Who loves the Christmas spirit? who loves those lovely Christmas songs or those family movies like Home Alone, Elf or those action movies like Die Hard ? I love them! I love that season, specially because here in Australia is summer time too, so we get to enjoy a nice warm weather while we can have dinner outside with the family and enjoy watching the kids play.
But I must admit, I hate not being able to find a parking spot when I just want to go to the supermarket, or to the gym, it is just so hard with all those people trying to get last minutes presents, but I need to admit as well, that I have been there, I have gone to the shopping center a day before Christmas to get something that I have forgotten, or to add something else because I found it was not enough... and I always ask myself, why do we actually have to do this? why don’t we just enjoy the day/night with the family without having to give anything to eachother but our company? - But then I remember the kids, they look so happy when they open their presents, their eyes open wide and so full of hope that they will get what they asked for, and we hope that Santa did bring them their present, right?
I have been trying to be like those mums that as soon as it is 1st of January , they start saving again for Christmas time, I know I would spend all the fund after few months, I have no idea how they do it! Can anyone tell me the secret?
My daughter is growing up and she will soon understand why Santa is here and what he does! LOL so I think I need to start planning on what to do soon before I get caught out again a day before Christmas trying to get her something!
Oh well, but the most important thing is that we need to enjoy eachother as a family or friends, enjoy those Christmas movies together, that lovely warm weather and Christmas songs while you have dinner... let’s always be grateful of what and who we have, it doesn’t matter if we have 100 or 1 presents or if we have 50 or 2 family members, the most important thing is that we get to spend some quality time with our loved ones and that we can see our kids smile.
