Merry Christmas!

Along the lines of Shakin' Stevens, here is another "classic" UK Christmas music video. I think this one needs no explanation.

Lebkuchen

Last Christmas when I went to N├╝rnberg, I posted a picture of German Lebkuchen. Lebkuchen is a traditional Christmas market treat. A common sight at German Christmas markets is decorated Lebkuchen hanging from the stands. Often they will be shaped like hearts with messages written on them in icing.

Because the picture I uploaded last year was not particularly great, I thought that I would upload this one from my trip to Stuttgart last week. This particular star shaped piece of Lebkuchen is decorated with almonds and had something in the centre which I can't remember.
