Snowmen and Christmas decorations in Tromsø

in #walkwithme2 years ago (edited)

Here is a collection of snowmen and yule decorations found while walking around at the southern part of the Tromsø island.

This one is quite near our house

This is very south of the island, captured on my walks towards Telegrafbukta and Sydspissen I found a couple of houses that was nicely decorated ... the nearest one seems to have put quite much effort into it.

Note that they even have a gnome and a lit candle at the backside of their mailboxes, to the far left of the photo. Ok, it's probably not a real candle ... I didn't investigate that part.

The day after, a candle has been added.

Here someone has an old Beetle car that has been lit up for the holiday season.

I was to write that the people in the first house had gone "all in" ... but, no, here are some folks that really has gone "all in". Honestly, I think they've gone a bit too far - this is just getting too tacky for my taste.

Same one, a bit later in the evening - and a moon.

A big plastic gnome ... didn't see it at first.

Is it a Minecraft snowman, or is it a Frankenstein snowman?

What is that Santa drinking :)? Hope he's done his jog well this year.
I agree with you that the house that went all in with the lights is really too much. I think you can't even sleep good inside with that many lights. If that's the owner's passion for Christmas...what can I say?
Have a nice New Year's Eve and a great 2019!

Looks like wine to me - though, one should expect him to drink "gløgg", the Norwegian variant of gluhwine, though more often than not served as an non-alcoholic drink those days. However, as a hot drink, Gløgg is rarely served from a bottle, most often from a pot.

I think you can't even sleep good inside with that many lights.

At least, they were not blinking, and not that powerful - a curtain will likely block it out

Excellent photos of snowmen and cars.
Santa Claus is probably tired of going home and giving out gifts to children. So I decided to rest and celebrate the New Year.
