Chicago's Christmas tree is located in Daley Plaza right in the center of the Loop. At this time of year, the city hosts an arts and crafts bazaar called the Christkindlemarket. The market features handmade, typically Christmas-themed, ornaments and decorations of all types, largely from Germany. Perhaps the best parts of the carnival are the incredible food (sausages, potato pancakes, sauerkraut, pretzels, and chocolates) and the two large beer tents, one actually a wooden lodge. Patrons can drink a couple of good, tasty German beers while taking in the holiday atmosphere. (Unlike at Marshall Fields, the husbands have something to do while the wives shop.) A taste of Germany in downtown Chicago. Posted by Hello
