Day 348) Little drummer boy nail art

This week's challenge is "Christmas songs".

First a little story again:
My parents had their own store and worked like 6 and a half days a week.
The whole month of December was a crazy period; my birthday, Sinterklaas, Christmas, my parents their birthday, ice skating, fireworks, New Year, accounting etc.
But Christmas time (which is for the Netherlands on the 25th and 26th) was for the family.
Two days of no work, presents, playing family games, watching Christmas movies and going to church.
I guess this is why I'm still loving this time a year: family time, showing each other your love, feeling some kind of inner piece.

What was I going to tell?
Oh yeah, my mother sings in a church choir and at Christmas time they sing Christmas songs in church. Some only with the choir, some with all the people.
I enjoyed going to church with Christmas time. That huge Christmas tree in the centre, all the big candles, the beautiful windows, the harmony between the people and singing songs together.
I then fell totaly in love with "THE LITTLE DRUMMER BOY" (Carol of the drum).
Pa rum pum pum pum

When the choir sings, it looks a lot like this version above.
I love it so much! Also the story behind it and the lesson people can learn.

I wanted to honor this story and this song and the best memories it has given me by making a lovely nail art.
This has been quite a challenge and it took me about 3 hours to make it. I'm not good at painting human beings.
All that time I've been listening to this song and other Christmas songs ♥ (There is a 3 hour playlist of Christmas songs on YouTube!).

Hope you love this nail art as much as I do!
