Last week, a friend of mine brought me flowers. I was giving her fir branches since we had bought our Christmas tree and had to cut off few bottom branches. So we had our Christmas tree in the room. And she brought me flowers that she had picked the same day in her garden, just before the frost stroke down.
And we put up our Nativity scene, too. A complete one. With baby Jesus and the three Mags from the East. Dominik was curious what little Ježíšek looks like. So I pulled the figures out and we put the whole scene together. Little Jesus brings presents to every family on Christmas Eve, so all the presents magically appear under the tree after dinner. He comes invisible through the window. I had always imagined him as a grown up man with a goatee and a snowy face like I used to see him on a painting in my grandma's house.
