First of all, a Merry Christmas or a happy whatever other seasonal holiday you may celebrate.
We’ve had some more snow overnight. This is the first time since the 1980s that we’ve had snow on all three days of Christmas (Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day).
This was another quiet day. For lunch, we had pork curry, as every year. The recipe is the same curry that was served aboard the vessels of the shipping company Norddeutscher Lloyd. It’s still one of my favourite foods.
And now for some photos behind the cut:
This is our Christmas tree in all its glory, complete with lit candles. I even managed to procure 100% beeswax candles this year. Unfortunately, the flash in my camera is too bright, which somewhat ruins the atmosphere.
Here is a closeup of the tree. Some of the ornaments date from the 1960s and are fragile as hell. Also note the lit candles.
Wrapped presents, mine. I won the unwrapped books in this giveaway at the Paperback Writer blog and since they arrived two days before Christmas, I decided to put them under the tree as well.
More wrapped presents. These are my parents’. The plate in the middle contains crocheted Christmas cookies.
And here’s a close-up view of the crochet Christmas cookies I made.
That’s me, unwrapping presents.
And here’s a look at my presents. I’m really looking forward to digging into those books. If you look closely, you can also see the two antique figurines I bought this Tuesday.
