Olympic Excitement Grows
The time for the Opening Ceremony of the 2010 Winter Olympics is coming closer - less than two weeks away now. In preparation for it, I have purchased some Olympic pins. This is one of them. Of the ten I have purchased, I am willing to trade seven of them with folks from other countries. I've heard this tradition of trading pins has been happening since the early 1900's. Depending on how it goes, I may purchase a few more. We'll see. Another one I am keeping is of the opening day, with the date 2-12-10, the torch, the BC Place (the dome in which the ceremony will take place), and the two mascots. The pins are really beautiful.
