Brno Christmas Tree: Lights On

In Culture, Life, Winter on November 29, 2007 by Petr Bokuvka

Brno central square will host the Christmas market again. The booths are almost finished and most of them are occupied.

In previous years many of them offered junk stuff. Blankets, towels, second grade T-shirts, kitsch gifts. The place didn’t look anything like a Christmas-mood place. More like a Hong Kong backstreet market after a heavy rain. No offense.

This year the website of the Brno Center borough municipality promises:

The council set out very strict rules as to what can be sold during the Christmas market. Out of 137 booths most of them will sell traditional foodstuffs, handmade gifts and crafts… There will also be Santa Claus’ Post Office… 

The Christmas tree will light up on Friday at 5 p.m. CET. Photos to be updated and uploaded…

  1. Reading through your blogs, you come off as a bit of a snob, those stalls wouldnt be open if people didnt buy the things they sold. Brno isnt a tourtist hot spot, and so the market will mainly be used by locals, so who cares if it sells blankets, clothes and the like.
