Christmas Season is here — Like it or Not

Personally, I prefer to wait until a week or two before Christmas before getting into the spirit of the season.  Karin likes to wait until after the American Thanksgiving before getting out the decorations.  This year, however, events are forcing our hand.

International Christmas Festival Prague

International Christmas Festival

There are two Christmas Bazaars that we have attended in the past and since both are good sources of English language books we wanted to participate again this year.  I stumbled on a notice of the first, sponsored by IWAP, International Women’s Association of Prague but we missed the Festival put on by the Diplomatic Spouse’s Association.
By the photo you can see we were in the minority. We did not enjoy this bazaar last time because it is way too crowded.

We very much enjoyed the one we attended on Saturday, 23 November!  First we found some good books, second we discovered an addition to our heirloom collection Czech folk kitchen pieceand third, we won a raffle prize–more good books. Yes, this a very good way to start the season.  I like it!
