A Christmas market tradition stretches back to Germany during the middle ages. Over the centuries, the joys of the traditional Christmas markets spread from town to town, and around the world! Christkindlmarkt is the German name for the traditional Christmas market, literally translated as “Christ child market.” These markets feature a delightful blend of holiday food, drinks, gifts, and decorations. Various regions of Germany became well-known for their hand-crafted Christmas decorations, wood-working, artwork, or textiles. Today, millions of people enjoy Germany’s Christmas markets each year at a variety of locations. Bethany Lutheran Church with the help of some great friends is bringing a taste of this tradition to LaPorte.
