thank You.....I think they are very cute and beautifull....if had a little more money, I´d buy them myself...but the sending to Germany and the paying is kinda expensive when You don´t have a credit card (they are not so common in Germany....we usually only pay with those EC-Bankcards)

Definitely nostalgic when it comes to Christmas ! Love the old traditions and vintange decorations, using lots of greens and home made things. People carolling in the streets, going to midnight mass, etc....

I with the both group. Certain smells and sights also take me back to Christmas when I was a kid, especailly the smell of scotch tape. LOL! I enjoy the older traditions and decorations we have but equally enjoy creating new one and adding to our decorations with newer modern pieces.

candy cane has shown a merry disposition
I am slightly modern, but tend to be more traditional and, of course, nostalgic.

I feel as though I'm a great mix of both. I love watching old films and listening to Christmas tunes by Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby, but I also love "new" Christmas classics like Love Actually and Home Alone. I like modern Christmas decorations mainly though....so I'm still a mix...I think.

So very nostalgic. I prefer to live in the past. I do enjoy some modern day stuff too though.

I'm mostly old school and nostalgic, but I welcome modern where modern is good. Listening to Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald singing Christmas tunes … on my iPod. Decorating the Christmas tree with those little Italian lights, instead of the big clunky ones we had when I was a kid. Finding the right presents for everyone … on the Internet. Liking the 1996 The Preacher's Wife as much as the 1947 The Bishop's Wife. Clearing the snow off the walk and driveway with a snow blower instead of breaking my back shoveling.
