There is no better way to get into the festive feeling than visiting Christmas Markets and Fairs. You don’t have to be in the mood for shopping, but wondering around stands filled with Christmas decorations, crafts, home décor and fresh food will guarantee that festive glow. Country Living Christmas Fair definitely has the charm, and I am counting down the days down to my visit!
So, my dear reader, will I see you there? Send me an email if you are coming and we can enjoy a glass or two of prosecco together and soak up that Christmas atmosphere!
