As older expats with all of our family back in the US we miss sharing Christmas with children. So when ever we can we join in the family fun where ever we are living. We are still young at heart after all.
In Prague and many other parts of Europe. Dec 5th is naughty or nice night for younger children. (Of course you can imagine the fun the adults have with the theme in the night clubs.) Karin and I headed for the center of it all, Old Town Square, as soon as it got dark. For once it seemed local families out numbered the tourists. The square was as beautiful and exciting as always but since this was our second time for this event we left after only one mulled wine each.
It was early yet so we decided to check out our local square. It
definitely has a more home town feel. I can’t do justice to the atmosphere in either square so I will highlight another of Karin’s evocative photo journals.
She makes an entertaining story of it all.
