The Christmas tree on Stephansplatz in the city center, right next to St. Stephen´s Cathedral... In Austria we are celebrating Christmas this very night: The presents are placed under the Christmas tree which is lit for the first time and the whole family gathers to sing Christmas Carols. Young children believe that the presents are brought to them, as a reward for good behaviour, by the "Christkind" (Christ Child) who is also responsible for the decoration of the tree. My very personal programme for today: In the morning I will have brunch with some girlfriends and in the evening I will celebrate with my parents.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas!! Frohe Weihnachten!!
