We got off to a late start to go and watch the Christmas Canal Parade. We got to the Magere Brug a little before 8pm, and missed the first boats. We were in time to hear plenty of Christmas carols, and watch a boat with a full band go by. While the weather was certainly cold, there was quite a crowd, at least where we were. The parade snakes its way through the Prinsengracht up to the Amstel, and then heads back towards Centraal Station.
A man was walking around with a large bag filled with headbands with LED lights attached. We had seen these before at the bridge lighting ceremony earlier, but didn’t get any. Roxy ran up and grabbed a couple.
When we got home, we tried one on Churchill. At first, he tried to knock it off with his paw (which I did not get a picture of), but then he just gave up and stared at us in disbelief.
Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
