Our Winter Holiday
We went to see grandma and granddaddy for a few days. We went sledging, it started snowing on our very first day, we had it well planned.
The puppet theatre on the fourth picture is a pretty amazing case. I don't know how common these are but this one hasn't changed since it started to play some hundred years ago. Same old puppets, same backdrops, same sound effects. The fairy tales are kind of classy and kids stamp their feet before beginning the same way like we used to do when we were little. The entrance fee was equal to 0,50 euro.
The interesting thing is that the theatre isn't considered rare, antique, unique or too old, although people are aware that it is old, but they don't go there for the antiquity of it. It is a theatre that has always been like that, it lives in no time and parents keep sending their kids there not because of tradition, but because there is nothing else there.
