When I lived in Europe several years ago, I happened to wander upon a beautiful German Christmas Market one snowy afternoon. I became completely entranced by the magic and wonder of this festive event that seemed to pop up out of nowhere. There was delicious German food, entertainment, shopping, and an authentic feeling of holiday cheer. Since returning to Massachusetts, I have searched to find a similar European-style holiday event that embraces some of the holiday spirit that I felt that winter afternoon. While European Christmas markets are much harder to find here in Massachusetts, they do exist. In fact, there is a fantastic one taking place this coming weekend in the town of Walpole.
