Only 6 more days until Christmas Eve. I am glad I opened the Christmas season early this year. Because I enjoy every single day and I guess I will be a bit sentimental once the season is over.
Though I already caught myself pinching a bit from the herring salad which is traditionally a dish AFTER Christmas. I will stop praising this season since some of your are not in the mood or don't find the time to get into the mood.
This is inside the largest pawn shop in Vienna. Can this be called a shop? I'd rather say it's a pawn palais since the shop it actually is located inside a palais, founded in 1707. The palais as seen has been opened in 1901:

I hope you are all well and leave the sore throats and cold to others this year!
