Trust me when I say it was a no brainer decision to spend our Christmas in Prague.
Yes, we live in Vienna and it is a beautiful city. In comparison, Prague's beauty glows. This particular place draws you in and wraps you in a warm hug with a big smile. Then it serves up a large hunk of street ham, with a side of potatoes and cabbage, washed down with hot red wine, topped off with this addicting warm, rolled, cinnamon sugar pastry named Trdelnik. Then you get another hug and a smile. Leaving is never easy.
So we celebrated Christmas Day with the throngs of joyful visitors from around the world at the Market in the Old Square. The Nutcracker at Prague's National Theater was enchanting from the nose bleed cheap seats. Our holiday celebrations have officially become traditional in their non-tradition. Should you decide to skip your Christmas tradition and embrace the non-traditional, go to Prague. The city waits with its warm hug. We will be there too.
Bless Us, Every One. May Your New Year be Filled with an Abundance of Joyful Moments.
