Les Marchés de Noël de Colmar

On the first day of Christmas,
we visited the charming village of Colmar,
where the facades of the houses were all decked out in red, gold, white and lovely decors.  (Surely they must hire professional designers for this!)
The kids had fun riding the merry-go-round (ladder truck) in Grand Rue and the "galloping" mechanical horse in La Petite Venise.
 We skipped dinner as we had a 3pm lunch at the popular Brasserie Schwendi Bier und Winstub.  We had Alsatian pizza (tarte flambee), chicken pie with salad (supposedly a house specialty!), rosti (grated potatoes served in a hot skillet with sliced roasted pork and hollandaise sauce) and a junior place consisting of pork sausage and fries for the boys.  My cappuccino came with a huge whopping of whipped cream which the boys devoured, thinking it was ice cream!
Hooray for a fun-filled day!  See you next year, Colmar!
