Let's make this market one of best Belfast has enjoyed
The arrival of the Christmas Market in Belfast heralds the approach of the festive season and it also adds a cosmopolitan atmosphere to the city.
The size and scope of the market has increased dramatically since it first came to Belfast in 2004, and for many people in the city and from further afield it is one of the focal points of their Christmas.
There is the added attraction this year that young Ulster cancer victims and people from an impoverished village in Zimbabwe will benefit from part of the proceeds.
This is the true spirit of Christmas indeed, and hopefully people will make this market one of the best ever.
