Merry Christmas Hanging Snowflake

I traveled a lot this year and from before Halloween though until the second week of December, I was out and about in Europe and Asia. This was a good news, bad news sort of thing. Good news for me, I saw and experienced a lot of cool things. Bad news, this obviously cut into…
