Sometimes, it's the little things in life that make you happy. And the end of the week, this week, is one of those things. Not only is it Friday, but it's the final day of classes this term. Hurrah! Now, if my head would simply clear up.
To mark the occasion, here's another image of Saint Nicholas, this time, French from 1900. Although this figure is, perhaps, much more familiar looking to many of us, he is still suitably old world and old-fashioned in appearance. The boughs of holly are a particularly nice touch too I think, but you don't want to tangle with the stuff, especially when it's dried out. It's like razor wire!
