A cup of hot, aromatic mulled cider can elevates everyone’s mood, warm the body and soul.
So so so sorry I didn’t post anything for a while (for looong), but to tell the truth we had a lot work to do and I was way too tired to compose a coherent sentence. But now I’m here and I’ll share a few pics of the Christmas Fairs I’ve been on and a delicious Mulled Cider recipe!
I know that the Christmas shopping is a nuisance, I hate the crowd (mostly likely I have a slightly phobia here… ) but the Christmas music, the smell of the mulled wines and ciders, the ginger bread, the baked apple and cinnamon and the decoration always helps me enjoy these shoppings.
We’re visiting my brother and decided to take a walk to the Christmas Fair which was beautiful (beside some rude people…), I loved that every light pole was decorate and there was a huge Christmas tree too, oh that smell of the pine… *dreamy*
There was this enormous and gorgeous stag at the end of the Fair. The first thing I could (and still can) think of was the Harry Potter (I’ve a one-track-mind lately…) and the patronus charm… Please tell me I’m not the only one…
Anyway everyone at the square were gathering around it, taking pictures, selfies or just staring at it.
But not only the stag captured the people’s attention, the street musicians were popular too with their traditional Christmas music.
Beside the stag, this polar bear was my favorite decoration with its laziness, relaxed smile! These “little” things reminds me to take a deep breath, relax, be lazy and just enjoy the shopping/Holidays…
See? The decorations help some people!
At the end of the day we made a delicious apple cider and drank it beside the advent wreath.
So let’s see that recipe!
