the time?!
