Today’s post is a little late but it has been a mad dash evening so I won’t keep you too long. Today’s Christmas thing to do is to go to a Christmas Market. I’ve only been to one once in my life and although it was an atrociously cold day, wet to boot too (I crazily wore flats and really should have had wellies) it was actually very nice. I felt some of that magic even through my numb fingers and bedraggled mind. I am just really not good at crowds. I become that ‘don’t touch me!’ person. I just get so harassed, my senses feel battered with the influx of people. The fact that I can’t turn round for running into someone else. I think it makes me very bitchy. However, it’s more a defense mechanism. It’s hard to admit you can’t work like everyone else and revel in crowds. It’s all just far too much for the senses really.
However once you find yourself getting hooked by the wonder you can almost forget the people. I had never bought so many sweets, tasted so many things in baps or wraps and the one ride I went on I enjoyed immensely. I even managed to forget my OCD regarding public things. Although I drew the line at one thing and that was using the public facilities. There are things I can overlook and other things that will never ever happen unless you dragged my dead corpse there. Public toilets are one of these things.
There were so many coloured items and so many knickknacks. I couldn’t buy half of the things no but oh how I wish I could have. I’m not ashamed to say I totally got swept up in the fun as much. I even realise that anything I may have purchased probably would have been long since forgotten under the bed by now. So, it was probably a good thing that I couldn’t buy anything after the sweets, food and the ride.
Ionic’s Weihnachtsmarkt gacha set brought back all these memories as I was setting up the scene for my avatar. I like to think I captured a small part of the amazing that is a Winter Market.
Ready to set up your own Winter Market? the set is available at Equal10. Can’t get into the event or find events too hard? you’ll never guess what? Ionic has another previously released winter market gacha at the mainstore. It is completely different from this new set but if you feel like finding more items to add to your set up this gacha means you can grab more items.
