They had all the standards - different varieties of Gluehwein, Wurst cooked on incredibly large grills, tacky figurines, ornaments and candle holders, lights strung up everywhere, carousels, a giant Christmas pyramid, crepes, and crafts. They even had one stand with a functioning Glockenspiel. One stand sold Edeka brand cookies, which amused us, but they could do that here too for all I know! (Edeka is a big grocery chain.)

Birmingham Christmas Market
I'm normally in favor of lines and annoyed by the German inability to form them, but it turns out that since my only Christmas market experiences have not involved lines, the fact that there were lines turned out to be annoying! I don't want to line up for a Schaumkuss, I want to smash up to the counter until I get one!
