Hello everybody!! Today I am in a blue mood, due to the weather. Since last night it kept pouring. So I was thinking that I should cheer myself a little by having a cup of coffee and writing a post about Christmas craziness, as there are 12 days left until Christmas Eve.
Since I know myself, I adored Christmas. If it would be for me, I would have Christmas every day. The vibe, the tree, carols, food, good times, everything gives me such a good mood. But what gets me in a bad mood is the time before Christmas. More specifically, usually from the beginning of the month until Christmas day. I don’t know about you, but in my family, these weeks we are like robots. Cleaning, shopping, cooking, last-minute stuff, and so on. I remember when I was a child, I was making fun of my parents and grandparents for going crazy around this time, but now I see it myself. And this year is even more special. Due to the pandemic, I can’t go and do proper Christmas shopping or visit my relatives as much I did before.
But believe it or not, the craziness in town is the same. How?? Everybody is bulk buying, angry as hell and with any vibes, excepting the Christmassy ones. It seems like this holiday became more a marketing strategy than an amazing holiday to celebrate with loved ones. We are losing the essence of it. And what makes me sad is that the children are losing that spirit. They stop believing in Santa from a very fragile age and lose all the magic of the holidays. I know that times change, but I feel that there are certain things we should try to keep.
Wishing you all a great day and keep being part of Yanny’s Journey. Something special is coming soon:)
