Magic in the Air

I am sitting here in the Hid café, watching the snow fall softly and quietly outside the window. I'm trying not to think about the fact that the weather report is predicting rain here in Debrecen on Christmas Day. Hopefully that will not be the case!

Yesterday was my last day of teaching before Christmas break. I brought in my laptop to show my classes some Christmas films such as "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" and "A Christmas Carol."

I decided to take a photo with my favorite class {9G} but unfortunately only four of the six were there. I also brought in some chocolate for them to enjoy while they watched the film. I love these kids!

After my lessons, I was making my way back to the Bridge building from my bus stop. I was walking along one of the more run-down and ugly side streets in Debrecen when suddenly, something so lovely caught my eye that I literally stopped dead in my tracks.

I came across this perfectly Christmasy-looking little bush.

I admired it for several moments. It was such an unexpected surprise.

It just goes to show that beauty can be found in the most unlikely of places.

Tonight, I'm going to get all dressed up to attend a Christmas concert in the city center. My heart is filled with so much joy this time of year. Christmas Carols are playing constantly like a soundtrack in my mind, and it truly feels like magic is in the air.

I hope you all are having magical Christmas seasons as well......
