Oh Tannenbaum! Christmas in My Neighborhood #6

This is probably a familiar sight in many neighborhoods right now.

Countdown: 19 more days and I'll be in México!

    This photo could be also from this country except our trees are not so bushy. The tree in your photo must look very beautiful with decorations.
    (I had a mistake in your email address ! Now it`s right)
    Will you then publish photos from Mexico?

  2. this scene catches a nice and festive atmosphere from your neighbourhood, i like it.

  3. en effet, voila une photo traditionnelle de noel.
    j'aime bien ton decompte des jours avant ton voyage au mexique ;o)

    indeed, veiled a traditional photograph of Christmas. I like your calculation of the days before your voyage to Mexico ;o)

    a very nice shot!!a glimpse of life..busy Christmas life~~


  5. Hi Kate,

    That poor tree, all trussed up, captured on top of a car. I know that when one goes to pick out a tree there is lots of excitement but when I saw this my first feeling was sadness.

    But maybe that's just my mood of the moment. You'll see what I mean if you look at the photo on my blog today.

    And, by the way, about my Christmas stocking post yesterday, I did conflate Santa Claus and St. Nick. I think most people don't realize there's another whole tradition in earlier December. Thanks for making that point. (I'm glad you got some treats to balance out the coal - your St. Nick has a sense of humor.)

    This actually seems late here in the U.S., doesn't it? Our friends in Europe might not see this for a few more days though.

    I hope you'll send photos from Mexico, Kate! Or will you keep posting photos of St. Paul? (I vote for Mexico, if you're going to have access to a computer. :)

    We are visiting our kids for Christmas this year and will be skipping the Christmas tree as a result. It is sort of nice not going the effort and my kids say I can spend he money I saved on additional presents for them.

  8. The tree always seems to be bigger once its in the house than when it was bought.
    We too have forgone the tree in our home since we will be at our sons for the holidays. I both miss it and have a relieved feeling that I don't have to deal with it.
    16 days, my its coming fast. I hope you can post a few for us.

  9. Singaporeans will ask for home delivery of the trees. haha...

    Yes, they provide delivery if you order your tree from Ikea here.


Thanks for visiting my blog; I appreciate it! Come back often!!
