Getting myself into a Christmas mood

Merry ChristmasHere are a few things that I totally need in order to be in a perfect christmas mood:

There must be snow!

  1. Walking in the snow (best at night when it is snowing)
  2. Eating Swiss Fondue/Raclette in a cosy hut (walking there through the snow :))
  3. Drinking “Glühwein” (mulled wine) outside in the cold, snowy streets
  4. Visiting Swiss mountain towns where there is lots of snow (Davos, Klosters, Saas Fee, Bergün, Brigels/Laax/Flims, Appenzell, etc.)
  5. Going skiing or sledging in the Swiss mountains

Winter Landscape

Enjoying Winter menus (beside the classical Fondue & Raclette of course)

  1. “Gerstensuppe” (barley soup)
  2. “Älpler Magronen” (maccaroni with cheese, potatoes, bacon & onions)
  3. Tiramisu with tangerines & cinnamon

Christmas Food

Watching one of below movies when it is snowing outside
