Holidays are coming...

...Holidays are coming.

I'm sure that this image of Santa is well known all around the world - it is the Coca Cola Santa...
...he is such a cheerful, jolly image that brings a 'feel good' factor to the holidays.

I received a very excited email from my niece out in Germany.

Apparently the lorries from the cola advert are regularly seen touring around Europe and arrangements had been made for one to stop off at one of the UK bases near to where my niece's husband is stationed. They went to have a look and took some photos.
Kristy said the lorries are HUGE and it was quite difficult getting decent pics with the lights & the darkness over such a long distance.
However, they did manage to get these and although they are a bit dark it is still lovely to have them as a keepsake.
Dan & Kristy took a neighbour's 6yr old to see the Santa that was also there.
Overall though, I think Kristy was the most excite one amongst them LOL
Certainly something to put in the scrapbook as a lovely memory.

Now I know why her email was so hyper LOL........................
