This year my longing for Christmas is greater than ever. I’ve never been totally in love with any holiday, and even though Christmas is great I don’t ever want to become like my parents: clean the entire house like manics, cook to much (fattening) food, buy presents for all the people I know and then rush through all the fun in one single day!

I’m to much lay backed and slow going for the Christmas stress.

But last Christmas I spent in an island of sun (see picture above), so this year my longing for a real Christmas is great. I hung up the stars in the beginning of November and now I have the entire house decorated with glitter and candles. I’m planing to bake a lot, drink gl?gg and not produce even one little gnome (don’t like Christmas fabric or Christmas craft) but once again, enjoy the company of the people I love on Christmas eve. It’ll be great fun!

    What I love best about Christmas is:

  • the exaggeratedly long wait
  • the light in the children’s eyes, which glow in mine too
  • the greatness of giving and receiving

and now, (when first of advent have passed unnoticed) and only +three weeks to go, it’s the start of:

Happy December everyone!
