Woo hoo, it’s December! Just a couple more weeks before the kids are on their holiday break and then it’s Christmas. Can’t wait!
CAROLINE, ENGLAND These are a little late, but here in the UK, on Nov 5th we have a celebration called 'Guy Fawkes' ~ it's all about foiling a plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament (a good thing ~ it's such a beautiful building!) ~ it's a little barbaric really; we put a 'guy' (a stuffed dummy) on the top of a bonfire and set him alight! But, of course, after the big blazing bonfire and the fireworks are great fun! :D MAY, GERMANY A family preparing Rattan wreaths at the Christmas market.

Is your to-do list as long as ours or are you one of those super-organized people who have already finished all their Christmas shopping two weeks ago?
