One of the things I love about this region are the Christmas decorations. Even every little village has some kind of Christmas decor. The main street in the city where we live is always full of Christmas trees and lights. It’s so beautiful.
Another great part of the holiday season here is cheese. Since we live very close to Switzerland, we also get fondue and raclette (two different kinds of melted cheese). Raclette is available at the local Christmas markets, but you can also do it at home. We haven’t done that, yet. However we have taken advantage of the prepackaged fondue. Yum!
