Enjoying the mild winter weather in Siedlce, we take our December evening walks along the downtown streets. I managed to take many souvenir photos in Alexandria Park and in Pilsudski Street.

We saw an advertisement about launching the Christmas lights on the city Christmas Tree and decided to attend the ceremony.

On December 6, St. Nicholas Day, the Christmas Tree began to shine. It stands in Sikorski Square. Traditionally, the event was attended by the City Mayor (he is called the City President here), who, with the help of Santa Claus, treated the children and their parents with sweets.

Santa Claus was very friendly and attractive.

It was great to take a walk in Alexandria Park. We saw a huge Christmas box near the pavilion, as well as Princess Oginska installation in the central alley. These installations began to shine on St.Nickolas Day.

We managed to attend the Christmas Fair, a unique outdoor event, on December 17. It took place in Kilińskiego Street, whose section opposite Sikorski Square transformed into a festive promenade.
There were stalls full of colourful light illuminations, lush Christmas trees and stalls with Christmas specials, delightful crafts, Christmas decorations, traditional meats and many kinds of cheese, regional products and delicious baked goods.
There was also a young people's concert and attractions for children.
Santa was waiting for kids inside a tent and greeted them with presents.

After the fair, we went for a walk to Alexandria Park. It was almost empty. We watched the ducks' bath day.

The snow looks beautiful, but it must be really cold.

I wouldn't call that very cold - just five or ten degrees frost...
