In Puerto Rico is the same. Christmas at the beach! Last time I went I celebrated New Year at the beach. It was awsome!

When we first moved to Fla we celebrated Christmas on the beach.
Yesterday it was warm.  Someone could probablly get a nice tan if they laid in the sun.

My father came from a region of Germany which is famous for its wooden Christmas decorations, the Erzgebirge (Ore Mountains). One typical thing are displays with bands of angels. At home we had one and it grew every year because my grandparents sent some additional angels every year. They're small, maybe one and a half inch in height.

This is how they look




On our family vacation in Austria this fall, we saw a store in Salzburg which sells them, and it has a huge exemplar of an angel in front of the store as a marker. I was surprised to see it in Salzburg; in October when I don't spend one thought on Christmas.

Ah, I'll just put my feet up and relax in front of that picture whenever I need a break, Kerry.  Thanks! 8)

Here's a cute pic.  I can't copy it because it's copyrighted, but the story is cute, too.

LOL at Mery's pic. Too bad we can't post the pic here.
Yours is sweet Kerry.


I bought a Christmas Star plant today.
