Alsace blanc Crimbo

Lots of snow overnight mean we have a veritable white Christmas and it’s still falling.  The picture shows our courtyard under centimetres of snow more than covering the wheel of my bike.  I love the way someone is OCD about the bins that they not only line up but also the handles all have to face the same way.  Evey week someone goes to the trouble to put them in a nice neat line facing the right way, someone with too much time on their hands.

The next picture shows the snow on our balcony.  Christmas was welcomed in with an appropriate drink at midnight watching the wonderful campness of the George Cukor directed Les Girls.  After listening to the best Christmas song ever (Which you’ll have to wait for) the soundtrack is being supplied by Pop Slags Spotify playlist of the best pop of 2010 they tweeted but you can find here.

We’ve already spoken to some family elsewhere in the World, we will talk to more later.  Shortly it will be time for smoked salmon on pieces of bread and presents under the tree will be opened.  Later there will, of course, be turkey with all the trimmings accompanied by a decent vintage.  There will not be a Christmas message from the Queen or anyone else.

The picture above shows the snow looking left from our balcony the last one shows the view to the right showing that even on Christmas Day the trams in Strasbourg are working.

I would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and very Happy New Year.

Fairytale of New York

The Pogues and the wonderful Kirsty MacKoll.  The best Christmas song ever, enjoy:
