Even though the temperatures haven’t dropped to extremely low, the constant wind does make it feel colder.
So I pulled my cosy wintercoat a bit tighter when walking down the shopping street.
To my surprise, I saw that they were busy putting up the big Christmas tree and iceskating ring in the city square.
Several decoration lights started appearing as well.
October hasn’t even ended, but already it feels quite “Christmassy”.
It used to make me mad how Santa has barely even left and the Easter Bunny was already making its way into our lives.
Plus, I was against the whole commercial perspective.
I mean, these days it feels like more people assosiate Christmas more with the big Coca Cola truck rather than the birth of Jesus.
Lately my mind has shifted a bit from this anger.
We are approaching the end of the year and I realized that yet AGAIN this year has turned out nothing like I had planned, worked and wished for.
Halloween is not a big thing in Europe, so honestly, there is nothing much special in the weeks leading up to Christmas.
Even if you happen to be a sourpuss like myself, walking down the dark roads seeing lights, people drinking hot cocoa and even that annoying song from Wham! will give you a smile on your face.
And isn’t there anything better than a person who smiles genuinly?
And so what if you feel like listening to any other Christmas song in the middle of a hot July day?
Not everything has to seasonal per se.
While we are shopping for winter clothes, the fashion companies are preparing for the Summer collection.
And speaking of this, I, myself, have started preparing for Christmas cards.
They of course will be a little less conventional than the typical ones you will find in a store 😉
Which of these do you like more? 🙂
What do you think about the early start of pre-fun for Christmas?
