Christmas Card '05

From last night's trip to the Christmas markets. There are a couple more at my Flickr account, if you're interested. What we have here is a crowd of Rauchermännchen, little smoking-men. You twist them at the waist and they come apart, revealing a place where you can put a cone of incense. Then, after you put them back together, they puff smoke through the round hole.

Anyway, I associate them with Christmas here, so they make a good motif for this year's Berlin Christmas card.

Happy Christmas, my big smoking man. Heading to Virginia, and the Southern Gothic Christmas. Forecast calls for the three Bs: biddies, barbecue and bourbon. yee-haw.
