This post was supposed to go up days earlier but let's just say…something got broke on the blog and a bunch of people fixed it. Pretty cool!Anyway, here's the roundup for Christmas pictures and stories.
I think this one interests me the most:Brittany and I went to Naper Settlement and we found many interesting things. One of the first things we saw, after we settled in our chapel pew was this-
oh yes, the classic retelling of a Christmas Carol, all done by shadow puppets. Victorian, of course. What's not for a girl to love?
and my personal favorite, sans Tiny Tim. And yes, that is the ghost of christmas present. Believe it. Brittany commented that it was a bit freaky, and it was.
We also saw a Flea Circus but sadly, none of the pictures turned out very well. Should that be any surprise?
I did not take a picture of this flea but I wanted you to get the idea. Anyway, moving along, we left the chapel after the flea circus and went along to another chapel where there were a lot of gingerbread houses (and boats) on display.
A tiny detail of one of the tiny houses. After that, we milled around, went on a tour of a house and I took a surreptitious picture of this man. He had a stream of children following him, giggling. When he would halt and fling himself around, they would all get nervous and start to back away. But as soon as he took off, the giggling crowd started after him again. Can you guess who it is?
Did I mention he had startling ice blue eyes and I was scared to death lest he address me?
