TBT: Christmas in Germany

Today’s #TBT photo is from Christmas Eve 1999, the first holiday I spent with Martin and his family in Erlangen, Germany. I have no idea what Martin’s doing with that pillow, but I do remember there was gl├╝hwein that evening, and gifts, and real candles in the Christmas tree. The next day, we drove to Paris for the New Year’s celebration into 2000, and then a few days after that, I returned to the United States for Air Force basic training, and you know the rest of the story.
