Time for a new one, I think!
And here goes:
A Secret Christmas Miracle
Not far from my home are fields, meadows and gardens, like allotments, and many fruit trees and shrubs. Of course now, in wintertime, they are all leafless. And since a few years, on two of those trees, over night appear a lot of christmas baubles in different colours.
It looks beautiful, especially when sunlight is shining on and reflecting off them. Because it is so unexpected, everybody walking by stops for a rest, and I think that is the intention of this miracle secret action.
Recently there was an article in our daily newspaper, saying that nobody knows who keeps doing this. Nobody has seen the baubles being put up, it must happen over night. And after Christmas, also over night, the ornaments vanish until the next year, next Christmas time.
Thanks to the person who brings a little more joy to the world.
In this spirit I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and peaceful New Year.

Yes, I've showed you these pictures before, but trust me, the trees look pretty much the same this year with even the weather being similar; too mild for Christmas, so we're in for a grey-brown-green Christmas instead of a white one.
I can't say I'm sorry about this; much as I like looking at Winter Wonderland from my kitchen window, I prefer the rail tracks snow-free when I am travelling, which I will be doing on Christmas Day and Boxing Day (to and from O.K.'s, you guessed it).
The trees with the baubles were a real surprise when my Mum and I came across them for the first time some years ago. We always assumed the folks from the nearby kindergarden or elementary school or church community were behind it, and so we were amazed to learn from the newspaper that in fact it is a secret as to who is responsible for this unexpected beauty on the fields.
