Photographer's Note

Bruges, Rozenhoedkaai seen from Wollestraat. Taken 2 years ago, almost on the same days. 20 sec.s exposure, though, the exif says "0" :)

I wish you all a Merry Christmas, with all your dreams coming true.


As a melting pot of Eastern and Western cultures, Turkey makes also good use of Christian traditions, mixing New Year's Celebrations with gifts and even trees and Santas sometimes, a-la-western style. Of course, this only happens by taking the fun part of it and leaving the religious part outside. And this fun practice is not found everywhere in Turkey, but mainly in modern and wealthy parts of big cities, as season's shopping needs a good amount of money. The gifts are not opened on Christmas Day or Eve, but on the New Year's Eve.
