On Sunday DH and I went out with our friend Sarah to see the decorations and do some window shopping.
Look what we found!:
Peat! Apparently sold for the nativity scenes, or Belens. They really take it seriously here. We saw a beautiful one last night, but sadly there is no pictures as I though it impolite to play tourist in the midst of such faith.
I love these little cactus Santas!
Usually these "signs" just have advertisement posters facing three sides, but yesterday we discovered that they all had Christmas trees, how cool!
Down the middle of the Castellana (big street) there is a open air (Christmas?) market.
Two welcoming holiday figures welcome you to the Nuevos Ministerios plaza.
I do not think this last picture was ment to be holiday oriented, but I am going to include it anyway.
OK I am off to Barcelona for my first holiday with the in-laws (and some yarn shopping).
I hope that you and yours have a wonderful week/holiday!
