Riding the Ferris wheel in Place Sainte Katherine
Some people get really excited about Christmas and Ferris wheels.
One (of the many) things about Crazy Claire that is difficult to understand is her enthusiasm for Ferris wheels. She also loves Christmas. So she was really excited about the Ferris wheel at the Brussels Christmas market. She hasn’t stopped bugging everyone she knows to come ride it with her.
She’s finally managed.
Many European cities have their own Christmas market at this time of the year and Brussels is no exception. It’s held at Place Sainte Catherine/Sint–Katelijneplein.
It’s got wooden huts set up selling all the usual Christmas
trinkets, food and beverages. There’s also a small skating rink and the Ferris wheel.
This year they’re also setting up a Swiss chalet with the help of Montreux Noël, which does the Christmas markets around Lac Léman in Switzerland. It just so happens I was in Montreux visiting its Christmas market this weekend. I’ll post on it soon.
