The one that believes snow is there to be eaten.

Dexter's favourite winter treat?
A whole lot of, to be precise.

Dexter is pretty excitable by default. But when it comes to snow, he's not just excited: he gets a little crazy. Crazy enough to gulp down serious amounts of snow and run around at high speed. Or bury himself under a snow pile or dig giant holes or even start levitating. (I'm not kidding! See picture below!) He doesn't get tired, he doesn't get cold (and its almost ten degrees below zero!), only thing he cares about is eating all the snow he could get. And chasing snowballs; eating them, too, if possible. 
I love chilly white winters like this one.
Dexter loves them more.

To land home.

 What are you guys doing on a chilly December Wednesday?
I am giving flowers to strangers.

There are more than 10 different Christmas markets all around Vienna. The most famous one (and my personal favourite, too) is the Christkindlmarkt on the square in front of the beautiful Town hall. The market is one of the oldest in Europe, dating back over seven hundred years, and people seem to love it even more today.
All the trees in the park, where Chirstkindlmarkt is situated, are beautifully decorated with themed lights, garlands and figures, shaped like gingerbread men. Hundreds of cosy wooden huts offer a great diversity of sweets, hand-made goods, Christmas decorations and pieces of art. You could also find the best eggnog punch around here, or maybe apple cider. Inside the Town hall, there is a children's workshop, where cute little elves bake cookies, decorate presents and sing songs, and a sweet shoppe, where you could order a piece of Sachertorte, while listening to Christmas songs.
The whole park smells of cinnamon, caramel apples and home-baked bread and it is just impossible not to feel festive around here. It is absolutely heart-warming. (you still need gloves, though, because December is freezing!)

Are you already excited about Christmas? Have you decorated your tree, made a list with presents? Or is it a bit too early?
