Christmas market and Crystal Party in Oslo - Favorite


My dear reader,
you might know I was enjoying at luxury dinner last Wednesday evening with good IT-friends
here in Oslo.

As you can see, we were all bright and Crystal clear.

This Friday, I was student again. Joined a course in a course for making excellent Internet based surveys, market analyzis and event feedback.

On my way back from the course, I went through the Christmas Market in front of the Oslo Town Hall, very close to the Harbour.

I was there at a time of the early afternoon when there are very few visitors, but Stars ( 1pm).

During the Winter, this is what you need to cover your feets. Slippers made from 100% Wool.

Here is the Sami Market - from outside. Click to enlarge and you'll see the top of some old Sail Ships.

Then I had to rush to meet Anna downtown (Christmas Shopping).

This is in short from a favorite Season.

Oh goody, you have food as part of your post. You know how important that is to me. You do know how to eat well.

Someday I'm going to visit Norway. In the summer though. I love it when it's warm.

Thanks for sharing your life with the rest of us. Have a terrific day. Big hug to you and Anna. :)

I have never heard of a Christmas Market before. I wish there was a Christmas Market where I live. Especially if it was in those cute tents.

I am always cold in the winter so I should shop for some wool slippers like that!

I hope you and Anna had a wonderful time Christmas shopping.

This year I noticed there are Christmas markets almost in all villages and cities in Belgium. That didn't exist at all only 10 years ago ! Today I will see the one in Brussels, yesterday I saw the one in Waterloo (today on my blog) Merry Christmas, lol ! Yours looks completely different to what I have seen.
How did you manage your photo uploading problem ? They are so small !

Looks like you were spammed.
Anyway, Some people think that winter is terrible because it is so cold. I like winter as well because I think that all of nature must sleep for a time so that it makes the spring a time of rebirth.
Sorry I have been absent for a bit. I was spending time with my sister and got home yesterday.

Ah, I see you get time for some pleasures too and not only work, work, work. Courses are never wrong to get either :-)

Great that you got to the xmas market too. We've problem to find any good ones nowadays over here. We missed the one at Drottningholms slott in the beginning of Dec because it was raining heavily that day! brrr...

Our xmas shopping is done already, so we should be able to relax a bit now, though we bought some new phones, keyboards, mouses etc to enjoy ourselves ;-)

It's just the xmas food preparations to be done - especially the Swedish meatballs! any day now....

Hugs to u & the ladies
