Ushering A Brand New Season – Winter comes with Christmas

The Fall is almost over and winter is kicking in. It is getting colder, and more gloomy. We must not allow what is happening in the atmosphere and around us to influence our inner feelings. We can choose to be joyful and enjoy every moment of winter like any other season inspite of everything.

One thing I like about Viennese, is that they  know how to celebrate the coming of winter and Christimas just like any other season.

This weekend saw the opening of various Advent markets all over the city, although others had opened a week ago. We visited Rathaus and took some shots:

There is different exhibition stands, ranging from housekeeping items, games, craft to food and drinks. The most popular stands are those selling warm punch – both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. A great way of keeping visitors warm in the cold weather.
