I loved perusing the Christmas markets.... this one featuring a tall and skinny Pere Noel.... hmmm? :)
I'm charmed by the European attention to great gift wrapping.... they love adding little trinkets to packages.... and I've happily adopted the tradition
Case in point.... gifts from our sweet Swiss neighbor adorned with cute pom-poms
I unintentionally bought color themed stocking stuffers for my 13 year old.... yes, I might have a problem.
My family's favorite European holiday dessert.... the buche de Noel..... delicious rolled cakes with cream fillings
Every village has it's own Christmas tree and signature lights throughout town creating a magical
I'm always happy to sport a festive neckline or big bauble on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day
Marlowe's Christmas morning fashion statement.... new legwarmers over her Christmas pjs....
Fun under the (felted) mistletoe.... which the nice shopkeeper informed me was actually a cancer on a tree but meant to bring good luck.... I'm going to stick with the American folklore on this one.
Pretty much.... all was calm and all was bright....

for more of our holiday
antics revelry.... go here.
