Christmas markets not to be missed in the villages in December

Si avvicina il Natale e con esso inizia il periodo dei mercatini natalizi. Naturalmente questa occasione offre una suggestiva possibilità ai borghi di mostrarsi in tutto il loro splendore vestendosi di luci, bancarelle, decorazioni, presepi viventi, casette di babbo Natale e naturalmente abeti addobbati. La tradizione vuole, infatti, che i mercatini di Natale (o mercati del bambin Gesù, come li chiamano i tedeschi - Christkindlmarkt) siano delle manifestazioni dove poter trovare il meglio che un territorio abbia da offrire in un'atmosfera suggestiva, decorata, illuminata, rallegrata da cori e musiche natalizie o spettacoli tradizionali. Sulle bancarelle non solo oggetti rappresentanti le feste ma anche souvenir, artigianato locale, prelibatezze del territorio e molto, molto altro.
Se avete freddo, scaldatevi con del vin brulè o della cioccolata calda. Se avete fame, approfittate degli stand di stret food che offriranno sicuramente il meglio dei cibi della zona. Nei mercatini di Natale nei borghi c'è proprio tutto. Preparatevi a rimaner sorpresi e a sorprendere con i vostri acquisti che, da sotto l'albero, regaleranno gioia ai vostri cari.
