December 16: Mistletoe
I knew I didn't have any mistletoe in the house (and I'm not even sure if this is something that the Dutch consider part of a Christmas tradition); but I then realized I didn't know what it actually looked like. Thanks, Google!
December 17: Silent Night
I think it's hard not to think of the star over Bethlehem when thinking about "Silent Night".
December 18: Santa
We've had this Santa for a very long time. When we got married, it came along in the box of Mark's ornaments from childhood. And he fits nicely on our red chairs.
December 19: Cookie
My friend made some delicious German Christmas cookies and brought them over to share. Lekker!
December 20: Candy Cane
This garland is extra delicious with the candy cane. And Little Man is always happy to have snoepjes (sweets) in close range.
December 21: Party
No "normal" Christmas party for us this year - but there's nothing wrong with a cookie making party! A total of 5 different kinds of cookies came out of this endeavor.
