World of Christmas

"Noël autour du monde", ("Make Your Own World of Christmas" in its original english version)  by Rosemary Lowndes and Claude Kailer, is a book coming from my childhood, very dear to me. I have now the joy to share it with Elsa, every year for Christmas. It is composed of paper decorations to cut out and assemble into figures and sceneries from Christmas traditions all over the world. As a child I could spend hours daydreaming about them, inventing stories about the little figures' lives in their far away lands... Sweden, Italy, Russia,  ... Of course I had my favourite ones ... And now Elsa can play with them too and have her own stories and dreams...

Merry Christmas!... all around the world.
