Merry christmas!!

a christmas tree for christmas eve...... :) in dutch: fijne kerstdagen to all of you!!
this tree is in a dutch mall, in my opinion quite a difference as compared to us shopping malls. almost all american malls (well, ofcourse the ones i have been to so far) give me such a sad feeling. but, although i think this building is quite a bit more pretty, this is a sad mall too...... this is magna plaza in amsterdam, a former post office, built in 1899, and converted to shopping mall in 1990. in my tourist guide i would advice to go there just to see the building (and i would have to find out why the post office had to be that huge), but the shops are not that interesting; yesterday i saw that many shops were vacant.
anyways.. enjoy your christmas!

this tree had the added feature of lighting - effect shooting up and down it.. a little known fact of course... :)

What a pretty picture! That would be something to see in person.
I avoid malls at all costs. Too much stuff, too many people...not for me.
