This fantastic black and white photo has a lot going on. The expressions on the main characters’ faces tell a story, as does the setting, the Christmas Market in Chicago. After learning a good bit about the cultural phenomenon of the Weihnachtsmarkt in Germany, I would ask students to write a paragraph about this picture from the perspective of the father, the son, or a bystander. I would encourage students to include cultural aspects of the Christmas market, but rather than just describing, they should tell a story.
