This "Pyramide" was something I asked my DH to buy for me when he was in Germany earlier this year. I bought one for my parents many years ago when I was an exchange student there, and I've always wanted one for myself. It's a traditional wooden Christmas decoration. The heat from the candles makes the fan -- and thus the little people -- rotate. Doesn't it look Christmassy with our simple dinner of salad, guacamole and ciabatta (Italian bread)?
