Is it Happy Christmas or Merry Christmas?

I have been hearing Happy Christmas a lot while the holiday season has approached Northern Ireland and it has been a wee bit of funny to me, as back home in the states, the norm is to say Merry Christmas, either way I just love the holiday season, it is a chance to gather with loved ones, family, friends and have fun. It is by far my favorite holiday. I am glad I got a chance to visit the Belfast Markets and experience, as well as compare them to the ones in my hometown Chicago, I have to say I was not disappointed¬† either, seeing all the wonderful vendors, from tons of different kinds of food, tons of Christmas gift ideas for the holidays for all ages in the family, and my favorite all the sweets/ snacks and drinks to try. I literally just wanted to buy and try everything sweet I saw, I love sweets, so they definitely got me hooked when I saw all the varieties offered at the market. But what stood out the most was the beautiful Christmas lights all through the market as decorations, the snow globe, which you could enter inside and take a picture in and other attractions inside the market. It really was just a well organized and put together market and I was so excited to be there. I also got the awesome opportunity to hand out a family pass to the Basketball Hall of Fame Belfast Classic which was nice. The lucky family was very excited and happy to receive the pass, as you can see in the picture above. (They were basketball fans) Belfast Christmas market gets a ten out of ten for me because I enjoyed all the sweets I decided to try and washed it down with hot chocolate, and I found some cute Christmas gifts for my family as well. If your ever in Belfast during the Christmas holiday season, please don’t hesitate to go and visit the Christmas market, you will definitely enjoy it and find something that you like individually. Hope everyone is excited and enjoying there pre-holiday celebration/events around the world safely!
