What Christmas is all about

Even though I’m not a Christian I do celebrate Christmas. In my believe a lot of people around the world celebrate Christmas for the same reason I do. When I was little my mother once told me that everyone can celebrate and that you have to respect everyone’s thoughts and beliefs.

“Christmas presents is one of the favorite things to buy.”

For me Christmas starts somewhere in the beginning of December with planning of the dessert. As you could have read in one of my previous blogs it’s a thing. What to make and what not to make. Every year I want to make something special, something I never made before. So I read cooking books, watch cooking shows and talk to other people about desserts. A lot of desserts cross my mind but to find the right one is a thing. Then the tryout to perfect the dish, what should I add or not use the second time.

A Christmas tree is something I must have. Buying the tree is somehow a ritual. Going to the shop to find the perfect tree. But what is a perfect tree? For me a perfect tree is a tree that would fit into my house and is not to big and not to small. The livingroom of my house spacious so it easily could fit a big tree. After bringing the tree home its time to decorate. Sometimes there is a theme and sometimes there is a color. This year I have decided to do a mix of a color and a theme, Royal Bleu!! Now you must be thinking: What is Royal Bleu? Think of it as in a royal family, kings and queens, princes and princesses. Richly decorated with a lot of dark bleu Christmas decorations.

Christmas presents is one of the favorite things to buy. Buying presents for the ones close to you. Trying to find that thing wich shows your love for those closest to you. Sometimes I find it hard to find something. Most people around me have all they want, so if you ask someone what they don’t have they end up saying that they already have all they want and don’t know what to ask. To be honest I have the same problem. Of course there is always something you want but you do not want to ask for something really expensive.
Traveling the world is my passion so I have the luxury to buy my gifts all over the world, and I must say that it’s the best thing to do. Do you want to know where the best places are to shop? read this blog.

After waiting for almost the whole month its time for Christmas day. The day always starts with the most important meal of the day: Breakfast, actually most of the times it’s a brunch. Because all the traveling I do most of the times I have a jet lag, to get over the jet lag I love to sleep. Right after the breakfast/ brunch its time to prepare the dessert, because most of the times it takes a lot of time.
At the end of the day when all the guests arrive its time for presents. It is always nice to see how surprised your loved ones are when they open their presents.

For me Christmas is not about eating, decorating my house or buying gifts. Ok maybe a little bit. The most important thing is to be with the people you love, be thankful for the life you have and take care of those who can’t, cherish the people around you. In my believe that is the way to become a happy person and the way to be loved in this world.

Merry Christmas
