Despite the sub-freezing temperatures I still stated "the Christmas market" when my mom asked me what I wanted to do as soon as she picked me up. 20 minutes later we were parked and in the city center for a nose chilling hour. We would have stayed longer, especially since there was so much more to see, if it weren't for the fear that our fingers were going to fall off due to frostbite.
Before I end, I would just like to leave a word of caution. Do NOT, under any circumstances, attempt to eat a lebkuchen if it has been packaged. They're horrendously disgusting, which I learned when I tried one at my mom's house later that day. So the specific instructions my friend left with me, I pass on to you: only eat a fresh one straight from the heart of Nuremberg. Otherwise, you'll be highly disappointed.
