CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – FIRE TRUCKS

CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – FIRE TRUCKS

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fire Trucks, Fire Houses, Fire Hydrant

***

For the Fun Foto Challenge this week, we were to feature fire trucks, houses, and hydrants. To join in this fun challenge, and also see other entries, just click the link above. 🙂

Seems Santa likes to arrive in a fire truck! These were from several different towns and even another country we lived in. If you look close, or click photo to enlarge, you can see a helicopter behind the fire truck (photo on bottom left). This was taken at Camp Zama, Japan. The last photo was from a parade.

The ones in the middle are from here, while the fire men were testing the fire hydrants. 🙂

Burnt Punch (German)

img_4500 img_4502

The Burnt Punch photo was taken when we lived in Germany. Our neighbors invited us over for a Christmas meal and had this, also. I’d forgotten what it was called, so looked under ‘burning sugar cone’ and this is what it said about it. It’s a German tradition, called Feverzaugenbowle (burnt punch). It contains wine, fruits and spices. The solid sugar cone is soaked in rum, then set afire, and it melts/drips into the metal punch bowl. 🙂 Another traditional German drink we were introduced to was the Rumtopf. This is a crock jar, that fruits are added to, layered, with rum. We had a lovely meal, that included actual reindeer meat, and boiled chestnuts. They lit the candles on their  Christmas tree, and we listened to classical music. I imagine we also played some card games, too, as that is what we did quite frequently. 🙂
