The specter of Christmas

“There are moments so beautiful, so significant, that enclosing them in a movie or a song would be nothing short of simplistic, no doubt disrespectful (…)”

Sometimes you find unexpected objects in abandoned places. It was the month of July when I visited this small country cottage in Belgium. I was very impressed by the presence of a Christmas tree in the living room all decorated and dusty.

What are Christmas parties without flipping through old family armchair photos in front of the Christmas tree and a cup of hot tea? They are memories of a lost family who left their home in the heart of the Christmas holidays.

What happened to these people? Ghosts. Locked in a hospice? Or death? No one knows.

Here it remains a not too tidy house, festively decorated, with a large piano and little more. The specter of a Christmas that was.
