It’s cold outside
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Temperatures are dropping (at least in the northern hemisphere), most city centres are illuminated opulently and Santa and his elves are busy preparing everything to be ready in time.
Cards are arriving
While I’m also still preparing, feeling like one of Santa’s little helpers, the first cards from our Xmas Card Exchange arrived in my post box. These early birds are giving me bad feelings of being late. Fortunately there’s still time to be in time. Today I ordered my cards and envelopes. Stamps are waiting to be attached. The pen is ready to be put to use.
All that’s left
Right now I’m waiting for my cards to return from the printer. This is the time to enjoy some Spekulatius and a cup of Glögg. And it’s also a time to remember the soon ending year, the people we’ve met and the places we went to.
Are you also almost done with preparations? Or are you yet to start? How do you spend your time before the feast? And most importantly: When are you reading your Christmas cards? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
Thanks for being awesome and hoping to read from you soon.
