Happy New Year - X for Xenium

I couldn't come up with an x word for today so I looked through the list that Yankee-in-Belgrade linked to to see if anything fit these photos I took today. The best I could come up with is xenium, which means "a gift made to a guest or ambassador; any compulsory gift." x=h in the Cyrillic alphabet but I decided not to go there. :-) ABC Wednesdays

People were doing some last minute shopping here today as gifts are typically given on New Year's, not at Christmas. Check out this gentleman's bag.


Aaand music was echoing on the streets..

Here's a video put together by polypheme photo from the Guča brass band festival. It's a slideshow of pictures with music.

(Last time there was an X, I posted a photo of bread/hleb, hee, hee.)

The man with the bag is a classic.
The word verification is envit or env it. I do, I do!

I love the shopping bag! I wonder whether he really bought underwear for his Mrs.

Happy New Year!
