I am not a religious person, but I love Christmas time :) When my dad was here visiting for a week, we thoroughly explored the German Market with my husband Dan, and discovered that the vegetarian food consisted of crepes and a potato mushroom melange. It was definitely an improvement from last year!
Edinburgh also has a lovely Christmas market which has skating! Birmingham should really jump on that bandwagon and do more wonderful wintery activities, other than eat sausages in the rain...
In physics related news, I am scrambling to write a paper before Christmas so that I can write a different one after.
Rush rush rush... but first, hot chocolate. Oh yeah.
