It´s almost here again. One of my most favorite parts of the year. Christmas time.
To be clear, I hate the crowds in supermarkets, annoying advertisements about the cheapest sales out, the way how some people hunt for the best presents etc. I like the illuminations on the streets, the falling snowflakes (not so much recently, unfortunately, the stupid thaw... :/), the way how I can decorate my apartment, the scent of fresh baked Christmas cookies, old fairy tales on TV, which I like to watch even though I know them by heart, sitting at one table with my family and eating unusual dinner, laughing with them during unpacking the presents and the long talking with them, for which we cannot find time during the year, with the glasses of our home-made wine in our hands...
There are so many things which make Christmas special. But it seems that a lot of people already forgot about what these holidays really are... And that´s really sad.
The reality has been kinda tough for me in past few weeks and that´s also one of the reasons, why I´m looking forward to Christmas so much. I will have vacation for a week!! XD
So, I made some photos of my Christmas tree and Christmas cookies, which I baked alone for the first time. :) And I hope it will be edible. XD( Look at the photos.... :) )
