Happy Holidays one and all

Hi everybody,

Here's wishing you happy Christmas, happy holidays, happy everything....

At Moo Mania the challenge is 'merry Christmas', and I am sharing these tags I made for Tag Tuesday.

I saw this lovely fountain yesterday in Ratingen:

The musicians were playing wonderful Christmas melodies:

This fountain is next to the Church:

Some of my feathered visitors today:

Have a great day, and wonderful holidays, whatever you celebrate!

Take care of yourselves, and thanks for coming by.

See you again on Friday, I'm taking a day off!
