Lighting the tree!

Gouda tree lighting

Last night a few of us trekked over to Gouda to witness the lighting of the big tree in the market square. While that was nice, even better I thought was the lighting of the candles in each window of the ancient Stadhuis (town hall, dating back to 1540) in the center of the market, along with most of the windows all around the square. The photo above gives a good sense of it. Also fun to hear “Jingle Bells” and “Winter Wonderland” with a bit of Dutch accent.
