My Christmas Tree
Friday, 16 Dec 11 Rainy 6°C / 43°F
Everywhere else the prices of christmas trees seem to go up and up, but at the nursery here in our little village we still only pay the unbelievable price of just € 9.00. (They grow them nearby, so don’t have to purchase them themselves, no transportation cost…)
I like to decorate it the same way every year again. I like it, to have those memories going trough my hands…
The stars made of straw that I bought in a small shop with Swedish handcrafts in Louvain when I was a student (and some more at bought later at the well-known blue-and-yellow Swedish furniture-giant.
The wooden puppets my parents gave me when they came back from a journey to Moscow and St.Petersburg.
The figurines my mother-in-law gave me…
And I realize our son is growing older… ‘Fourteen going on fifteen’, and for the first year since very, very long, he didn’t feel like helping me decorating, sitting on the bench: ‘Mum, I feel so tired after a week of school-tests’!
