Merry Christmas!

Drinking hot berry punch and hot chocolate to stay warm at the Christmas market.

We’re definitely having a nice time here in Vienna.  We’ve walked around lots of Christmas markets, drunk hot mulled wine, eaten roasted chestnuts, thrown snowballs at statues of random Hofburgs, and gorged ourselves on good food and beer.  Tonight and tomorrow we plan on going to all the Christmas masses we can take, including Christmas morning mass at the Imperial Palace Chapel with the Vienna Boys Choir.  We’re hoping to overdose on the real Christmas spirit, along with some great music.

But, really, we are just trying to distract ourselves from how much we miss our family and friends back home.  We hope you have a warm and Merry Christmas!  We love you!
