The Holidays

The town has morphed into a bright swirl of lights and ribbons as the people prepare for Christmas. Though Thanksgiving truly remains an american tradition.

I celebrated turkey day by making myself a very basic dinner.


(Potatoes and veggies)

Memories of the yearly family feast flooded my mind and I felt a very strong nostalgia and longing to be home again. And although some knew what the holiday was, I couldn’t forget a day where food was consumed until it became painful.

I’m extremely thankful for everything in my life – my family, my friends, this opportunity – The list is infinite.

A wonderful complement to this American Holiday is the yearly “Marché de Noël” (Christmas Market).



At this market one can find vendors selling hot wine, churros, pretzels, sandwiches, candy, chocolate, beer, toys, pottery, vodka (there was a whole stand dedicated to russian vodka) and so much more.

During the day it’s quaint
