Jingle bell rock..:)

In exactly 3 weeks, our little village will be all lit up for Christmas. The men from the municipality will go around town in small trucks with big ladders to string the lights. A row of them begin right outside my kitchen window that it's quite comforting to see them on a dark cold winter's night.

The picture above is from last year. You can see that we had our first snow fall during the last week of November. I have predicted that this year, we are not gonna see the white flakes till January..:) It's just a feeling and I know I am gonna be right.

The countdown to our magical christmas markets too have begun. Germany's Weinachtsmarkt are world famous for their gluhwein(hot spiced wine) and yummy gingerbreads and not to forget the many handmade decorations on sale.
As I begin my countdown, the christmas carols are softly playing on this cold autumn day in the warmth of my home. I know not if it's too early, but what I do know is that my heart is filled with joy and my spirits are definitely high...:)
