Advent is here, and with Advent come the Brno Christmas with markets at four major squares with the flavours of Christmas. Christmas Market is also on Brno Exhibition Centre.
Downtown Brno is the best place to wait for the Christkind!
For three years in a row, Our Christkind (in Czech, Náš Ježíšek) is the patron of the Brno Christmas. The Association for Traditional Christmas (in Czech, Spolek pro tradiční Vánoce) came with the idea of having him depicted on the cups and mugs in which mulled wine and punches are sold at the Christmas market. Why? Because most of us would wait for him every Christmas. Recently he has lost his face and people have gotten used to keeping him in their hearts without any visual identification. However, children need to know what he looks like, which is why the association has decided to give him the face of the most famous Czech statue, the Infant Jesus of Prague. And with him come other Christmas characters, songs, traditions and habits. Enjoy the Christmas holidays. Our Christkind is going to be here with us.
