A CHRISTMAS FAIRYTALE



Do you, like us, have a bit of a hard time with too much of that traditional Christmas decoration in colours like red, green, gold? Do you not think that tacky, artificial lighting, glitter and a tons of Santas and his little helpers are the best thing in the world? But still - do you have a kid in the house, and you find it a bit unfair just to say "no" to all that kind of stuff??? Well, maybe this could be an idea for you too. Simply use an old wooden apple box and create a little Christmas universe in here - then all the Santas and elves are limited to one little area - but is still there. Our little guy loves it, and to be honest - we quite enjoy it ourselves too :-)
