time runs by so fast and I can’t believe that there are only a very few days left until Christmas and holidays. I don’t really feel ready because there is still a lot of work left for one of the most beautiful days in the year. But I am already full of joy and happiness and I can’t wait for all the beautiful days together with my family.
For me, Christmas means to eat a lot and to have a relaxed and wonderful time with my loves. This year, my husband promised me to take the part of the cook and to prepare my favorite Christmas dinner. For Christmas, I love to eat roast duck with a very tasty sauce and some delicious dumplings as the main course. Since weeks I can’t think about anything else but the Christmas dinner. I already smell the scent of all the treats. We have ordered a big duck at the organic butcher in our neighborhood. For us, the good quality of food is always very important and therefore we buy our food organic or from locals.
Christmas is always a very controversial topic concerning buying gifts. Some people like to buy very expensive presents for Christmas while other people appeal to the original meaning of Christmas and only buy small presents. I handle it like that, that my husband and I buy small presents for Christmas and in January and February we visit some cities for shopping trips. The advantage of this tradition is, that we have two times joy. The one time is at Christmas, when family and being together takes the most important part and the other time are the weeks in the beginning of the new year when we like to enjoy to buy new beautiful things we need or we want to have during city trips.
When I was studying one of my jobs I had in my leisure time was to work at my favorite beauty shop. Among others I worked there the weeks around Christmas and from this time a new tradition emerged. My favorite Christmas presents were those from the beauty shop. A beautiful scent is a very classic Christmas gift but still one of my favorites.
