Christmas Around The World




I have been lucky enough to have traveled to Europe, not only once but twice and as you are reading this I am probably in Madrid for a weekend with my Mom. The last time we traveled together we went to France in January. Most places still had their decorations up from Christmas. It was neat to see how they showed the Christmas spirit. I loved the fancy evergreen boughs and presents decorating the fronts of stores. This was a fairly common decoration and a lot of them were very pretty like this one. Lights we strung every where it was beautiful walking at night. The thing that cracked me up were the Santas hanging from everywhere. This little town we visited had them all over in odd spots "crawling" up the buildings. Some almost looked like he was hanging on for dear life. I am excited to see what Madrid has to offer. Their web site looks like they do the town with gorgeous lights.
