Christmas Market in Luxembourg opens today

“You should have seen him at the Christmas Market,” said Aunt Anne. “Every chance he got, he’d be over there with a mettwurst in one hand and a glass of glühwein in the other.”

“But they’re not available all year round; you have to make the most of the opportunity,” Uncle Jim protested in self defense.

“What do you put on it?” asked Jackie.

“Oh, the same as any sausage: ketchup, mustard, sauerkraut, peppers and onions,” replied Aunt Anne. “Whatever you fancy.”

“And a pair of goggles,” added Uncle Jim. “They have a tendency to spit when you bite into them. If you’re not careful, they can take out an eye.”
