While the Christkind from Nuremberg, Germany has visited the Chicago market in previous years during the first weekend of the market, 2013 marked the first year of the original Chicago Christkind. Since then, the Christkind has been part of the Grand Opening Ceremony at the Preview Party, reciting her prologue translated from the original German, to welcome visitors to the Christkindlmarket Chicago. Those young and young at heart have had the opportunity to meet and take pictures with the Christkind in previous years as she roamed the market, sharing German holiday traditions.
