What does that mean for you? Are you glad it's so soon? Are you sad it's so far? Are you panicking?
For us, as a family, Christmas is an important day. We are trying hard to keep it as non-commercial as possible, with a young child in the house is sometimes hard. But our son know what the day is for and that's more important to spend time together as a family than un-wrap expensive gifts.
I'll talk more about our Christmas traditions in the days to come, but I will love to hear about yours in the meantime. Do you celebrate Christmas or other Winter holiday? What are the traditions you observe and what are your precious memories about your Holiday?
And maybe - what are the challenges you face during the holidays? If the Winter Fairy just personalized right now and granted you a wish (related to the holidays) - what would you wish for?
Me? I wish for a magic planner, one that I would dictate my schedule for those 2 weeks (a few days prior and all the way after New Year's) and the planner would tell me when and what I need to do every day! Maybe even plan my menu - neah, scratch that, we keep it quite the same every year :)
And if I can have my 2nd wish - I would wish for genial ideas for heartfelt gifts for the gentlemen in my circle of family and friends. It doesn't have to be expensive (they are adult males who have pretty much every imaginable thing already), it has to be ingenious and useful and thoughtful.
