Merry Christmas!

Yep – it’s Christmas. This year I pulled out a photo from the archives, a photo from an unknown photographer who captured a typical German Christmas in 1910, almost a century ago. What I find especially interesting is that Christmas has not that much changed since then. Sure, presents got bigger and more expensive since then, but the overall idea – to celebrate a memorable event for a big portion of mankind and to be thankful for the year that has passed – has not changed much.

We wish you a Merry Christmas 2009. May it be as peaceful for you as it is for us!
