Prague Christmas Market











The lucky, lucky Egypt Girl is flying to Prague to shop the market and enjoy the festive experience with some friends. Visitors come from all over to experience and enjoy the Christmas markets in Prague (vánoční trhy). The markets usually start four Saturdays before Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) and run until the beginning of January. They are open every day of the week. Prague Christmas markets are always busy despite the cold. (Oh Oh...my Egypt Girl gets cold in Cairo...wonder how she'll handle this!) Holiday items, crafts, traditional Christmas decorations and gifts are sold along with hot wine (svařené víno or svařák), grog, warm honey liquor (medovina) and traditional foods. Czech Christmas carols add to the festive atmosphere. After dark, the markets are lit up beautifully. Where I really want to be is here. Won't you join me?
