Thanksgiving is a holiday that is celebrated by many Americans, but is not celebrated in Northern Ireland. As sad as that is, there is still great news for all my blog readers. This means that the Christmas spirit comes even earlier over here! Every year in Belfast, there is a “Christmas market” that is set up in the city. It begins in November and runs through all the way up to Christmas. For anyone that followed Sport Changes Life on snapchat (sclvictory) they will know that I went with some of the other Victory Scholars to check it out.
The market was awesome. When we arrived, the place was packed. People were everywhere checking out the different stalls and booths that were set up. The market was similar to a state fair in the United States. All my southerners know what I’m talking about. The market had a few small shops that sold clothes, trinkets and any other thing that would make good Christmas gifts. There were also a huge variety of food stalls, which took up most of the space. These stalls ranged from German sausages, cheeses, local restaurants, and all types of international food. Personally, I had a sweet tooth and got a crepe loaded with all types of sweets… don’t tell my coach. In short, I will definitely be making more trips back to the Christmas market to try explore some more. #KangarooBurgerIsNext
