With a lot of heart and soul, the people of Marzling have set up a creative, colorful Christmas market.

There, young and old visitors got their money's worth.

Marzling

- The biggest surprise awaited the children at this year's Marzlinger Christkindlmarkt on Saturday: the little ones were allowed to present Santa Claus and his angel with Christmas mail for the first time - with the assurance that they would receive a postal reply from heaven by Christmas Eve.

For the adults, on the other hand, there was mulled wine, punch, Feuerzangenbowle, mulled gin or, alternatively, half a beer to prepare for the approaching Christmas in style.

The people of Marzling have once again succeeded in doing one thing, namely to set up a small but very fine Christmas market with a lot of commitment and even more heart and soul, which is probably unique in the district in this way.

A market by Marzlingers for Marzlingers

"What we want is a Christmas market by Marzlingers for Marzlingers," explained municipal councilor Winfried Seidl, a member of the organization team and one of the good souls of the market.

How well this strategy was received by the locals was evident very early on, because at the latest when the Holy Man arrived in the courtyard of the elementary school, it was difficult to get through.

What was new this year: the little Marzlingen residents could write a very personal letter to the Christkindl, which was then ceremonially received by St. Nicholas and his gold foil angel.

Of course, the heavenly mail is processed in a very secular way, by the local parents' council on a secret mission.

Visiting Santa: Greta, Christina, Maria, "Engerl" Kathrin Schindler and "Nikolaus" Kai Glaesner.

While the kids stood in a meter-long queue, the parents could warm up with a glow gin at the stand of the Marzlinger Netzwerk, which also organized the market.

However, Seidl calmed down with regard to the alcohol speed: "It's hot apple juice with lots of spices and a good shot of gin." According to Seidl, a lot was tried and tasted to find the right recipe and even more tasted until the right mixture finally came on the table .

(By the way: everything from the region is now also available in our regular Freising newsletter.)

The guests didn't have to go hungry or thirsty either: from the bratwurst roll at the motorbike friends' stand to the firefighters' currywurst with a special fiery sauce and coffee with home-baked cakes from the community, there was really everything a Christmas market fan could wish for.

500 gifts for the raffle campaign from the women's association

Another highlight and something that is only available in Marzling in this enormous size: the raffle ticket campaign by the women's association.

For this purpose, Gerlinde Berghofer has been collecting donations in kind from companies and private individuals all year round and lovingly wrapped every single item.

Believe it or not, 500 presents came together this year, which Berghofer and her team neatly lined up in a classroom and waited there for the lucky winners.

The opening of the market was musically framed by the Meindl family, who are famous in the district and offered a wonderful contrast to the usual Last Christmas loop with traditional Christmas music.

Later, the men's choir and "Alla Breve" provided the best atmosphere.

Anyone who still needed a small present found what they were looking for in Marzling.

There were plenty of handmade items, such as over 700 lovingly handcrafted individual items from the children's home team, hats and dolls from the Schreiber family, or the Advent arrangements from the women's association.

What Mayor Martin Ernst was really proud of: "This year even our partner community San Zenone is there with a sales stand."

Charming way to warm up

Because the two guests only spoke Italian, there was a free translation by Karin Noack, who interpreted the numerous cheese and grappa requests from the Marzlingen residents.

The Advent wreaths were then solemnly blessed by pastoral officer Andreas Fusseder, who wished for one thing: "Bring light into homes and into life!"

For the kids who got cold feet and noses while waiting for St. Nicholas, there was a charming way to warm up: Christmas stories were read in the library.
