Are You Dreaming Of A Pink Christmas ?

No , neither am I .
But , according to the local garden center , various supermarkets and generous amounts of junk mail , that's what we're going to get , Bing Crosby notwithstanding .
Pink tinsel ,
      cup cakes ,
            poinsettias ,
                    paper napkins and
                            three foot high glittery squirrels .

 !!! Girl Power !!!
By which I don't mean feminism . ... no , I mean the Margaret Thatcher grip and iron control of the average seven year-old girl on her extended family.

Still , if your life is nor run by a small "princess " and you prefer a jokier Christmas tree , I've seen glittery tortoises in sailor hats , cows on skis and a bulldog in a feather boa ... oh sorry , he's pink .

Though you may , like this hairdresser in Groningen , have a more austere approach altogether .

I'm sorry, but that's all so wrong. Christmas is red and green.

Top marks to that hairdresser; their display is a work of art.

Oh I have a pink Princess!

In case I don't get by again, have a wonderful Christmas, Sonata, be it white, green or pink!
