Advent Day 21: Scotstoun Weihnachtsmarkt

On Christmas Eve 2019 we took a stroll to the nearby area of Scotstoun to view its Living Advent Calendar. Each evening in December, one more window had been illuminated. On the 24th, we got to see them all.

Number 21 – Scotstoun Weihnachtsmarkt (though I saw no evidence of the advertised Glühwein and Lebkuchen)!

  1. I remember that one as it was unusual. We tend to think of Father Christmas being universal but many other countries have very different Christmas traditions with their own cast of festive characters that predate that image. Only discovered a few strange European ones last year, reading a book on the subject. Made me appreciate how little I knew about the world or I’d just assumed it was the same everywhere else.

  2. An interesting window though I had to look up Lebkuchen. Following on from Heyjude’s comment I’ve studied the window closely (well I just had to!) and I think the ‘ceiling fan’ is part of the decoration as it’s too low down in the window to be an actual fan – unless of course the people living there are extremely short! 🙂 🙂

I'd love to hear what you think!
