Christmas Markets-Austin Texas 2018

Christmas Austin 2018

Tis the Season to Go To Christmas Markets...Fa-La-La-La-La, La-La-La-La (I had to sing that slowly so I could get all the "La"s in there...hahaha).

Every year I look forward to going to Christmas's just so festive!! I've been going to Christmas Markets my whole life!! I remember when I was little, we'd drive up to my grandparents and we'd spend the whole day driving around to all of the different bazaars.
I'm pretty sure my mom would run off with my aunt and my grandma...leaving us with grandpa....which was the best!! Anytime you picked anything up, grandpa would ask "Do you want me to buy that for you?" I was old enough to know not to take advantage of I'd say no (I said yes a few times...not gonna lie). My sister on the other hand was like she'd say yes every time!! She'd pick up a doll...grandpa would ask if she wanted it...she'd say yes. Seriously...I'd be looking at something...turn around and within 3 minutes he'd bought her like 2 things. Sometimes she'd be looking at something new while he was still paying for the other item she'd just asked for. Okay...I may be exaggerating a little...but that's what my 9 year old mind remembers from those days.  I got all the gifts I really wanted...and Paige got everything she saw!!

Anyway...this year I've decided to share my calendar of Christmas Markets in the Austin area.  I hope to see you all out there supporting local businesses and enjoying some of the holiday festivities!! If you hear of any other craft shows/fairs let me know and I'll be sure to add it to the list!!
