Now that Christmas is over, my conclusion is that I like the advent season more than Christmas itself. I could lie and tell you how relaxing and unwinding Christmas was but that is not the truth.
Usually at Christmas (and the days before) I am in the kitchen for most of the time. Even if I watch a movie while cooking and preparing, it doesn’t make the work more enjoyable. Especially this I year we had more guests over at our house and I felt more and more like a maid. Christmas dinner is always at our house and we never eat out on this day which is why Christmas equals kitchen in my mind.
But I really enjoy the advent season with the lights, candles, movies, Christmas market and general mood of the people. I accepted the fact that you can’t have everything in life and I wouldn’t change it. I mean that I don’t want to leave my mom alone in the kitchen and that I should do my best to help her. Isn’t that the real spirit of Christmas?
How was your Christmas? Was it more enjoyable?
