Yesterday, as I was walking around town, I noticed something that surprised me. Christmas has begun......and it is only October 7th. Store windows were filled with wreaths and tinsel and St. Nicholas was displayed every where. It seems like Christmas comes earlier every year but it is not even Halloween.
The first display that I came across at one of my favorite shops:
This is getting us really excited for the upcoming Christmas markets that will pop up in all German towns.
Since we will be flying home before Christmas I am going to follow the german way by starting the process of decorating our flat on November 1st. Counting down the days............
