It is the season to be merry


It is the season to be merry
And to share some of our goody
Let’s think of the poor and the homeless
And in our own ways, show our kindness
We could bake, make or cook something sweet and tasty

Christmas cocktails, mulled wine or punch
With family or loved ones for lunch
Visiting a lonely neighbour
Treating children for chips and burger
Ringing our mother and sending her flower bunch

Spreading love and happiness
Makes us happy that’s a bonus
Celebrate the birth of our Lord
Making music in our keyboard
It’s the time to be courageous and boisterous

We light the candles in darkness
And with snowfall as a bonus
Rice porridge and cinnamon loaves
House full of oranges with cloves

Under the Christmas tree are gifts
Spirit of family to lift
No stress in cooking on stove
House full of oranges with cloves

We’re glistering in excitement
Chestnuts on fire and roast pheasant
All the trimmings and Christmas troves
House full of oranges with cloves

We light the candles in darkness
House full of oranges with cloves*

Birthday and Christkindlmarkt

Hello everyone from a stormy Munich. We’ve just got back from our morning swim, even though it was very windy outside. Just swam indoors most of the time. The jacuzzi is still great!

Anyway, last weekend, I celebrated my birthday. I’ve got a lovely gold bracelet from Him Indoors, pyjamas from parents-in-law, cardigan from cousin B, cards and FB greetings from families and friends. Thanks everyone!


We went to the Christkindlmarkt, first in Münchner Freiheit, the “arty” one, lots of hand-mades and sculptures in the market.

Then to Marienplatz, with the big Christmas tree in front of the town hall. We had sausages and mulled wine and looked around the stalls.

And in the evening, we went to our favourite Greek restaurant with friends N and R. Then went back to our place for a bottle of champagne and some mince pies. It was a wonderful birthday! Very grateful!
