JoSele's notes for this recipe:
This is a special Christmas light watching wine. I make this every year for the holidays. The guys would drive and the ladies would have this while we were out looking at the Christmas Lights. This is fun for Holiday Parties. The house would be filled with spices. It has the most wonderful smell.....The first time I tried this was when I was in Germany, while out shopping the kiosks on the street would sell it while you were out side.

Christmas Markets

In the weeks before Christmas, many cities throughout Germany offer an open-air Christmas Market (Weihnachtsmarkt, Christkindelsmarkt, Christkindelmarkt, Christkindlmarkt or Adventmarkt ). Historically, these markets used to be "Winter Markets," where visitors could take care of winter necessities. But over time, these changed from Winter Markets to Christmas Markets and are now a major part of German Christmas tradition.

A typical Christmas Market consists of tents and booths often situated in front of historical and/or a scenic backdrop. Here, vendors sell their Christmas related goods, such as Christmas tree ornaments, wreaths, candles, and Nativity sets.
