Christmas may seem weeks ago but we are only on day eleven of Twelvetide, so hopefully you will bear with me as I share my photographs of the wonderful Christmas trees we discovered in Faro on New Year’s Day.
The decorations are all made by the schoolchildren, of which the majority seemed to be aged under 6 years. All of the decorations are made out of recycled products such as bottles, paper, tins and plastic and incredibly most had survived the rain and strong winds between Christmas and New Year.
They were all wonderful and they kept us and our visitors amused for quite a while as you have to explore the streets of downtown Faro to find them all. Our favourite were the ones of Jesus, Mary and Joseph made out of cork in sardine cans.
my son contributed in one of these trees 🙂
Oh how wonderful – which one?
It was and really brightened up the day.
Thanks for popping by. 🙂
I don’t know if you are a bit dyslexic like me , but we do say BaiXa not Baxia
As I’m always asking people to please correct my English , I felt you might want to know 😉
Hiya Thanks for that. No just a typo when I was copying it and as my Portuguese is limited I didn’t spot it when proof reading. Now corrected 🙂
Well that was fun, and I bet the children enjoyed designing them too. Have to agree with you, the sardine tins and corks were inspirational, also liked the ellies, but then I am rather fond of ellies 🙂
Ah yes the elephants are rather clever too. For some reason I didn’t photograph the whole tree 😕
These are great! My favourite is the sardine can nativity too.
Thanks 🙂 and definitely the most original. We were there ages looking at them all!
Very ecological 🙂
Have a Very Happy 2016
And a Happy New Year to you!
