Every Tuesday, step by step, I’m walking with my readers from A to Z, last week we had the “W”-challenge, so this week we’ll take “X” – I’m sure you’ll also find a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “X”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “X”!!! Myself I’ll focus on the topic “Xmas tree”:

Xmas Tree

X = X-mas tree, glass sculpture
X? I’ve written often about X-mas. We had our most wonderful Christmas time in Venice some years ago. Our daughter married there her Italian architect. We stood on a balcony to watch the boats down on the canale grande. We strolled through the medieval city centrum. Never I will forget the rich Arabian ladies with bodyguards (equipped with automatic weapons), taking a jewelry for their own; and what made me smile? Watching my daughter, disappearing with her fresh husband in a nice hotel. On the great St. Marcus piazza a casino had installed a gift: a large Xmas tree – made of glass!

    That is an out-of-this-world Christmas tree! Very creative! It’s quite the opposite of the photos I put up today. I have “X is for Xeric.”

  7. What an interesting tree… and beautiful story. It’s strange sometimes that the best Xmas we had was in a foreign country, far from home. For us, it was in Vietnam …

  9. What a lovely story! And a glass Christmas tree. It sounds like a new-fangled Christian Andersen tale.

    • hi Debbie,
      thank you for the term XENO-MANIA, much more positive than the ugly xenophobia!
      don't worry, be happy
      I’m trapped in Xenomania too, I took this photo featuring 3 friends:
      the musician with hat (left) is Errol O. Johnson (Jamaica / UK)

      on the right side (blond sax player) – he is a refugee from Russia – he (Juri is his name) escaped from the war in Afghanistan, so he had to spent some years in prison for that failure in Moscow – and is now happy to be free in Germany…

      in the middle: a female designer from Turkey, selling pearls and diamonds …

    I missed XXX- not really what I’d like to post but an accurate portrayal of: http://wp.me/a2dwKf-19d

    The X- chromosome of Xenophilia on a parallel of X-axis instead of XXX. ; )

    http://wp.me/a2dwKf-19e- gotta love the Dutchman.

  26. Black women are very exotic and, they are a really various
    type of ladies. There are so numerous stereotypes related to black ladies and, you will find the women really interesting.

    Black girls have a dark skin and, they are understood for their nature of being aggressive.
    It is very intriguing exactly how black girls have the tendency to stimulate interest and argument.
    The girls can be discovered in all parts of the world
    and, the most popular black women are African Americans. African women are known to be
    simple and very calm. It commonly ends up being really difficult to inform the
    ladies apart physically since they have similar features.
    African American girls are kids of former slaves who were generated from Africa,
    lots of years earlier. They have an extremely long history of struggle and final triumph.
    The black community in America has needed to combat numerous battles just to be heard.

  27. That is a sweet tree! Been to Venice once, it is definitely a special place. A glass tree fits very well. Thanks for sharing and taking me back to a great city. 😀
