Yes, it’s the most wonderful time of the year and all the smiling faces and red noses are exchanging heartwarming season’s greetings.
If you are anything like me then in the days leading up to Christmas, you are feeling like the holiday can’t come soon enough. So while I am counting down the minutes, curl up by the fire, pour some hot cocoa, and listen to Christmas carols, I keep reading all my favorite books or spend as much time as possible with the people I love.
The meaning of Christmas for me is connected with family. If I was anywhere in the world, I had to absolutely be close to home by the 24th of December and make sure all my loved ones were there with me.
I believe that Christmas is my motivation for the rest of the year. It has everything I love wrapped up as a present: quality time with my family and pets, moments to be with friends, the weather I like, time to relax, concerts to enjoy, museums to visit… not to mention food and drinks!
We gather all up to enjoy Italian along with Greek traditions and we make sure to write down, with the old traditional system of a pen and a piece of paper, funny emotional wishing cards for each other. All those sterling moments gives me motivation for the next year coming up. It’s important to get in touch with what made one the person he is and at the same time receive and get the chance to release back all the love that is around.
Warm wishes for a Merry Christmas full of everything that makes you feel warm inside and genuinely happy! Enjoy every sparkle of joy, every sprinkle of laughter, every pinch of cheer!
