Is there anything that invokes the Christmas spirit more than the twinkling lights and wooden huts of a traditional Christmas market? Okay, there are plenty of things (actual Christmas, for a start), but the markets that fill up the town and city centres of continental Europe throughout December are definitely a signifier that Santa is on his way.
There is perhaps no fonder childhood memory than the local ice cream truck driving through the neighbourhood, music blaring from its tinny speakers, beckoning all to partake of its frosty delights. We know different types of ice cream: soft-serve ice cream, frozen custard, and frozen yogurt. Whichever it is, there is something heavenly in ice cream, isn’t it?
