Christmas is fast approaching....
you just cant miss it here in Berlin.
The City is filled with the smell of the season from
all the Christmas Markets.
Twinkling lights sparkling wherever
and there are pretty reminders of the
most wonderful time of the year.
I loved this sweet little display
outside a equally cute little shop
in the Holländisches Viertel (Dutch quarters)
I have noticed a real shift in Berlin & Potsdam
away from bright multi coloured lights
to much more traditional lighting
"back to the roots" so to speak.
And as I have never been a fan of the big flashing lights,
I'm thrilled to see
the return to a more traditional German Christmas lighting!!!
Without all these decorations though
you could be forgiven for claiming blissful
ignorance to the fact that Christmas is only hours away,
as the weather is anything but traditional.
Frosty the Snowman....
has to be in chocolate this year,
as snow is nowhere in sight.
The weather really not even giving a tiny hint of this season.
So unseasonable mild....
we can only enjoy frost crystals in glass for now.
Have a lovely day
