Today the sun is at it’s lowest arc in the southern sky, something our ancestors have been celebrating for many millennia. We are headed to the in-laws to celebrate the solstice in the typical Spanish way, with food, wine, and merriment.
Our meager little tree with our modest collection of gifts. The big one is for me! This photo was taken with no flash nor any lights on in the room other than those of the tree.
The star at the top of the tree is a little evil-looking. It would make Charlie Brown flinch, anyway.
The following are some videos of the kinds of festivities we will hopefully be partaking in this year.
A Christmas procession in Mondragon, Spain Basque Country. Those crazy Baaaa-sques and their anthropomorphized sheep!
Marga’s family and a dumbfounded me singing typical Christmas Eve songs with typical instruments.
Golfing Santa and I wish you a wonderful penultimate weekend of 2007.
