Christmas 'Mainham

Finding the positive in negative equity (we bought our house in 2008) #1 ... a Christmas market around the corner!

The 7UP Winter Wonderland will be located on the grounds of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham (the site of the Forbidden Fruit Festival in June, pictured below).

At Winter Wonderland, there will be an ice rink (my lack of coordination rules this out), a circus (have some issues with animal acts) and a presumably free-entry Christmas market (promising gluhwein and other delights). The Spiegel Saloon and Le Cirque are amongst the other attractions.

The other half's brother and wife live in an amazing house in the heart of Brussels (above), right beside the city's Christmas market at Place Sainte-Catherine. One of the highlights the last time we were at the Brussels market was trying to last more than a few seconds in a shipping container fashioned into a minus-temperature bar.

It will be interesting to compare the two markets.
