hit it well. Perhaps was the parade with a little bit Christmas. We had expected
that the vehicles for the Christmas had been adapted. But it was the usual
parade with only Father Christmas and the reindeer they were real. Well there
were the soldiers and one vehicle with toys. But these was yet smaller than
otherwise. The snow dolls were not there also this year.
