Today, I visited „Turn the Lights On“ on the Dam square. Each year, the huge luxury department store „De Bijenkorf“ opens the Christmas season with an event and by turning on their Christmas lights. A French group of artists perfomed the rescue of Artemis, the goddess of the hunt, wilderness and protector of women and young girls. She was so fascinated by the beauty of a flower that she got caught by someone and held captive until her lover could eventually free her. What was so special about this scence was that it was performed with huge balloons. I have to admit that it was a bit boring and I probably wouldn’t have understood the storyline hadn’t the host explained it first, but it was definitely a fascinating sight!

The lovers united (yes, he does slightly look like a sperm).
