The Holiday Season has officially started for me.
Fah Lah Lah Lah Lah
Lah Lah Lah Lah
Swisssh and Starlite Radio went all Christmas at noon today. I've loaded more than 100 new Christmas songs on Swisssh. Not quite as many on Starlite.
Outdoor decorations went up in the warm weather last week.
I had worked on the Christmas Swisssh Website page a few days ago and uploaded that Thursday Night in advance of November 20th. Facebook all changed to reflect the Christmas Season as well.
I threw decorations on two slim indoor trees today. Took about an hour.
Still our family room tree to be decorated. Lots of time for that. Now you're up to date with my Christmas decorating.
Oh, I tried to watch the movie "Elf" tonight.
What a piece of shit.
Moving on...
Terrible tragedy those killings in Paris last week. We are looking at going to Europe for a few days.
We were thinking of Paris and then to London on the Eurostar through the Chunnel. We did that two years back. However, with Paris climbing out of the ashes of terror, Munich and the Christmas Market could be the ticket.
Mainz Christmas Market
I love the German Markets. They are more "old" world Christmas than the market in London's Hyde Park which features a huge midway too.
Paris is all white and blue. Very pristine and beautiful to be sure right on the Champs Elysees at the Place de la Concorde end- but very expensive too.
I would expect the Holiday spirit feels rather "dampened" this year in Paris but on the other hand, Parisiennes are robust and love life, so they move along. They love their outdoor cafes, their café and their art and culture and nobody will take that from them.
I would like to go to the Toronto Christmas Market in December in the Distillery District. It is truly worth the drive especially as it grows closer to Christmas Day. Holiday things to buy from the little "huts". Lots of places to sit and eat, enjoy an adult beverage of just a coffee or hot chocolate. I bought a couple of Christmas Decorations in a quaint little shop three years ago. The façade of the shop is below. Really Christmassy inside.

That's one of the greatest things about the Christmas Season. So many things to do and see and buy it's impossible to see or do everything and that is one of the charms of the hustle bustle of this Holiday Season.
