The market is beautiful. Everyone has a sense of child-like wonder for all the lanterns, lights, crafts, and treasures. The air smells of cinnamon and bratwurst! Right now the weather hasn't quite transitioned into winter, so the rain from last night and the general "warmth" outside today didn't complement the market as nicely as crisp air with snow flurries. It is still early; we still have time for freezing temperatures.
So, enjoy some of the first shots of this year's official "Eroeffnung des Weihnachtsmarkts"

|Mom, look at what I found! Do you remember these treats from Rothenburg?|
|Despite the rain, opening day was well attended!|
|Drink Pyramid - in all its glory!|
|You can't tell from the photo, but these animals' heads move.|
|Candles - it kind of looks like wax is dripping from the top of the stand.|
