I’m back at hooooooooooome! And because I missed two weeks of letters, I thought I’d do a special Christmas letters!
Dear London – You were fun but I couldn’t live in you. Maybe near you. But not in you.
Dear London shoppers – You are all idiots and cannot walk at the proper speed. Work it out.
Dear Lufthansa morning flight chocolate croissant – I feel we’re more than good friends now. But I don’t think I can go on much longer with you. I’d like to start seeing other airplane breakfast items, I’m sorry.
Dear home friends – Love you all in the eye. I will be buying some kind of smart car, however.
Dear blog readers – I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, wherever you are in the world.
Rococo Romer posted about the wonderful Wiesbaden Christmas market. I wish I’d have had the time to visit!
I loved these photos from Culturally Discombulated of the elves at Macy’s grotto. I visited a few grottos when I was a kid but I think British ones are a lot less flashy than American ones. Santa must have to put up with our Christmases not being as swanky over here!
Speaking of photos, I LOVED this post from Herding Cats about taking Christmas photos. I dare say my parents have similar photos of us lot!
Back to Germany, here are some really lovely photos from a few years ago of Berlin at Christmas.
Another Christmas market – this time with Steven at the Nuremberg Christkindlmarkt. The mugs look really pretty there!
And a pretty German Christmas pyramid from Confuzzledom!
Over to Japan with Breaking Moulds, talking about being an expat at Christmas. I used to find it so hard being in Japan at Christmas. I’m glad I did it for a few years because I can never take Christmas for granted now. People say that Christmas is all about commercialism and it’s so fake and shallow. But if you are taken away from your family for a few years and cannot see them at Christmas then you really appreciate being able to be there with them to see them open that gift you carefully selected for them.
In Japan, they choose a word of the year every year – and this post is a great look into this year’s word!
Hopping over to China for a hilarious post about keeping your child warm in winter. I love cultural differences posts!
Lastly, don’t forget to track Santa with the Norad tracker! HOHOHO!
I’ll be posting throughout the week so don’t worry! I’ll be in Dublin from Friday and so I hope you’re looking forward to even more travel posts!
