Looking back at Christmas 2017

I think it’s time to recapitulate this year’s Christmas (or to be more specific, last year’s Christmas).

I don’t know why, but this year it was missing that “Christmas’ spirit” for me. It wasn’t bad, just not so special. I got nice gifts, but none of them was a real surprise for me. I didn’t have time to bake cookies as usual, so I made just four kinds.

But I had a great time exploring Christmas markets here in Brno. And I must say, we had amazing Christmas trees, both of them. Punch was awesome as well. Here in Brno, we have a specialty (I don’t know if they serve it somewhere else also) and it’s called “turbomošt”. Translation could be turbo cider. It’s apple slivovitz with apple juice and some spices. And it’s served hot. If you’ll be in Brno for Christmas someday, you have to try it. But be aware, it’s strong – alcoholic.

On Christmas market’s are also stalls with everything possible. Christmas decorations, paper stationery, food, drinks, toys, spices, stones…

Here are some pictures I took 🙂
