Rüdesheim's getting funky with holiday decorations this time

Rüdesheim am Rhein really decks itself out for the holidays, which is no surprise given how large its Christmas market is compared to the size of the town. As C and I strolled along, we saw some interesting Christmas decorations.

They ranged from unusual and very clever, like this Christmas tree made from crates... straight up unusual, like this leg-Christmas tree thingie in Siegfried's Musikkabinet.

Some things were a bit over the top, like this house...

...and some decorations tried to get in through the top, like these guys, whom I called 007 Santas.

(Seriously, Europeans, why do you like to decorate with Santas who are trying to break in by scaling the walls? Many houses have chimneys and front doors so those are possible entry points. Or, do the chimney sweeps have a monopoly on the chimneys?)

Last but not least, some decorations seem grumpy, like this Santa...

"Dang it! The chimney sweep monopolized the chimneys again!"
...or this guy.

Either way, Moo and I, who are not grumpy, want to wish you a very merry Christmas.
