Christmas Market in Denver, Colorado

We went to Denver on Saturday because we were flying out of the Denver airport the following morning. As always, we went to the 16th Street Mall to wander the shops and came across the German Christmas market that is there annually. We really enjoy seeing all of the hand-crafted decorations in all of the various stalls.  The market is called the Denver Christkindl Market and it is definitely worth a visit if you’re in Denver in mid-to-late December.

Whether it is because the German Christmas traditions were the ones that most influenced the traditions in the United States or whether Colorado has a kindred spirit with Germany, there are several German Christmas markets throughout the state.  Years ago, we went to Georgetown in Colorado and bought hand-made Christmas ornaments and had each engraved.  We hang those every year, three generations of our family represented proudly.

Unless you can count a year and a half when one of was two years old, we’ve not been to Germany yet, but it is definitely a destination that we’re going to visit in the very near future.  We love these little markets, whether at home or abroad, there is such passion and love represented with each of the hand-made items on display.  Hopefully you have a similar market where you live as well.
