Noel in Brussels, Belgium

Brussels’ most famous symbol is dressed for the occasion.  Manneken Pis poses proudly for onlookers from all over the world who gasp at his size and laugh at his behavior. One of the legends associated with the toddler recounts that he had gone missing. He father found him peeing in the woods nearby.  In souvenir shops, tourists, in the capital for the holidays, purchase memorabilia of the little man on postcards, towels and pillow cases or in chocolate, marzipan and in an assortment of sweets.

 

Festivities are in full swing with the Nativity on the Grand Place, in front of the Gothic City Hall surrounded by guildhalls and with the Christmas Market in the adjacent streets.

 

 

Joyeux Noel, Gelukkig Kerstmis, Feliz Navidad, Buon Natale and Merry Christmas to all from Brussels, Belgium.
