I'm not sure Frankfurt has one, and if it will still be there on Thursday, bit you might be able to catch one of the famous German Christmas markets. I'm sure one of the German members will know more about this
They usually close at Dec 22nd/23rd.
The Hauptbahnhof area in Frankfurt is a sketchy place, right next to the little redlight district there. It's all ugly.
I'd suggest a walk from the central train station down the redlight district, right to the banking district (you walk right to the ECB building), over the famous ''Römer'', on to the downtown area with the stock exchange and the opera building. If you don't analyze the molecular structure of every brick, you should be able to do that walk in 30-60 minutes. On your way, you will pass a ton and a half of restaurants, cafes, bars, stores etc. to cater to your every need. The walk back from the opera to the central station is 2km or so, but there's also a S Bahn stop at the Deutsche Bank building (right by it) that will take you back if your feet are sore. Good little work out after a long flight and you will have seen at least the most famous sights of Frankfurt.
