I didn't think I'd ever say this, but I want Christmas! I've never been a big fan of Christmas, since I think it's a bit overrated. The coercion to buy people gifts, receiving gifts without maybe deserving them and boring food hasn't interested me at all for quite some time now. One thing I really like with Christmas though, is making candy together with my family. Baking gingerbread, making toffee and weird marzipan figures makes me feel at ease somehow. And now that I look out my window all I can see is trees with the colours of autumn. The sky is gray and the wind is cold. Halloween is just nearby. But I want Christmas!
Though I'm afraid to say that the Christmas spirit will probably die before Christmas is even started. You can already see Christmas decorations everywhere and it's just sad. It makes it less special.
I like getting people gifts more than receiving. To give someone what they truly want and not just buy something "just because" you have to give them something. That's a very precious thing to me.
What about you? What do you think? Give or receive?
