It's the first day of winter today and also our final look at the Manchester Christmas Markets. The markets close today and this photo finds us over by the craft and gift market at The Triangle, with some Christmas revellers also enjoying the festive views from the Manchester wheel.
So the Christmas Marketeers are about to leave town. The traders from Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Lapland, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Romanian Transyvlania, Spain and Switzerland (is there anywhere I've missed?) have to start their long treks back to continental Europe to get home in time for Christmas.
Bon Voyage, and
Frohe Weihnachten, Joyeux Noël, Καλά Χριστούγεννα, Buon Natale, Hyvää joulua, Crăciun fericit, feliz navidad.
