Christmas Advent Day 14: Weihnachtspyramide

Christmas Advent Day 14: Weihnachtspyramide

If you know me... you know I love the wooden Christmas ornaments. And I especially love these things. They are Christmas pyramids and there are spots for candles on the base and when the candles are lit the rising air causes the windmill at the top to spin around. How cool is that? A total fire hazard, but cool!

The pyramids come in all shapes, sizes and colors and although you can find more of these in Germany than in Switzerland, these babies were found at the Zurich Hauptbahnhof Christmas market.



This is the one I have my eye on... the mack daddy of the Christmas pyramids... although they do have four tier ones available online... this three tier one is a beauty. But I might just have to wait until next year to be able to afford this baby - as it costs a whopping CHF 400!!!

You think I can go to them on the 24th and make them a bargain?!?!? I think I might try. I mean, who buys one of these things after Christmas, eh?
