Today we finished some Christmas E-cards we’re going to send out to our family and friends! It’s animated and plays music as well, but it still doesn’t have the feeling of a real, handwritten Christmas card, but then again, it’d be summer before that arrived, so we’ll have to stick to the E-cards. Sadly, we can’t send everybody in the family an E-card as everyone doesn’t have a computer!
I also kind of miss the snow, how Christmas used to be white. The fireplace would be lit and the smell of a pine tree would waft throughout the rooms of the house, intermingling with the sweet scent of hot chocolate and gingerbread cookies. Christmas music would be playing softly within the house, which would be vaguely illuminated by warmly-tinted lights and yellow flames burning down the wicks of candles with hot wax dripping down their sides. While we still have the decor and the music, the snow is really an important addition to the entire feel of Christmas, especially coming from Finland which is rather far up north. How do you celebrate your winter holiday?
