Christmas Days

Christmas Days
Hey Everyone! :twinkles:
How were your Christmas days? Despite the unusual weather for December the atmosphere during the last few days was pretty festive. What I liked most in the last few days was the peaceful silence. All the people were celebrating Christmas or other festivities with their beloved ones so there were practically no cars driving on the streets. On the 24th we celebrated with my family at my brother’s house. Silvankun and I got hold of a cute little Christmas tree only two days before the 24th and we decorated it all together on Christmas eve. The dinner was improvised and simple but very delicious. Oven-baked salmon, salt potatoes, salad and bread with butter. Of course there were many mandarins, nuts, chocolate and other sweet treats.

I like Foie gras and fancy table decorations but I was very happy just to be together with the most important people in my life and have this humble Christmas dinner with them. As kids we used to open the presents on the 25th but due to some coordination problems we decided to open them all together on Christmas eve.

On the 26th Silvankun and I got up early and went to buy some fresh croissants. The sun was shining beautifully so we decided to go for a walk and as we arrived on top of the hill we were generosly rewarded with one of the most stunning views I’ve seen of Zurich. There were hundreds of fuming smokestacks and this opaque veil covering parts of the city. Luckily I had my cam with me and with many other photographs beside me I started taking pictures. The scenery was so peaceful and I felt so fresh that I thought it was the first day of the new year.

I’ll be back soon sunshines!
