It’s officially Christmas season in Geneva.
My favorite addition is the large Sapine de Noël (Christmas Tree) at Place du Molard. Each morning I walked to the gym, I noted its progress.
In our household as well, our tree has been fully decorated. However, it pales in size compared to the one in Place du Molard. While we bought the largest the store offered, I am still taller than it.
Because we did not bring any decorations with us in the move, we have been accumulating ornaments from some places we’ve traveled, to complement our paper ones we made last year. These include a bike from Brugge, some tiny clogs from Amsterdam, a snowy chalet from Chamonix, a hot air balloon from Chateaux-D’Oex:
Sometimes, when we couldn’t find an ornament, we had to get creative. Take this airplane bottle of Scotch for example. Hey, we had to have something from Scotland!
We will miss going back to the States this year for sure. However, it does feel good to be surrounded by the signs of Christmas already in Geneva.
