The 2nd Annual German Christmas Market or Weihnachtsmarkt in the Philippines

It’s not only in Germany where you can experience the Weihnachtsmarkt or the German Christmas Market.

This afternoon I went to the Ateneo de Manila University, venue of the 2nd Annual German Christmas Market in the Philippines.

The first one was held at a time last year when I was in Germany itself. In short, I wasn’t able to see the first Weihnachtsmarkt in Manila. (Click here for my post about the German Christmas Market in Germany)

Differences

Of course there are differences between the German Christmas Market in Germany and in the Philippines.

The temperature is the most obvious one. There was no snow in Germany during my stay there, but the temperature then was not in any way tropical.

Also, the German Christmas Market in the Philippines was open for only one day. In Germany, the markets are open for weeks.

There are markets all over Germany. In the Philippines, there’s only one venue.

Festive

True, there are differences between the German Christmas Market in Germany and in the Philippines.

But they are insignificant.

What really matters is that both Germans and Filipinos celebrate Christmas with gusto. And they will celebrate it no matter where they are.

The German Christmas Market or Weihnachtsmarkt is one festive proof of that.
