We love the Christmas season here at New Times. Every winter we go for strolls along the snowy downtown streets, singing merry carols. We always visit with Christ, who lives beneath the underpass on 15th Avenue. He tells us all about loving thy neighbor and the breaking of bread and how we can do all sorts of unsavory things to our mothers if we dont give him change.
This year were doing something different. Were heading to Christkindlmarkt, a traditional German Christmas market thats being held for the first time in downtown Mesa on North Macdonald Street near Main Street. Therell be all sorts of Teutonic delights, including dance, music, and Glühwein (hot mulled wine).
