Winter Camping and Flea/Crafts Market in Bad Wildbad

And my late posts continue....

This is still a part of our Christmas camping break in Camping Kleinenzhof, Schwarzwald. Only this day, there's more snow and there's a Flea and Crafts Market in the camping grounds organized by the long staying campers.

Yes, that's what I like in this camping ground, the long staying campers always organize fun activities, remember the Halloween party?

This time, it's supposed to be a combined flea and crafts market, with some food and drinks and yes, fun, too!

Camping on a Snowy Second Christmas Day

As you might already know, Germany celebrates December 26th as the Second Christmas Day, compared to England's Boxing Day.

We were home on Christmas Eve but we decided to go Christmas camping on Christmas Day. Around 9 a.m., we were already on our way to our favorite camping area in the Black Forest.

The drive was smooth and surprise, no traffic :-D And what a nice surprise, it's beginning to look a lot like a white Christmas when we arrived!

I didn't get the chance to take photos during Christmas Day because we got busy preparing our caravan for our stay and it was really cold, brrrrr... but the next day, we got to explore! Here's the beautiful, snowy Second Christmas Day in photos!

Fun on a Sled

It's rare to enjoy a snowy day in a sled thus when the girls discovered that there's still enough snow on the hills nearby, they decided to seize the day!

On our way..

after more than 30 minutes of pulling their sleds up the hill, the arrival...

Our New Year's Eve 2014

New Year's Eve and the girls have a plan. The same procedure as last year, you know.

Dinner prep, some kiddie fireworks, watching TV and board games (don't forget to watch Dinner for One!!!), raclette dinner, some table fireworks, TV, some more fireworks outside and then the real fireworks.

Of course, we kept the same traditions as usual: wearing clothes with rounded prints, rounded-shaped fruits, marzipan and chocolate made lucky charms, sekt and kiddie wine, mini table horns, fireworks, and a Bleigie├čen set (lead kit).

Fruits and Raclette on the table
