Just received this postcard in the mail from my cousin and his girlfriend in Germany. They live in Nürnberg, or Nuremberg, and just love the city. When they were here over the summer they told us about the gorgeous Christkindlesmarkt, or Christmas Market, held every December in the large market square. About 180 beautifully decorated wooden stalls sell gingerbread, baked goods, wood-carved Christmas wares, ornaments, and crafts, including the well-known "Nuremberg Plum People," little figures made from prunes. The Christmas market draws well over a million visitors every year.
