Are you Dreaming of a White Christmas?

The Yuletide anticipation is crackling in the air – the tree is decorated as is the rest of the house – even the presents are tempting us, soon ready to be opened and surprises revealed. In Noway the celebration starts at 5PM at Christmas Eve, when the church bells ring. Then we have dinner at 6PM and after the kitchen is cleaned (while the children are whining and can hardly wait), we sit down in the living room and what everyone has waited for over a month can begin.

I hope you’ll have a great Holiday too and send you all my greetings:
Happy Yuletide from RennyBA's Terella


It was so beautiful outside in our neighbourhood yesterday – all you can wish for: A great Christmas spirit with fresh, crisp air and the sun low on the horizon. I just had to take some pics (this time with my Nikon Coolpix S2) and I think it came out pretty good, so I’ll share some with you as a virtual gift from me to you:

    ((Xmas hugs))

  18. Lucky you with the snow! It rained here!

  19. We had no snow in central Ohio, but had the next best thing–a clear blue sky and bright sunshine. Much of our winter is overcast. You have some lovely customs. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my poem.

  20. Re Hello
    I come back after all the Christmas festivities by you because now I’ve more time to read your traditions. Your posts are super and pictures beautiful. You’ve got chance your mom keeps all food traditions. Traditions find their origins in religions, they lose themselves in the night of time! That’s why they are so interesting and mysterious! You’ll find the 13 desserts of Christmas in my post, another exemple of this!

  21. That’s the same in Germany, only we open the gifts BEFORE we eat, lol while drinking an apperitif we open the gifts.
    If you want escape Christmas decoration or Christmas markets go to Holland ! Amsterdam was even worse than I expected. There is nothing in the city compared to other European countries. I will write about this on Saturday.

  22. Merry Christmas! Happy Boxing Day!

    We had a quiet restful Christmas ;)

  23. Looks wonderful! We had a soggy Christmas this year, which just doesn’t compare with your very generous sprinkle of snow…

    Merry Christmas!

    RennyBA
    Glad you could experience White Christmas here then :-)
    Hope you had a good one too!

  24. Very Beautiful Christmas Gift! Thanks!
    Wishing you and your Family A Happy, Lovely and Successful New 2008 Year!

    RennyBA
