    and in the third, are the white figurines wandering in a circle ghosts or angels? (lol - Duiven-TS?! lol at the couple on the bench, there they are!)
    and hey, they copied your Cable car arrangement! (lol)

    much to (re-)discover and definitely causing good mood and smiles

    Because there is so much to see filming at the right speed is not always easy, but you know: people learn by doing.
    Great to know that you too enjoy it!
    I made a Freeze frame of the 'flying angels'. They turn out to be milk cans from the milk factory, although the name "Eggnog" is somewhat misleading.
    On later visits I have seen more factories like these.... More will follow ...

    Thank you once again for sharing these.
    You are very welcome again Cuddz

    LOL! milk cans! That's... unexpected, lol. Thanks for the clarification! I think eggnogg can still be right, cos we don't know to which they're on their way.

    hm, that is a bit more than I expected...

    I recommend a simple sleeping solution, like this:


    and a return "back from the woods" soon. *g* Not that they keep you there!

    One of the largest amusement parks in the Netherlands is the Efteling. In addition to the diverse theme roller coasters there are many other fairytale-like attractions.
    For example, there is the Fairy Tale Forest, Long Neck (Langnek NL) who can indeed extend his neck and Dream Flight (Dream Flight NL) an experience in a world where Elves come to life. The Amusement Park was transformed into Winter Efteling during this period. I will return to Dream Flight later in the story of this Christmas show.
    And creating your own WinterEfteling can be done with a lot of stuff available on Christmas shows like this one. Here are some examples:

    Snow-white and Little Red Riding Hood


    The Emperor's new clothes and Sultan on Flying Carpet


    Six little goats without their Mom; the seventh one is hiding in the clock when Wolf is knocking on the door.


    The Mint Donkey and last but not least... Joris Dragon!
