Look who we found!🌲

The Christkindl Angel opened the #TxChristkindl Market on Sunday!

Traditionally, the Christkindl Angel brings gifts to children on Christmas in Germany. She is depicted as a fairy-like being with angelic wings, dressed in gold and white, who is never seen. Traditionally, the children are ushered out of the room on December 24 and the angel arrives to decorate the tree and leave the presents.
