Julemarked - Christmas market

Julemarked er en lang mellomeuropeisk tradisjon - de eldste julemarkedene i München og Nürnberg har en historie som minst strekker seg tilbake til 1628. Her finner man god gammeldags julestemning, originale julegaver, noe varmt å spise og drikke, lokal mat og musikk, brente mandler, honningkaker og Glühwein/Julegløgg.

Julemarkeder i Norge er tradisjonelt sett mindre lokale arrangementer, ofte arrangert av husflidslag og foreninger. Men de siste årene har vi adoptert de mellomeuropeiske tradisjonene og nå finnes det flere mellomstore julemarkeder i Oslo-området; Youngstorget, Rådhusplassen, Norsk Folkemuseum på Bygdøy, Sandvika.

Denne adventscachen er plassert i Maridalen, i nærheten av Skjerven gård. På denne gården arrangeres det denne helgen et barnevennlig julemarked. Mange aktiviteter for barna med ridning, kjøring med hest, saueklipping, julefortelling, tinnsoldatstøping, toving m.m.

God Jul!!

Short English version:
This is a cache in the 2010 Oslo advent calender. The Christmas markets is a long standing central Europe tradition. In Norway, these markets are rather local and much smaller than the "town" markets in for example Germany or France. Typically, local food products and hand-made gifts are sold by local producers. This cache is published on the very same day as the Christmas market at Skjerven farm is open. The farm is located a few hundred meters north of this location.
