Real Edinburgh Christmas pt2

A bumper post tonight, continuing on from last nights from the Edinburgh Christmas markets. I got so much new material in the city centre today I can afford to be extravagant and dish up bigger than normal posts!

Lets kick off with the balloon seller, looking oh so happy with his new Christmas job. More of him in a future post…

And onto the ice rink which nearly never was this year. Of course, if your standing looking at this with a camera what do you want? That’s right, someone to fall on their arse!

Not sure what he’s up to mind, on the mobile and one hand down the front of the trackies?

Mulled wine is very popular at the markets, never understood why always thought it was pretty gross myself.

Does anybody actually buy the stuff on these stalls? The funny hat stall was busy with people trying them on, getting their pic taken and putting them back. If you need a candle, your candle needs will no doubt be met here.

Ah the wheel, I’ll take a pic of that to show everyone when I get home. Yes, another person who’ll be forever disappointed at the picture she’ll get in the dark from her mobile.

A German Market (what’s so Chritmassy about a German market?) wouldn’t be complete without the German bar, steins and white beers all round.

And a German bar needs… a German bar-man… except he’s probably from Sighthill or something…

One thought on “Real Edinburgh Christmas pt2

  1. I like the mulled wine photo. I like that they have quite obviously just taken the polyester “Scotland The Brave” hanging that they bought in Gold Bros. out of its “Made In China” wrapper and haven’t bothered to dispense with the creases. Sums up the Princes Street Gardens tat-fest perfectly for me 🙂
