for today's 12 days of Christmas, I have decided to focus on Christmas traditions. I know a lot of you have them and I always like to hear what other people have as their traditions.
In my family, we don't really do much for Christmas. Ever since I remember every year for Christmas someone had to work or we all had to work because we had a restaurant and Christmas is the busiest time of the year. This year my parents lost their restaurant and so for the first time ever we are all together for Christmas. No one has to work, we can all enjoy each others company, have a nice dinner without rushing through the eating or having to still us being hungry because we are working and there is no time for food, we can watch Christmas movies on Christmas. I love Christmas movies but always had to watch them around the Christmas time.
This year is going to be so different, last year I didn't get to spend Christmas with my family as I was in Shanghai. I have to say I felt pretty lonely. I would hear my friends talk about what they do for Christmas and be a little bit jealous because it seemed like they had so much fun. I never knew that, I do consider myself very lucky though and even though we don't really celebrate Christmas I still love the Christmas feeling.
I still can't believe we actually get to celebrate Christmas this year. And important note, I did see the Coca-Cola Santa advert on TV already! So Christmas is coming very soon.
Let me know what your favorite Christmas traditions are or what you like to do during Christmas?
