Preparing for the traditional Advent celebration.....

Yes, I'm at it and have been since last weekend, but today it was time to iron the Christmas curtains and put them up. Also all the Christmas cloths were ironed and placed. We also have this little Advent tree (like a little Christmas tree but without all the decorations) with just lights.

We also have a little "Christmas town" welcoming people in the hall. It changes colors all the time and it's very decorative.
Yesterday I took a break from all the preparations and went to the Rheumatic association where I also am planning a Christmas celebration with dinner for around 40 active chairpeople. I met with my friend in the "party committé" and we went to order everything for next Thursday. 
Then I had a budget meeting before heading off to the Royal Opera where I saw Puccini's Turandot. A totally magic evening and the beautiful Nessun Dorma sang extremely well and it gave me chills all over. 
Even the Opera house was Christmas decorated. In the entrance hall the biggest tree I've seen, I think. And flanking the big beautiful red carpet stair up to the stalls were 2 beautiful Christmas trees.
Tomorrow I will continue with cooking and more decorating.

Have a good day, I think you have black Friday or something like that (USA) when everything is very very cheap?

Take care!
