It is only three days until Christmas. I think I need to add a little spirit to my postings. Over the years we have collected Christmas ornaments during our various travels. This one is from a kindle mart in Lubeck, Germany. One evening after work, several of my German work associates and I went out for a “grog or two” in the town square. The square was filled with little booths serving different libations and selling all sorts of Christmas gifts. It was so packed that I could hardly walk. Every one was jovial and full of Christmas spirit. It was what I imagined an old-time Christmas season would be. I found a little booth filled with wood ornaments and could not help buying a couple as I was downing my beverage.
Every time I look at this little bi-plane and angel, I think of my German friends and the special evening we had in the Lubeck town square.
