Burning desire / 216

Time flies & Christmas is fast approaching, whether I like or not. AND it’s not that I don’t like Christmas, it’s actually my favorite holiday, no doubt.¬†I now live in a climate with summer & sunshine when it’s Christmas. Something I have great trouble to get used to. For my part, it should be freezing cold, with meter-high snow drifts along the roads, frost, ice & unwillingness to get out¬†from the warmth indoors. Then, & only then, can the Christmas be celebrated.¬†I know it can possibly sound strange or even silly to¬†feel that way, but many years of traditions make their mark.

Today we went to town to buy some little things, stroll around & just relax in the city rush & to enjoy ¬†the beautiful sunny weather. Christmas had arrived – all stores & malls were decorated to the top, as well as restaurants & cafes.¬†It’s strange to see all these decorations, all food & hear Christmas songs to then step out to lightly¬†summer¬†dressed people¬†in the heat. It makes the Christmas spirit a little paler, so to speak. Some might say that you are getting the best of both worlds … which of course in a sense is true, by all means. But still …

Let’s get in the mood with some candle light, the ideal attribute for a perfect Christmas.
