These are the darkest days of the year. With four and a half hour days and the weather alternating between snow and rain, we need all the coziness we can get here in Trondheim. This is why we need as many fairy lights we can get and the best Christmas market, not too big or too small, cozy and always filled with people.
Every year, I find some time to scroll through the food tent and taste whatever each seller has to offer. Then, I buy what has become my traditional Christmas butter, as a gift to my mother, to eat with flatbread (a traditional Norwegian bread) and jam, along with chocolate and confections. I love to take photos of everything that’s going on (even though winter light is horrible). In the end, I treat myself to some hot chocolate at Kafelavvo, while trying to breathe through all the smoke. If there’s one thing to love about Christmas in central Europe, Christmas markets must be it.
