THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Tradition

Tradition


For the past thirty plus years…the first weekend in December… 

has been set aside…

by MGW and boys

(when they were old enough)…

to erect our Christmas tree.

 

Last year, 2016…

while travelling in Europe…

MGW noticed some Christmas shops,

open in September…

and our tree took on… 

an international flavour…

with baubles from… 

most of the cities we visited.

This year…

my quick trip to Arras, France….

had an important part to it. 

 

Buy some Arras Christmas baubles please,

was the directive. 

I soon discovered that not all European towns/cities

had a year round Christmas shop.

But Dubai did last year.

However, I did manage to find two

at one of the Arras shops.

This was a leftover from 2016 Christmas…

on the back was an image which I will always

associate with Arras’ two main squares…namely

Place des Heros and La Grand Place

Both have added to the

international flavour of our Christmas tree.

This has also  commenced another tradition

in our household and that is to purchase

a Christmas decoration from each town,

city or country we visit.

As usual we don’t have an Australian decoration…yet! 🙂
