I’ve always wanted to go to a European Christmas Market. It’s in my bucket list to visit one one of these years. Unfortunately, I don’t have the funds or time to buy a plane ticket on a whim. Thankfully, my hometown offers a traditional German Christmas Market (also known as Christkindlmarkt or “Christ Child Market” in German). Enter Christkindlmarkt at Sacramento Turn Verein.
I’m blessed to be living in California: nature abounds in different terrain here. We have beaches, mountains, forests, and deserts. Living in Sacramento means that Lake Tahoe is pretty much my backyard and we try to go as much as possible. However, we never considered going to Downieville until this past Friday.
Back when Cecilio and I were just dating or even just engaged, we ate out pretty often. We loved (and still do) going to different types of restaurants: counter order style, brunch, New American, Indian, Mediterranean, French, Italian, Mexican, Asian, etc. and we save fine dining restaurants for very, very special occasions. I guess you could call us foodies.
