Our fellow Transylvanian’s in Aylmer are hosting a Christmas Market!
The Saxonia Hall’s first Traditional German Christmas Market.
Christkindl Market is part of a tradition in Germany that dates back to the middle ages when farmers, tradesmen and artisans would meet around their churches with song, food and small gifts. The first open winter market was held in 1310 in Munich, Germany.
