You missed a great sunset...

No, not in Bonaire. (They were good.) But night after night Holland rewards me with stunning sunsets from my balcony.By the way, now that it's December 20th (wow!) maybe it's time to acknowledge Christmas. Merry Christmas everyone! I hope your holiday seasons are wonderful and that the "spirit of the season" hasn't gotten you down yet. :-) Here in Amsterdam I'm hoping to see THREE groups of friends for the first time in months and months. Some are arriving Wednesday, another on Saturday, and so on. So just to let you know, I'm ready and festive, here's a picture to prove my Christmas Spirit. Ho Ho Ho *cough* *cough*

Okay, so it's not a traditional Christmas tree. But it's a tree. This is Christmas. And that's a Christmas decoration in that tree. So it's a Christmas tree.

The pressents are mostly for me. *blush* Sent via care-package from Canada. But one of those is currently in transit to Canada. It has a 0% chance of arriving before Christmas. So I hope the picture of it suffices for now.

Of ocurs eit is a Christmas tree. I could so tell! And with present sunderneath and all...lovely. I´d like to have the third CD from the left please :)

Name it and I can make you a copy! Otherwise, if it's one of the wrapped ones we've got to wait until Christmas. (Or at least Christmas Eve.)

The tree now has three balls and four cards. Extremely festive!

so, what Cd was it and more imporatntly, how quicly can it get here???
just did you open your presents according to European or Canadian tradition?

Did I open my prezzies to the European or Canadian standard? Yes. I think. I'm not sure.

One opened Christmas Eve. The rest the next day.

I was proud of myself since ripping open the wrapping wasn't my first action that morning.

The Dutch stardard is to open gifts on December 5th.
