Wonderful photo from Mitch as banner, I really liked that photo.
Thanks for hosting Belita.
Poinsettia is the local store with some glitter. We call them Christmas star translated from German. I always have one at home every year.
Our neighbours are decorating their balconies.
And what would Christmas be without Mistletoe. They are actually a parasitic growth and attach themselves to the trees. They look very attractive in their bunches hanging on the trees and are very common in our area. This is actually a coloured photo, but it seemed to be a black, grey and white day.
The next door neighbour's decoration.
And the local supermarket were running a special offer. You got a card and for every 20 Swiss francs you spent you got a sticky for the card. When the card is full you can choose from 3 teddy bears. I managed to get all three within 2 weeks, and now have a fourth bear - does anyone want a teddy bear? They are easy to look after, do not need food, just a hug now and again.
