Your πŸŽ…πŸΌ Advent πŸ•― Calendar ~ Day 3

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Shall we take a look behind Door # 3 of our Advent Calendar? 😊

Let’s shall πŸ€“

What’s this?

It’s a picture of the ‘Christkindlsmarkt’ in NΓΌrnberg, Germany 😍

It is one of the oldest Christmas Markets in Germany.

But – ‘Despite intense investigations carried out by several historians and people interested in local history, the origins of the NΓΌrnberger Christkindlesmarkt are unknown. The oldest piece of evidence relating to it is a box made of coniferous wood. On the bottom can be found the following inscription: “Regina Susanna HarßdΓΆrfferin from the virgin Susanna Eleonora Erbsin (or Elbsin) sent to the Kindles-Marck in 1628”. The box is currently in the possession of the Germanic National Museum in Nuremberg.’

(Source: Wikipedia)

The market takes place every year during Advent on the city’s ‘Hauptmarkt’, a large square in the middle of town, and adjoining streets. Each year it attracts more than 2 million visitors.
