The photo was taken in my daughter's house, family is above all for me.
Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas Yael! And best wishes for a happy and healthy New Year, too!
For you too Jennifer.
All cultures have a winter festival (usually involving good food and merriment). It's just that we give them different names. Don't worry about not having Christmas; it's VERY over commercialised.
I know but still i like it, i was few times in Amsterdam and Germany at that time and i liked it very much. You were right about the winter festivals, it has something to do withe the darkness of the winter ahead.
In the Netherlands, Saint Nicholas give presents for the children and left the Netherlands on 6 December. To Scandinavians, Saint' Claus comes on 24 December (closer to the North Pole of course). Personally, I prefer Father Frost, although not Russian. All I want is winter, but no such luck this year.
Yes, the world got crazy this year, even the weather is not like it used to be.
The table looks very festive and I especially like the tractor, it looks like a tractor for the sunshine without a cab like ours have. Our Christmas is a happy table of food and laughter and some joy on Christmas Eve in carol singing and reading out loud. It can be as much or as little as you care to make it. There is one more day of relaxation and maybe see some friends on Boxing Day with cold meats and salad. It is a time for rest, for thinking about other people, and to catch up with just doing nothing during that time. Have a happy day today.
The tractor has some animals on it too, it is almost 7 years old and i always looking for it's missing animals around the house.
In the southern hemisphere we too celebrate Christmas and it seems strangely upside down when we buy cards depicting snow scenes and Santa Claus wears a hot suit. Our Christmas is a time to sit as an extended family around a huge table over-laden with great food.Happy holiday.
I like the holidays with great food:)
In sheffield at this time there is a big sigh over the main street with happy christmas on it AND happy hannukkah
Christmas doesn't mean much to me now that my kids are gone. I don't even have a tree because my ferrets climb up in it and make it fall over, so I gave it up.
Better not to have tree with ferrets,you are right,they are sweet animals your ferrets:)
