Hallo meine Lieben, are you having a nice week? I really hope you don't have any Christmas stress. Did you get all your presents? Or are you still searching for some? I am linking up with these wonderful girls....
and this week's topic is very christmassy.
I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of Christmas since my Mom died. It is just always so depressing to not have her anymore because we always prepared the Christmas dinner together, put up the Christmas tree together, watched Dirty Dancing together...and so on.
So yeah, Christmas, not my favorite day.
But I don't want to ruin the topic.
So last year I had a pretty cool Christmas! My first American Christmas! It was a wonderful experience.
It was funny to do the presents on December 25 and not Christmas Eve like we do it in Germany. But I had a wonderful time with my American family! We ate a lot, played Wii, watched movies, talked a lot. It was a great relaxing day!
And here are some things that I associate with Christmas.
... lots of eating.
... watching movies. Especially Love Actually, The Holiday and Dirty Dancing.
Also, David introduced me to so many American Christmas movies. It was awesome. We made a very long list with movies that I need to know and we watched all of them. It was so much fun.
... being lazy. Sleeping, reading, TV and so on.
... being thankful for the wonderful people in your life.
... have a Christmas drink. I am still German.
One time when I was a kid my bunny Knuffi tried to eat the Christmas tree....the end of the story was that he knocked down the whole tree with all the decoration. Knuffi was fine though. The tree did not hit him!
