Today I'm being lazy (I've watched Pride and Prejudice like hundredth time) and keeping a low-profile before tomorrow's madness of shopping and cleaning. In Poland tomorrow's Christmas Eve is a day which is enormously celebrated - even more than the actual Christmas Day. It's this evening of the year where the whole family gets together, sings Christmas carols and according to the tradition eats 12 different dishes. After the dinner all the kids are looking out of the window and wait for the first star to come up - this means that Santa comes with the gifts! And because miracles happen (and I don't mean talking animals on Christmas Eve) - the presents appear under the Christmas Tree! When I was little my dad dressed up as Santa and when he rang a bell I was screaming, shrieking and hiding under the table! Oh, how happy I was.
This year will be nothing like that. I truly hope that's the last time I'm not celebrating Christmas properly and away from family. There will be Boyfriend and me. That's it. I am sad, but I try not to think about it. We will just add something extra special from us - to cultivate old and make new traditions for the future. And I thank God for Skype!
To all of you my Blogging Friends - I wish you a Merry Christmas
and a very Happy New Year!
