When I was a kid, Christmas was the biggest highlight of the year.
Last days before Christmas most of the teachers would allow us to watch Christmas movies and write wishes for our classmates instead of solving equations and writing essays.
Christmas songs were playing during the breaks. On the last of school before vacation we’d exchange the secret Santa gifts. Everybody hated that, ’cause you always get to buy a present to a classmate that you don’t really like.
And there would be snow. So. Much. Snow.
However, the best thing about the festive season was Christmas Eve and Christmas day with family. On a Christmas Eve I and my family would have dinner and exchange gifts and the next day, we’d visit my extensive family and I’d stuff myself with delicious meals and sweets.
I’m forever grateful that as a child I could experience all the Christmas privileges – presents, loving family, delicious food and warm home.
I’m not visiting home this Christmas because of the pandemic. But I’m not sad. I’ll be spending Christmas with my own small family – my partner and my hamster Chandler (picture below), that doesn’t care about Christmas.
I’m hoping to cook my favorite Christmas food (more about it in the upcoming blogmas posts), see Christmas lights in the city and take some nice Christmasy pictures, binge watch movies and have a very Merry Christmas. Fingers crossed that we are all healthy and safe during all that.
I’m wishing the same to you! Stay safe. ♥️
And for all of those that won’t be able to see their loved ones this Christmas, I hope you have even Merrier Christmas and have extra special holidays filled with self-care and love. ♥️
How are you planning to celebrate Christmas? Will you be able to spend holidays with your loved ones?
