Christmas

2 days and we will be over Christmas, I always have this strange feeling. End of November, all seems very dark and quiet, gradually, I can see the houses lighting up and Santa Claus climbing the facades. The last week before Christmas is all about running around with a check list to get the gifts, the food, the turkey and the drinks. The houses are all decorated, light is everywhere.

From the 26th, all seems back to normal, grey, people even take off the decorations straight away. In Brussels, the townhall takes away the christmas trees on the 2nd which I find very sad, the 3 kings come on the 6th so to me, it is a nice period of the year that we should make as nice and long as possible to brighten up this cold and dark season : from 1st Advent Sunday to after the 3 kings is nice or no?
