The first Advent has passed, stores preprared their Christmas sections already some time ago and people are decorating their houses in- and outside. This year will be our first Christmas in Canada although we will probably spend most of it in Europe. However, it is interesting to see how much Canadians enjoy the Christmas season. Yesterday we took some pictures of the decoration at Mississauga´s Celebration Square which reminded me that I really have to look for a new tripod. My Slik Pro 613CF is small and light and great for travelling but the working height is very limited.
