I had hoped to post some pictures of Pittsburgh all decorated in preparation for Friday, but the weather has been so gross I haven't really had a chance to take any. So here instead are some pictures of other cities decorated for the season that I have visited in recent years:
the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris
Christmas Gnomes in Cologne, Germany
Breakfast at the Christmas Market in Cologne, Germany
Potato Pancakes, Curry Wurst, and Gluhwein - yum!
Fun with photography in Brussels, Belgium
Hopefully this rainy, yucky weather stops soon and then I can show you how well Pittsburgh does the holidays up!
