Festival of Trees (part 2)

by Camellia Staab November. 24, 2018 386 views

The last day for the Festival of Trees event for this year is tomorrow, November 25th. It is definitely a sight to be seen. So many people, young and old, have dedicated their time into decorating some exquisite trees, wreaths and centerpieces. It is a fun family event and of course another opportunity to take photos.

Oh, I didn't understand in Part 1, that the decorations are to be sold to the highest bidder. I like that idea a lot!
I also didn't expected the a little train! It#s a sweet idea too.
#6 - I would like to buy the "spitting sign". I would put it in our elevator, because the newspaperboy is doing it every morning right on the entrance. Nobody knows it but me, because I'm up early to walk Felix around the block and it isn't dried up. Sometimes I ask my self, what people are thinking or if they are capable of thinking at all! Anotehr Questions is: Does he do it in all elevetors? How does he manage, not tor dry up like a mummy at the end of his tour? BUT this are questions for another post in another blog - no,  I won't photograph it!!!
#18 - I think, this is the most US-like X-Mas, but I may be wrong.
Btw. I like the way these exhibition put smiles on the faces.

You are probably right, at one time #18 would have been the idyllic American Christmas with the gingham table cloths and the red plates ..... but now a day you I don't know if you would see that entire combination.

PLEASE do not post pictures of the elevator boy's spit. It's bad enough that my imagination created a pictured in my head and it now impaled there, don't need to see the actual 😉😜

I had to check SILENT auction. Made no sense to me. I think it's cruel! You wait all day, and then you lose for a penny. smile 
I LOVE this place and all these decorations, trees etc... And the pictures, OF COURSE! blue heart 
A secret. We have candy cane too now, but it's a recent thing. 5 Years ago I bought one and I found out it tastes like mint. I was in shock. I associated white-red with cream and strawberry. Never bought another one! smile 
I also never decorated a ginger bread house. Maybe you can find them somewhere, but it's not an Italian thing. You find them at IKEA... It's in pieces, and you have to build them up... Istructions in Swedish, of course.
God, Xmas in the US seems SO much funnier than the Itaian one!

Here's a recipe for ginger bread house ( I hope you can open it) since you know how to cut and measure I figured this one you could do. As to candy cane it now comes in multiple flavors and colors, no longer just mint. Xmas in the states is very much a money making industry smile

Naaaahhhh... 
It happens to me all the times, and I'm supersmart smile . This means you're supersmart too. 
Sometimes, supersmart people do little silly things, because it's hard to be supersmart 24/7. The Brain needs some rest. 
Unfortunately, this brain nap always happens when somebody's watching smile , but this is another story, my dear.
Tomorrow I'll read the link from my computer.
By now, thank you very much blue heart and goodnight

Probably...
But if you pay an extra, someone from Ikea comes to your house and build the ginger bread house for you smile
