Have you started with your Christmas decorating? I haven't yet. Not because I don't want to but because I won't be home until the 22nd. Anyway, the tradition in Argentina is to put up the Christmas tree and decorations on the 8th. What is it like in your country? Do you have a fixed date or do you just start decorating sometime near Christmas or whenever you are ready? Another tradition in Argentina is that on Christmas eve, at exactly 12 o'clock, the whole country goes nuts with fireworks! And it goes on for at least half an hour. A fantastic sight -and noise- which I love. I know this is not done in Brazil, for example. They use fireworks whenever a football team scores a goal or wins, and for New Year too, but not for Christmas.
And, talking about Christmas, today I'd like to show you a selection of photographs from campagne-decoration to get you inspired.
