Happy (Merry) Christmas (Holidays)

  Whichever way you want to put it. Happy Christmas to my British friends, Merry Christmas to my American ones. (Not to mention Season's Greetings to the British curmudgeons and Happy Holidays to the American ones.)
And greetings from Santa/Father Christmas's reindeer, Chet (left) and Angel outside the hobby shop in Buffalo.

Here's a close-up of Chet, who's 6 months old and a bit tired.

 Reindeer really do have amazing feet, designed for walking on and digging up the snow.

Speaking of which, here's what's left of Buffalo's Snowmageddon, (Scroll down to a month ago.)

The hobby shop also had a Christmas train

 And these festive fellas

Queuing to get on it.

And inside, a slightly smaller model train set chugging away to the screaming delight of visiting kids. At least some pleasures don't change.

I noticed there's a church and a mosque.

And I suppose these days there's got to be a windmill in there somewhere. Notice the helicopter too.

The Christmas train has a sweets car saying "Nice".

And behind the Christmas tree, a coal car saying "Naughty". (Devotees of St Nicholas will understand.)

Ha Ha

And the dodgy lawyers' office is still there.

So stay out of trouble.

And here's a Christmas crib, though this time I'm cheating and it's not in America but in the Hidden Gem church in Manchester (see below).

 Have a good one!
