12 Days of Christmas: Day 3

day 3

Christmas in Ireland

Christmas in Ireland is great, lot of lights, and Christmas Markets. Where I live there aren’t extensive Christmas Markets really, at least not that I know of. The only Christmas Market that I can really recall going to is the one in New York City, now my mom might text me to let me know that I’m wrong, but I think that’s the only one I’ve been to until recently. I love markets, I just love seeing handmade stuff, good food, cheery people, the whole shabang. In Ireland I have been to two which is great. So that was a newish experience, and the lights are just a great addition to that.

Dublin:

Well obviously we have to start with Dublin, that’s where I’m living! But I guess only for the next few days which is crazy! For some reason I only took two decent pictures. I literally have no clue why I only took two good ones, my camera was out almost the whole time. P1100622

This is Jayden, one of my really really good friends here in Dublin. We were enjoying our hot chocolates in cold, windy, Dublin.

And here is the market. There’s a lot more to it, too. This is one of the only places in Dublin that sells soft cookies, and they were so good. I might have to make a stop back there before I leave.

The lights in Dublin are pretty cool.

Belfast

I’m sorry to say Dublin, but I think that Belfast won the Christmas Market contest. They had the best food.

I love this picture, but that poor lady does look a little confused or lost or something.

This was amazing. It was brownies with hot Belgian chocolate poured overtop.

Christmastime is Ireland is quite nice, it would be lovely to experience Christmas here, however, I don’t think I could miss Christmas with my family.

What’s the best thing to do at Christmastime near you?

    Hi Mary! Let me just say first of all, that I’m loving these Christmas posts!

    Also, the lights in Dublin look amazing! I, too, love handmade things and the markets sound pretty cool. That brownie looks delicious as well. :) Hope you’re having a great time and I wish you all the best with your end of the year assignments and projects!

        You’re welcome! I’m not sure if we have any markets out there, but I know we have this great store I go to sometimes that has handmade and recycled things! I love it but it’s a little pricey.

Tell me what you want, what you really really want!
