Today, Tuesday, April 14, 2015 is Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry’s locations around the US. That means everyone who walks into the shop (usually after standing in line) get a free ice cream cone of your choice.

This is the 22rd annual Harmony Weihnachtsmark which will be held at the historic Harmony Museum. Lots of food, music and of course Chirstmas shopping – its a… Read the rest
