Christmas is just around the corner… December has passed so quickly, as well as 2014 ! I’m taking the rest of the week off, and I will be back next monday. But first, I would like to share with you some pieces of my Christmas and a few childhood memories…

When I was a child, we used to celebrate Christmas at my parents or at my grand-parents. My family met there a few days before Christmas Eve.
The 24th was super busy and the whole day was a rush in the kitchen : everyone was working to prepare delicious food and decorate the table. Almond paste treats, oysters, “foie gras”, snails (yes, I’m french), deer or pike, baked potatoes and the famous Yule log… We ate for hours before leaving the adults between them to watch Christmas cartoons. Then, it was already time to go to bed, but not without making sure that our shoes were arranged under the Christmas tree, and that the snack for Santa was ready !

The next morning, it was impossible for us to stay in bed after 7a.m, the children we were where to impatient to check if Santa Claus really did his job ! We made as much noise as we could to wake the adults up, and we all gathered in the hall of the house… it was finally time to open the dining room’s door to discover the tree and all the presents at its foot.
Needless to say that the following hours were devoted to unwrapping the gifts and discovering our new toys and games. I must also confess that chocolate was our only meal for the day…

I spent last Christmas under the sun, on the island of Tenerife, with Gleb and his family. This year, we are celebrating our first maltese Christmas. Due to planning issues, our family weren’t able to come to Malta as it was initially planned, but we are still receiving my brother-in-law and his girlfriend for a few weeks. I really look forward to the little and pretty Christmas ! And even if I’m going to miss my family, we will celebrate a “second Christmas” together in January.

I wish you all a great Christmas Eve. I will be back here next week with a nice surprise for you ! I won’t say more, but there might or might not be some great items to win…

Have a wonderful Christmas !
