My sister shared her photos of the festive Christmas tree and decorations at home so I thought of digiscrapping them into an advanced Christmas greeting card, thrown in some images I got from the internet and voila, the result! We will be on the road soon again but still don’t know where we will be this Christmas and not sure if internet connections will be ok and it’s only seventeen days left anyway, etc etc so let me send this advanced greeting now…
(This is a late upload as, having just relocated to a new place, in an unfurnished house, I had to wait until internet connection starts working and finally it has come, yey!)

Not only that it is the oldest Christmas market in France, having existed since 1570, it is also the most famous because of its grandeur and its location in the heart of Europe. Come, I invite you to walk with me along the streets of this beautiful city which we are lucky enough to be our home albeit temporarily.
The Grand Place is Brussels’ old market square.
Barely a week after the Christmas crib was installed here, two activists opposed to the current government tried to vandalize the images of the Holy Family so to reinforce security, it was decided to barricade the Nativity Scene, to the sheer disappointment of tourists.
