Galeries Lafayette - Paris

I have a new found cousin (2nd)
il adore Paris, tout autant que moi!
(He adores Paris just as much as me)
Julian was  there recently
for a brief visit and took this photo.
How wonderful the store looks!!
Julian and I have never met, hopefully we
will soon and you never know it could
be in Paris!!
He has a brother and sister who
I have also  never met, they both live in
another place I ♥♥... Italy.
My cousin Valerie ( their mum ) and Gianni
 (their dad), live in Italy.  Valerie and I have
not seen each other since 1966. 
We also only spoke to each other for the
first time since then the other month.
I found Julian and his siblings through Facebook,
along with other members of my father's
side of the family.
The countries they live in are ...
Luxembourg, Italy, Malta, Denmark and South Africa!!
So I think I better get my ticket booked to visit
my cousin very very soon!! ♥

St Nicholas Day - 6th December - How do you celebrate?

Happy St Nicholas Day to you all....

Do you or your country celebrate??

According to this website,
we do celebrate it in the UK .. 
  I have never heard any mention 
of the day here, so might just 
be in a few towns.. !!

I did celebrate when 
I was a little girl
and lived 
in  Holland.

I am sure there are
wonderful Festas going
on around the world, hope
you get to enjoy and celebrate
at one!
