Tomball German Christmas Market

Today MBW and the HA and I drove north to Tomball, Texas to spend a few hours wandering about the Tomball German Christmas Market. The town of Tomball celebrates Texas’ German roots and the Christmas season. There were food and drink booths galore, various vendors, wandering street performers, a carnival, multiple venues for live music, and more. MBW and the HA went Mexican for food, choosing churros and street corn. I tried to stay thematic with a bratwurst and sauerkraut. Also, beer, a German dunkel to be precise. And, also on theme, I purchased a Christmas present for MBW. I’m afraid there will be no surprise factor, but at least I know that when she unwraps it she’ll be happy with the gift.

The HA enjoyed a couple of carnival rides. We browsed through a couple of the labyrinthine antique stores that anchor the festival street. And we met up with some friends. Happily for my aching feet, we spent the last hour or so sitting at a table in Fire Ant Brewpub.

I feel warmed up for the Christmas season now. If you are feeling festive and beginning to consider the purchase of gifts, allow me to mention that books are an ideal choice. Consider shopping Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

And now, pictures.
