Just a few more Christmas images – mainly for the grandchildren, who also look at this blog.
The kids dressing the small Christmas tree for the Hall.
The background here is the painting (Acrylics) my sister-in-law gave me as a Christmas present. It is waiting to be hung.
It is Christmas Eve and Romy is ready to hand out the presents from under the tree. The custom in Austria is to celebrate the birth of Christ on Christmas Eve with the giving of gifts while the candles burn on the tree followed by a Midnight Mass. Absolute magic, if the snow is lying deep and crisp and even!
Sebastian knows that he will soon be able to open his present, too. He has been sniffing the parcels ever since they were put under the tree, but he knows to be patient, like the rest of us.
Twelfth Night – the Festival of the Three Kings! For the kids it is time to say good bye to Christmas. The babies are flying with the Snow Bear to the North Pole to take presents to Father Christmas for being so kind to all the children round the World. I just hope they don’t fall off! Better hold on tight!
