Grinch and the Christkindlmarkt

 Yesterday I took the Grinch to the Christmas Market in front of the Viennese City-hall. I tried to offer the Grinch some Punsch or Glühwein, some Langos or some sweets. No way! Slightly annoyed, the Grinch complained about the high prices, but also about the fact that some of the huts are offering the same products like last year. The wind was also on the list, as well as the cold.
 It was only the snow that saved the day from the Grinch, and the Grinch from himself. With a sigh he admitted that the Advent is a beautiful season.

  9. thanks, everybody, for visiting. Grinch or no Grinch, the Viennese Christmas markets are a must: you cannot say you've been to Vienna unless you drank a cup of Punsch or hot and delicious wine!
