Jeff de Bruges chocolates for Christmas

To encourage business owners to decorate their shop windows during the holiday season, the city sponsors a contest during December. There is a small local prize for the winner, but from what we understand the motivation is more about being part of the community; joining in with the others rather than trying to outdo someone else. We walked around the main shopping streets and got some shots of our favorites; sometimes the entire storefront and occasionally just one ornament tucked among many. Enjoy the show!

While living in North, Central and South America, in the middle of the Caribbean and the Pacific Ocean, and now in Europe, my passion has remained the same: travel and meeting new friends.

  2. The fourth picture is amazing! Thanks for sharing 🙂 Followed!
    Btw, I recently posted about the big question in our lives, could you take a look?


  3. How beautiful they are! They would have all caught my eye but I love the green garlands and trees in the 4th and 6th pictures the best! But I’d want a gift from the jewelry store the most!
