The women on the photography told us that christmas market is a good way to discover the city of strasbourg but it can be a little bit umbarrassing to go in and out because of the control. She think that there is in Europe better christmas market so she dislike the fact that strasbourg say that they have the better christmas market. She said that christmas became to commercial and people forgot to often the origin of christmas. For her christmas is basicly Jesus birth and the religious aspect. When christmas is approaching the first thing she thinks about the market is the smell of mulled wine that she smell every time she came back home and she doesn’t like it.

At the city level the christmas market is a good point because it brings change. Even if she don’t celebrate christmas she likes the fact that there is some reduction in the different shop. When she thinks about christmas she thinks about orange juice and gingerbread. Christmas for her is commercial that promote economics activity, that’s why she can still buy gift, clothes etc without the belif. The only negativ point for her is the overpopulation.

This two boys live in Strasbourg. We think the Christmasmarket have good influence but there is sometimes too many tourists and it’s annoying for us. No, I have not really interesting anecdots but when I was child my dad told me that I will not have any gifts and the Christmasmarket day I received a lot of gifts. I was so happy! I think the term « Chrismas capital’ is a little exagerated because these is too incredible market in Germany and others countries. So, I think it’s the hot wine! It’s a little alcoholic but good! When I think about Christmas it’s always about the flood. I always eat too much at Christmas.
