Huub collects special Christmas decorations. The antique glass Christmas balls are mostly found in the US, where Huub regularly goes on “Christmas hunting”. Many figures are already around a hundred years old and very rare. There is everything from crocodiles to seahorses, angels to zeppelins. The bird tree is completely full of birds and can also turn and even makes music. The Christmas tree branches are made from painted feathers, wrapped around an iron wire. Huub does not know exactly how many Christmas balls he has, but he needs a lot of time to decorate everything. It often remains until March or April. It started with a small snowman, which he got as a present when he was a child. Huub organizes every year ‘Christmas Past’ a market in Breda for (real!) Old and antique Christmas decorations, unique in Europe. There are people who love to see these collections and collectors from Germany, Belgium and even America.
