Our First Thanksgiving in Germany


We were still living in the Mainz Hilton on Thanksgiving Day.  The Mainz Christmas market had just opened.  With an invite to a have an American Turkey Day dinner with friends, we decided to spend the morning in the Markt Platz at the Christmas Market.  This was our first Christmas market experience.

There were stalls selling Christmas decorations, wine, honig (honey) in very yummy sounding flavors, various handmade Christmas gifts, gluwein and lots and lots of very unhealthy German treats.

We thought we would have a little snack to tide us over until dinner.   Crepes with banana and nutella and gluwein were just perfect!

We had a delicious introduction to the German Christmas Markets.

We found a wine stall with pretty baskets to pick something up for our Thanksgiving dinner hosts.  This was a very different Thanksgiving for both of us and we loved every minute of it!
