Lovely Sarah started a little christmas countdown on her blog which is so so nice :D
The first entry is about christmas memories and I will now share some of mine.
Christmas has always been special to me. My mom loved christmas, so when I grew up there were lots of decorations, calendars, christmasbaking and music. Thinking back I really remember christmas as the best time of the year. I have always preferred the days leading to christmas than the day itself, I enjoy the countdown and all the things around but overall I think christmas is too much about gifts.
The first years of my life I hated santa! I did not understand why he had to come. Even after I had come over my fear I just didn't care for him and used to snap the presents from his hand like a spoiled little brat without even a smile :'D
Food was always a big part of christmasday! Something I really was looking forward to and it was always lots and lots of leftovers to eat for days, haha!
After a few years our family skipped the Santa visits and my sister and I gave out the gifts. It was so much fun because the night before we had sat down and made rhymes to most of them :D
When I moved away from home at 18 I started celebrating christmas with Mattias family. :)
This year is very special because his sister got a little babyboy 2 days ago, so this christmas will be very very different but also exciting!
