Hi everyone, I hope you all have had a nice Christmas with your family and friends! We've had quite a busy time and now there is still another celebration coming. Of course, here we celebrate Christmas two days instead of one:) Plus my husband had a couple of extra vacation days but is now back to work.
The weather is O.K., one day grey and cloudy, then sunny and warm, so we can't complain. No snow so far. On the minus side, a guinea pig is sick. I suspect her hour has come, but honestly, she could have chosen another time for her departure as we are in the middle of Christmastime or Yuletide, whatever you choose to call it (not politically correct Winter or Season festivities, please. We don't have them over here.)
As everybody knows, traditionally Christmastime was twelve days (or nights) between Christmas and Epiphany and before Christianity our Germanic ancestors observed Yuletide. It's a part of our unique heritage and the latest attempts to rename and reinvent it and to make it "more inclusive" are a direct attack on European identity. Luckily, in our town we still had a nativity scene and a Christmas market, as always.
I have a couple of posts in the planning but must find time to sit down and write them, so we'll see! Till next time, yours very faithful blog hostess:)
