I’m celebrating Christmas in the United States this year. It’s going to be exciting :) The way people decorate their houses here is crazy! There is a reason why newspapers at home reports “American conditions” once someone adorns their house with a couple of hundred brightly coloured lights. The last couple of years I’ve gone on expeditions to document this phenomenon. See my slideshow from 2004. I didn’t do that this year; there is no snow, so everywhere looks pretty sad and pathetic. Here is one picture, though, that I took this year.
