    […] Grown men and women in fanciful costumes jumping around making noise. There is even a group in Freiburg that has these great instruments that look to be welded together randomly. Festivals and the mirth and gaiety that comes with them in definitely part of German culture. Christmas markets and all that comes with is the center of most social outings in late November and December; honey and nun farts.. […]

    We actually have a pretty large Christmas market in my home city of Manchester, England, every year – the traders come over from Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands so it is all authentic local produce from the different places. I love Gluhwein, so it is interesting to see it here as (I assume?) a white wine, as we normally have it as red. But I agree about the smell being everywhere! Also love the Nun Farts, they look very tasty – and the German language always seems to produce some funny translations!

      Yeah, that is white glühwein. They had a blueberry version as well. I find that even non-mülled red wine doesn’t sit well on my stomach so I go for white when I can.
      The odd thing about that translation is that it apparently developed from a non-funny word over time. Who knew there was humor in the German language.

      Authentic imported stuff then? Cool. See if they have fried dough balls in any name!

    Mmmmm – they look yummy! We really enjoyed our visit to the Vienna Christmas market – it’s awfully cold to be out in them but I do hope to see more in the future!

      You just need more Glühwein when it gets colder. Or in extreme cases you sit in a pub and order Glühwein and Strudel.

    Oh to be shopping in a Germany Christmas market instead of the boring mall! I would love to be eating Nun farts while sipping on gluhwein right now 🙂

      Ahh.. the mall. Glad I don’t have to find a place to park to go to the market. Nor worry about drinking then driving home.
      I wish you a happy shopping experience anyway. 🙂

    I find nothing wrong with nun farts and drinking before noon:)

      Me neither. Should be a weekly thing. Maybe Mondays. Mondays would be good.

    Germany is the center of Christmas market, because they’re the real deal there, the rest of Europe just copied Germany on the matter.

    I can’t that they’re called Nun farts in Germany too (they are in France).

    • Andrew
      December 7, 2011 @ 10:26 pm

      Are they called the same in France as well? I wonder if there is a weird translation thing going on there. The sources I found says that the original word didn’t have anything to do with farts.

    Last night we went and got some nun-fart-like things that were called Mutzen! They looked almost exactly like the nun farts (but no applesauce like yours). So many different names for these things!

      Mutzen? Like “caps”? Weird.
      Yeah, even the recipes I saw online didn’t have the filling. This stand could just be applesauce mad. They were putting applesauce on the funnel cake too. Ali said this was weird. I trust her though have never had a funnel cake in the US.
