Christmas Market in Bury St Edmunds

The day after Thanksgiving we spent the day with Alex ( Bible student) and the Vigori's, we all headed into town for the annual Christmas market that has been running for 7 yrs now. We bought a few present and sampled some of the food on offer, for the first time I had mulled wine and roast chestnuts, not to be repeated, the best was funnel cake that you can get in the USA. In the evening it was back to my place for hot soup, hot chocolate and leftover turkey.
In this picture is me, and Reese.
Reese buying a silver bracelet for herself.
All the traders had to dress up in Victorian costume, which really added to the atmosphere.
Alex, bible student from Uganda, this was Alex last weekend with us before flying back home as he had been here for a year, so he got to celebrate last Christmas with us, and the rest of the yearly celebrations through the year, he is very much missed by all.
Another trader, this year we had wooden huts set up in the new shopping centre.
