|This is my dining room window at present. The seven dwarfs (I love them) have been there for some years. But the Russian Santa Claus, or rather Father Frost, as its Russian name is, is new. I hesitated when I bought him, because he was rather expensive, handmade of wood. But I do not regret it, I love him! Would like one in red suit too, as a comrade. The little figure near him is a Nativity scene from Peru, with a volcano, El Misti, behind. And the poinsetta is a typical Christmas flower here. In the houses people use to have electric chandeliers in every window. We have it only in some windows. This is a dark period of the year for us up North.|
