LikeLiked by 1 person Thanks so much and Merry Xmas!! LikeLike Great selection of photos. Love the nighttime shots, or possibly late afternoon in your part of the world! The waterfront sparkles a good deal more with the lights on, and I liked the sheepskins on the cafe seats. Do people sit outside this time of year? I hope you and your family have a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year. LikeLiked by 1 person Thanks, Graham! They aren’t nighttime shots, they are daytime shots! Unfortunately. People don’t sit outside, except smokers who will sit outside in any weather, smoking like it’s summer. I wish you a beautiful Christmas, too!

LikeLiked by 1 person Helsinki usually gets snow in February… and it stays around until May, when everyone else in Europe is already having sunny picnics! LikeLiked by 1 person Interesting.

Good thing to eat to keep the cold out! Your photos make Helsinki look very cold but I love the light effect with the low sun. Merry Christmas! LikeLiked by 1 person Hah! We cheated and bought baked parts that just needed assembling and decorating! The kids did the decorating – definitely the best part of having a gingerbread house, if you ask me! As for the weather, it was -12C today and with the wind factor, the weather report told us it ”felt like -20C”🥶 Merry Christmas! LikeLiked by 1 person funny to think how cold it must be there as we are sweltering in a hot summer! merry xmas. LikeLiked by 1 person I wouldn’t mind having a summery Christmas but what can you do. It’s cold and dark here, no snow (which is normal: I don’t remember a single white Xmas while I’ve lived in Helsinki). Merry Xmas, Sherry! LikeLike Lovely array of pictures.

And I enjoy posts like these, because I’ll just imagine being in your part of the world, so I do stare at each photo for a good number of seconds, lol. Looks cold and nice, which is a far cry from my tropical Malaysia. Anyhoo, saw that I had linked to this post, but never really commented on it. Thanks for this post! LikeLiked by 2 people Thanks, Stuart! ☺️ I grew up in the tropics and never liked winter or how dark it is. But I’ve noticed my readers like my winter pics, hahah, I guess it looks nice from a distance!! 🙃 LikeLiked by 1 person Those are some beautiful random clicks, absolutely like what I see, do you also IG?
