Christmas Village

We went back to this town to take in the Christmas festivities Friday night. It's a fun town anyway, but they had tons of characters walking around and horse drawn carriages riding up and down the cobble streets. Here's J and Abbey with Saint Nicholas. Good thing we were wearing our neutral gang colors--what sign is St Nick trying to pull?

**Duh-leted. See comment section :) I remained concerned.**

Seriously, that's not 'I Love You'. Someone fill me in on this one or I will remain concerned.

There were carolers, Mrs. Clause, the Sugar Plum Fairy, and Santa Clauses from different countries. Everyone stayed in character--even Scrooge was arguing with people walking by. There were street vendors making roasted chestnuts and hot cider, I loved it. The shops are too expensive so all I wanted to find was some good fudge. Oh boy. Did we ever find it.

I loved the store, this sign inside, the shelves and shelves of candy, and of course the fudge. I even loved the doorway outside and the little girl hanging out on the step.

What a fun holiday event! That little girl on the steps looks so grown up. Did you take her home with you? She's adorable.

Is it just me or does St Nick look like a terrorist?

I think saint Nick is saying 7 in sign language.

My husband used to do taxes for people and their company had a $15 "jerk fee" for difficult customers. =)
Hope you had a merry Christmas!

That is the sign for the devil - two horns, and a tail. That's what they do for Arizona Sun Devils.

Hmm, I am surprised St Nicholas has an affiliation with any team. J laughed and laughed when he saw that picture and explained what HE thought it meant. I was mortified, and so, the picture is gone.
