Today I got this Christmas bouquet from my mother. I am mesmerized by it's beauty and the delicate combination of colour. Hyacinths are my all time favorite Christmas flower.
I have spent the day with my loved ones. We have done the last Christmas shopping, some cheese and fruit, visited a cathedral and admired a nativity scene there built by master Franco Artese. It had a magnificent lighting system which created an illusion of sunrise and sunset. At "night" there was also a shooting star in the sky and the music created a holy atmosphere. I truly enjoyed that visit.
Let Christmas come! I wish you a blessed and happy Christmas time!
Ps. Now it is time for a little late night snack. We are having cheese and ham, ginger breads, sugar almonds and a little chocolate, too.
