Christmas Enchantment in Alsace

Do you believe in Christmas Magic?
~You will by the time you walk with me through these enchanting villages in Alsace, France!
The Christmas markets or Christkindelsmariks of Alsace have attracted locals and visitors since the 16th century, namely Strasbourg and the storybook village we stayed in, Colmar.
Be prepared to be dazzled by the twinkling lights and delightfully decorated shops and restaurants all decked out for the season.  I only hope my pictures can give you a feel for the magic.

Imagine decorating every window.......

Many decorations gave a glimpse of what was inside, like this toy store and linen shop.
And just look at this lane decorated by Baccarat Crystal chandeliers, each protected from the snow that was beginning to fall.

Next blog....the delicious delights of the Alsace region .... I only wish I had a smell-a-photo lens!

I've been to Alsace before, not never when it was "dressed up" for Christmas. It couldn't be any lovelier than it is right now!
