- Our tree is an intellectual.
- Yes, he is.
- His appearance doesn't belong to his priorities.
- No. He is very hairy. He is a hippie guy.
The decorations are made of glass and it is common here to have them on the tree. All the other trees in this country are decorated much more richly. We decided that we didn't like it and we purified it. Most of the decorations are from the bazar on Chlumova street round the corner. Ten years ago I would say that this is a communist tree, pointing to the fact that not only it looks poor like those decorated with apathy and standing lonely in a hall of a corporate company but it also has decorations used at that time despite most of them date back to the First Republic i.e. before 1939, but today I call it a Retro Christmas Tree.
These geometric ones I like the most this year.
I told Dominik that the tree was decorated by the Baby Jesus who came through a window into our apartment last night. And he wagged his finger, how dares he, little Jesus, to crawl through the window! In Christmas circumstances he looks on the picture like he is setting off on a reindeer.
