„Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
This year we‘ve decorated our home with the pine branches. To keep the evergreen ‘Paradise Tree’ alive, we decided to decorate it with our birds created in the Kintai enamel workshop. Since the 13th century for many years the Lithuania Minor region was influenced by German culture and traditions. Decorating Christmas Tree spread here from Germany as well. Christmas wreaths were hung outside on the front door or from the ceiling. Here the Advent wreath was decorated with four red candles.

“Those who share - win”
