Christmas in Passau

We sure did miss family around the holidays, but Passau kept us busy.

Rainier and papa picked out a “Christmas treat” in the Altstadt to get things rollin’.


We headed to the annual international Christmas party hosted by the Welcome Office.


where we got a family picture with St. Nikolaus. Don’t mind the demon. That’s just Krampus (learn more about him here, or don’t, because he’s frightening).


I should have more photos from the Passauer Christmas market, but I spent 99.9% of my time trying to stop Rainier from running under the huge Christmas tree. This was the second I took to try to get a photo of him in front of the tree.


Just because wrapping paper is super-fun!

In our Christmas best for Christmas Eve mass

And finally our Christmas bird (the chicken, people).
