Hi everyone, how are you in this lovely friday ?! Wait…wait a second. Isn’t it the 25th? YES. Something special happening on that day? Of course. How could I forget.
MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone! 🎅 Whether you celebrate it, or not, I hope you’ll have a wonderful day with your family and loved ones!
For this particular day, I decided do do something a little different, and talk about Christmas. Ashley @ Socially Awkward Bookworm nominated me a while ago, to do the 12 days of Christmas Blogging. Sadly, I haven’t been around too much to schedule those twelve blog posts and to have enough inspiration on my own to answer all of those fantastic questions. So, instead, inspired by this great book tag, I will talk about CHRISTMAS, yay!
SPREADING SOME CHRISTMAS LOVE 🎄
There are so many things I love about this season. It’s cold where I live, I have to wear big sweaters and jackets and scarves and beanies and sometimes it snows. I DON’T like that. BUT there’s something about Christmas, some kind of magic you can’t shake, on this particular day. I love the way the cities are decorated for Christmas – even if, well, they’re talking about saving energy, and lightning up the whole place… isn’t that kind of weird ? -. I love the lights, the magic taking place at that time. I’m lucky enough to live in a country, and in a city that decorates A LOT, for Christmas. My little county in France is famous and very touristic around that time. Everyone comes for Christmas markets, to buy ornaments, drink hot wine and stroll around the city. I’ll let you take a look for yourself at some pictures!
GLORIOUS FOOD TO FILL US UP 🍰
Okay, I’ll admit it, one of the things I love the most about Christmas is, THE FOOD. Because who doesn’t love eating?! I most certainly do. Christmas is a time to cook with the family, prepare a big dinner and do some special food that you don’t cook every day. Because I’m a French cliché, I LOVE foie gras, with apples or a little bit of fig jam. If you ever want to try it, just, DO IT. It’s SO good. Obviously, desserts are the best part. Yule logs are the BEST thing, or, buches, as we say in France. I love choosing which ones to get with my mom. And, since it’s Christmas, well there’s no such thing as eating too much. Christmas was MADE for that. Well, not really, but you get my point.
DEAR SANTA, THIS YEAR I’M WISHING FOR… 🎁
If we’re talking about Christmas, we should mention the gifts part. Buying gifts can be SUCH a struggle. Getting the right things, juggling with the money, DAMN, it’s SO hard. What I love the most about it, though, is the smile on their face when they open their gifts, and they are HAPPY. This is the best feeling in the world. If I’m being selfish a little bit, I can talk about how much I want to open my gifts, too, haha. And you already know what I want, what I’m wishing for, and the personal gifts I will give myself this year. BOOKS. Obviously.
