Photo Diary: Glasgow Christmas Markets

Last Monday, 30th November, my mum, sister, gran and I decided to take a trip into Glasgow to visit the Christmas Markets. 

This little venture included our tyre blowing on the motorway, luckily we were coming off a slip road so we weren't going very fast, and so we had to stop at a garage to get it fixed and we decided to grab a quick bite to eat at Love To Eat on Mosspark Blvd. This was definitely a terrible and a great start to our day all at once! 

After we got the tyre fixed and replaced, we were still determined that we would make it to the Christmas Markets.

Which we did! 

It was a gorgeous bright but crisp and chilly day so we were all wrapped up in our winter coats, scarves and gloves. My granny looked like a cute little Mrs. Claus!  We got to Glasgow just as the sun was going down and so by the time we'd got our mulled wine and were strolling around, the sun had completely set and all of the Christmas lights were showing off. It really was a beautiful sight. 

One of the best bits of the markets was the SMELL. There was every food you could ever want under the sun, and more! From a katsu curry to Dutch pancakes, it was all there.

Personally, I was seriously obsessed with the wood carving stall. Well, it wasn't so much of a stall, more of a walk in market itself! I've always really appreciated this kind of thing, so naturally, I wanted it all, even the massive 6ft grizzly bear that was taller than all of us! 

The markets are situated right at St. Enoch's Centre so after we'd finished perusing, we wandered to the warmth of the indoors and managed to pick up a few more Christmas presents in there too. 

The whole point of our family/girls day out was to get my gran into the Christmas spirit because she was definitely lacking it. I think it's fair to say, and gran would even admit it, we managed to engulf her in Christmas cheer.

Buddy the Elf would be proud.
