In Germany we celebrate Christmas starting on Christmas Eve therefore on December 24. As a kid this means…this is a LOOOOONNNNGGGGGGG day…because you have to wait till it gets dark to finally start celebrating Christmas and also see what Santa brought for you.
As an adult as it gets dark pretty early it means the day is really SHOOoooooRT because the stores (read you have to stock up for 3 days in food etc) will be closed in the afternoon, and then also on the 25th and the 26th- because we celebrate 3 days . It means- while you read it – I am probably standing in line at the grocery store trying to get the last eggs, the last fresh milk and getting our fresh turkey at the butcher. (if you read it later..I am celebrating already with my loved ones 🙂 )
And you know what- I loooooooveeee it! It is so much fun preparing all this for a couple days of festivities. I most likely will meet some of the neighbors and people around, everyone is excited and happy and chatty while waiting in line…what is not to love about this? I love this time…! I will see you back on December 27!
I am wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season and those that celebrate Christmas a Very Merry Christmas!
Huge hugs and Love
