Newcomers delight in Georgetown’s Christmas Market

Around noon on Saturday, in the large dining room in front of the Hotel de Paris’ big Christmas tree, Pieter Mundhenke drew on the enchantment of Christmas in the mountains to propose to his girlfriend, Leandra Wallace.

“It was perfect,” Wallace said.

The two, who’ve been together for almost four years, then spent their first hour as an engaged couple on Georgetown’s Sixth Street for the town’s annual Christmas Market.
