I know its a bit past Saint Nicholas day, but my nostalgia for home (Germany- the Christmas markets, the villages, the Gluhwein!) is getting the best of me. If Knecht Ruprecht is new to anyone- he is the Saints nasty sidekick who carries around a bundle of switches for those who have misbehaved...watch out!

Today we get our tree! We've already stocked up on some spiced wine, and Stollen to help our nostalgia for home, and a bag of wonderful little decorations from The Paris Market (lots of mushrooms, pinecones and mercury glass) for the tree. So exciting!
