Thursday doors…Red Basel door for Christmas

Happy Christmas Eve Day!

‘Tis the time of the season for red and this door just down the block from our hotel in Basel is perfect for the season and Norm’s “Thursday doors” challenge.  I contemplated going out to get a photo of a beautifully decorated door here in Naperville, but the weather outside is frightful: windy, rainy (running the gamut from drizzle to thunderstorm and back), and grey.  So instead, I offer you this cheerful memory from last year’s visit to Basel and hope that you are getting ready to celebrate the season with family and friends.

Don’t forget that if you live in the Northern Hemisphere, the days are getting longer and if you live in the Southern, you’re enjoying summer.  🙂  I love snow for Christmas, but it’s not to be this year. I shall revel anyway!  Later today, we’ll be going out for lunch, the Christmas Eve service is at 5 pm, then we’ll head back home for appetizers, drinks, and opening whatever small things might be in our stockings.  A drive to look at Christmas lights will probably be fitted in as well.  Ahhhhhhhh.

    That’s a very pretty door Janet. I think red is a great choice. Have a very Merry Christmas!

  3. So apt for Christmas. Red and an opening into a new world… 2016!

  4. Merry Christmas Janet! I’ve moved to Santa Barbara, so my “Streets of San Francisco” blog will probably be quiet except for maybe some pics when I visit (or the few left on my phone). I am on Instagram now though:

    • Julie, our older daughter is in Pasadena these days, so if you ever want to meet, let me know and I’ll put you in contact. I know she likes Santa Barbara. I hope this move works out well for you and maybe we can get together the next time I’m out visiting her! Merry Christmas to you, too!

  6. Lovely Christmas photo. Merry Christmas

  7. Love the Red Door! If Santa can’t get down the chimney then this door is for him! LOL! Merry Christmas! It went up to 70 degrees in New York! Very balmy and I’m Loving it! No snow for me to shovel and no ice for me to slip and fall. Perfect Christmas Holidays! Have a Happy Holiday Season!
