Serious question.

Are the German markets safe?

Is London safe? Truck attacks, acid attacks...

My view - fúck em. I'm not gonna cower and adjust my life to suit the proclivities of some ISIS loving twáts.

Are you allergic to Germans? If so, probably not :D

I agree with the sentiment, but i remember clearly last year, one guy advising everyone on a similar thread to stay away from the German Christmas markets as they weren't safe.

It was scoffed at and derided, only for the Berlin attack to happen a few weeks later.

Whilst i'm not advising to stay away, it might be worth staying vigilant that is all.

RIP to the people that died but thwere were 12 in that attack, my missus was there a week previous with more people than that, as a total of all of the people that went to all the Christmas Markets that year its absolutely minimal risk.

And on top of that, if you let terrorists affect your plans youre letting them win. Two fingers up all day long for me :D
