…and no brighter smile on a kid’s face when it’s home-made. This is what we got yesterday to celebrate a boy’s eight years. Don’t know how other cultures celebrate birthday but I really like the European way: it’s nice to see the little ones working hard to blow out the candles, eager to get their sweet share. And as long as the lights are still burning, there’s odd Christmas feelings always mixed in, even in summer. Yes, time goes by.
