Who are these people?

I was at the local airport picking up my daughter, when this group of about 50 revelers came parading through the terminal singing and dancing as the weary passengers tried to retrieve their luggage. I assume it was to celebrate the season, but they had no signs or other indication as who they were. One sees strange things in airport terminals! :-)

The guitarist has a touch of the Cheryl Cole about her. Were they actually playing? Violins can be gorgeous-or their sqeaks can wake the dead! I hope it was the former!

Good evening Don,
The group spread humor and good cheer. I like the movements including costumes in the background. I think that some passengers were pleasantly surprised.
Thank you for today's e-mail. I try to leave some comments because I have some time. In between is the link to some blogs, problematic. I'll try anyway. We made this evening a long walk in the snow with Ranger. He is now tired and sleeping. On our balcony, the snow is about 16 centimeters high. After a walk it was raining. It could be that the roads are smooth now. Thank you very much for all your nice comments. Have a nice time and all the best including your family and friends. Dear greetings Christel and Detlev
