Come On! Let’s Boogey to the Elf Dance!

Hemos ido a Gouda para ver el encendido del árbol de Navidad. 🎄
Se hace en la plaza central del pueblo, enfrente del ayuntamiento. Esa noche se apagan todas las luces de la calle, quedando encendidas únicamente velas situadas en las ventanas de todas las casas de dicha plaza.
Fue muy guay porque había un coro góspel cantando unas canciones preciosas. Y la gente del pueblo (y nosotras) se unió, cantando muy efusivamente algunos villancicos. Y todo el mundo era feliz.
Y, de repente, estábamos-en-una-película. Dios mío, LA NAVIDAD. 💚
He encontrado el vídeo de 2014, por si tenéis curiosidad.

Después terminamos el día comiendo un stroopwafel recién hecho. 🙂

We’ve been in Gouda to see the lights of the Christmas tree being turned on. 🎄
The event is held at the central market square in front of the town hall. Street lights are turned off that night, and candles are placed in windows facing and around the square.
It was great because a gospel choir performed beautiful songs. And local people (and ourselves) enthusiastically joined in singing Christmas carols. And everyone was happy.
And suddenly we-were-in-a-movie. Oh My God, CHRISTMAS TIME. 💚
If you’re curious and you’d like to know more, I’ve found a video of the 2014 Candle Night.

We ended our magical journey by having a fresh stroopwafel. 🙂
