Do you like the holidays? Well, I have a thing just For the holiday season Chicago and other cities around Illinois and Wisconsin, host a German European christmas market to get you in the festive holiday mood called the christkindl market. This market was a tradition that originated in Europe, Germany started in 1916, It has become popular in Illinois and Wisconsin. The market is located in town squares and tourist attractions.
Khrist kind refers to angles like spirate. The market is most commonly known for their large nativity scene. The market is in Chicago at 50 W Washington St, Chicago, IL 60602 from november 9 to december 24 sunday 11am to 8pm and friday to saturday from 11am to 10pm. The market stands include varieties for hot and cold food, hot drinks, beer and gift shops .
With the holidays now here I have decided to talk about Christmas activities in Chicago and Dekalb considering its just around the corner. Although Dekalb is a small town it does have some amazing and fun activities to do for example, meet Santa's helper in the dekalb public library on December 18th. Or perhaps meet Santa and watch the Christmas light through out Lincoln highway starting at 6 pm on December 18th. Santa will also be riding around with the route he will stop at the Egyptian movie theater for pictures this event will include hot chocolate for anyone who comes by. Santas hours and dates are from 11am- 1pm all through out until December 18th. With that being said if your feeling to go out of town to celebrate Christmas you can go to Millennium park 201 E Randolph st in Chicago Illinois there is 3 main activities you can participate there for example, looking at the huge Christmas tree, going ice skating with a loved one or friends last but not least looking at the amazing bean. If you are in the mood for a photoshoot I recommend going to the Amaze light festival 9850 Balmoral avenue Rosemont Illinois. There is a small fee for individual, for kids 2-12 its 13$ for teens 13-18 its 18$ and 18 and up its 23$
If you are interested on any of these activities you could visit these websites for more details.
When you think of December, what excites you the most? What is December known for? That's right, Christmas, snow, Santa and his presents. Has it ever occurred to you where Santa Claus originated from? Where did this mysterious man with a sleigh and reindeer even come from? Well Saint Nicholas was the inspiration for him and without him, we wouldn’t have the lovable Santa Claus character as we know today.
