Happy 4th Advent! ~

Less than 1 week till Christmas! I thought I might share some christmassy scenery with you... unfortunately we're still waiting for the snow (it started snowing yesterday but nearly melted away by now ~ but I won't give up and hope to celebrate white Christmas) but soon after Halloween Christmas deco has been popping up everywhere so I took some nice pictures of Zurich main street (it's the shopping street in Zurich with lots of department stores and high-end boutiques and stuff... and my former working place /y'know the apple store is also located here).

If you walk through the entrance to Zurich Main Station you'll find the Christkindlimarkt where you can find lots of cute goodies that make wonderful and unique presents. Unfortunately the Main Station Hall is always packed with people so if you don't like the hustle-bustle atmosphere better keep away ^^'
In the middle of the Christkindlimarkt you'll see a huge heavily decorated Christmas Tree - it's the Swarovski (Crystal) Christmas Tree tradition that started in 1998.
The tree is decorated with Swarovski crystal elements and stunning! Beneath the tree you can see exquisite Swarovski collections so the tree is good enclosed.

The Märlitram (fairy tale tram) is so adorable it's worth a separate mention!
I remember riding it once when I was a child. The driver is Santa in person and there are two stunning angels keeping us entertained with a drink and fairytales. The tour lasts around 30 minutes.
It's a dream come true available only for 4-10 year old. 

Hope you enjoyed the photos! Happy 4th Advent!
