Feel it in your...

On Sunday we had "the official opening for the festival season" in our little city. It was dark when we got into the center, and millions of people everywhere. But someone met Santa, had a great go in a bouncy castle, the Christmas-lights were pretty and fireworks splendid. All in all wonderful!

The images are taken by me (no anyone else to blame) and they're terrible, but I hope you can feel it in your fingers...

...and feel it in your toes...

...Christmas is all around (soon) me...

...and so the feeling grows!

Happy week, dear friends!


P.S. Oh yes, it's all here to get you into right spirits! And oh yes second time: We've set the date to see the love actually, with my dear sis. It's a tradition not to be missed.

I think 'Love Actually' is almost more traditional with you Mia than Christmas itself (almost)!! :)
Your photos are lovely and so nice to see the little man enjoying the fun and Santa of course! :)
Happy Tuesday,

"You know I love Christmas I always will,
My mind's made up the way that I feel!"

Hi Mia! I wish I could have joined you, because here I just don't have any Christmas feeling and can't believe it's so close. I think I need to put some Christmas lights and small things around to realize...before it's on my door ... the Christmas.
Enjoy the Christmas feeling and atmosphere there in Santa's home!

Hi Mia, Loved your pictures and song words! I love Christmas also, but here we don't really start until after Thanksgiving which is Thursday. Then the decorations come out and the house is dressed up for Santa!! Thanks for sharing all your fun with us. xoRobin❤

I loved sharing a little of your Christmassy atmosphere, Mia! The Love Actually cd and dvd are ready and waiting here...Christmas is very nearly all around us....
Have a great week.

Mia said...

Thank you, Vivienne!

I (meaning we, sis&I) love the movie, and Christmas is not Christmas without it!

It's raining here (not snowing!) so the movies and songs help with the festive spirits!


Mia said...

I know, Jane, it's the most wonderful time of the year! Yippee! Let's enjoy!

Many happy greetings from rainy (!!) Finland!


Mia said...

Dear Anne,

Happy Wednesday!

The Christmas-season is now officially opened both at yours and here, yippee! Wishing you happiest festive-time and all the best for your family too!


Mia said...

Hi Teje,

It's raining now and the snow is melting as I write to you so the holiday-spirits are to be found somewhere but white nature ;) So movies, mags, songs it is!

Wishing you the most wonderful week!


Mia said...

Dear Robin,

Happy you to get an early start - we only dress the tree on 23rd of December in our family! But 6th of Dec. is our Independence Day and then we really start putting the other Christmas decoration everywhere...So only a week and half to go!

Happy week, dear friend!


Mia said...

Hello Helen,

I am enjoying the Christmas magazines and mullet wine here (and listen the rain!) and it's quite cozy - wishing you a wonderful, cozy and happy week to you too!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
