    That makes me so jealous. The stores around here don't put out anything related to Christmas until late October or the beginning of November. It feels so far away

    Looking forward to spend som christmas-y time with you all.

    Any idea where you would like to study abroad? I still wish I would have taken the time to study abroad somewhere. I've never been out of the US, but hope to vacation overseas in the future with my family.

    I haven't seen too many Christmas decorations out yet, but there are a few stores with some things out. I'm just excited that Halloween decorations are finally coming out!

    Thank you! Yeah, I've been posting quite a lot since I joined. I'm just happy to find people who are as excited about Christmas as me

    As for your question, I've been thinking about the UK, preferably London. But there are so many nations I want to visit, I've only been to France and Malta. The US is very high on my list, but the UK is just a bit closer to home, and I would like that if I am going to away for a whole year

    Here in Denmark, Halloween isn't really a big deal, although it's been gaining popularity over the years. Nobody dresses up, but decorations are put up, both in stores and private homes. In Tivoli, Denmark's most famous amusement park, they decorate everything with "scary" things, like jack-o-lanterns, cobwebs and fake ghosts. They also put up small stands everywhere, so that it kind of becomes a small market, where you can buy all kinds of things. It's really wonderful!

    Any place in Europe sounds good to me...I want to visit a lot of countries in Europe, and hope to one of of these days.

    I'll have to look up Tivoli and see what it's all about. I think a friend and co-worker of mine went there this past summer when she went to visit her boyfriend. His company transferred him over to Copenhagen and the pictures she took while visiting over there were wonderful! :D
