San Antonio’s Kristkindlmarkt

Beethoven Maennerchor’s annual German Christmas Outdoor Market was packed today with people shopping and enjoying music, food and beverages.  A variety of items were offered for sale including crafts, baked goods, jewelry, pottery, wreaths and Christmas ornaments.  I purchased several German decorations and food items to give as gifts.  I also enjoyed the singing of the German men’s choir.  The lines to purchase food were long with buyers enjoying Erbsensuppe (Split Pea Soup), Bratwurst with Sauerkraut, and Gluehwein (warm spiced wine).
