Early Christmas

The busy and lively "Zeil", the shopping street downtown Frankfurt, is constantly in a stage of metamorphosis, from one celebration to another.

The city this year dedicated a week a month to a different culture, this week was the Japanese one; you could not miss the food stands and music performances from Japan.

What we were not expecting today in our Saturday walk downtown, was to have Christmas on the streets, not the traditional Christmas Market which will we definitively plan to enjoy latter this year, but the street performers that decided to arrive before everyone else. They installed themselves in front of a large department store full of ginger bread houses in display and began to sing Christmas songs to us not in December but in November!
