    Christmas Tidbits


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     ALin77 shot this selection of seasonal images at Christmas markets throughout the Hessen region of Germany.

    "Germany, as with the rest of Europe, has many regional characteristics and specialities," she explains. "Historical events, folklores and flavors have shaped what the regions have become today."

    "Hessen is home to the Grimm Brothers of Grimm fairy-tales fame. We also suspect the origins of fairy-tales like Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs and Little Red Riding Hood were from this region."
    - eoghan, CNN iReport producer

    Choco-mice...all things nice....
    Hearts adorned with festive spice


    Pretty angels, peeping dolls...
    Wreaths, ribbons, baubbles and all


    Lights and candles shining bright
    In the darkness of the chilly, wintry night


    A warm cup, a gentle sip..
    Brings cold noses to a glowy shine!


    Christmas Tidbits , they so well blend
    How I wish this Christmas magic will never end!
