WORDLESS WEDNESDAY







For those who don't know : The Manneken Pis, symbol of Brussels,  is a little boy who pissed on the Spanish invaders and this statue was built in his honor. Now he is dressed as a soldier to piss on terrorists and for the Chinese New Year celebration he was dressed as a Chinese.

My Aunt put up a "Christian Tree" to scare away the Muslims. Anyhow the Christmas tree has nothing to do with Christianity.
I don't think any Muslims seen her tree.

Coffee is on
