Awaiting christmas - part 1
While I ran some errands in town today I took my camera with me as I was looking for some shots of what I believe is almost the best part of Christmas: the few weeks beforehand.
The anticipation. The secret joy when finding a particularly fitting or lovely present for a friend or family member. The disbelieve at some decoration items. Testing if the "Stollen" and "Speculatius" are still as good as last year etc.etc...
Then I ran into this lot. Look at them.
They are ready for it. Some of them will bravely master a hot belly and prickly incense smoke leaving their mouths, others will put their teeth into many a nutshell. Time and time again, dreading the possible event of hitting on a pecan or a stubborn hazelnut. You go boys! God knows, you ain't pretty but what would Christmas be without you?
