In the mood for Christmas


Nothing puts me in the Christmas mood more than decorating the Xmas tree, it's something I am happy to do every year and I think the tree reflects my personality a lot...the colors are matching, it's mostly red and golden tones, but there's barely something identical on it, there's a bit of everything and I keep adding stuff cause I can't resist buying something new every year.
On every branch of my tree there's something special and often something that has a meaning, a memory attached to it, cause I am like this, it's hard for me to let go (I hardly throw away things, I get emotionally attached even to objects !) but there's also this constant wish to create new memorable moments and to get passionate about something new !.
In this period things are being hectic at work and I haven't still completed my Christmas shopping at all, what about you ? I just wish a day would last 48 hours instead of 24, to be able to do everything !.
I am looking forward to relaxing and to spending some time at home with family, here's a quick list of what I can't wait to do:

1) Watch classic Christmas movies, especially the Disney (Mickey Mouse) version and the Muppet version of "A Christmas Carol" from Charles Dickens, together with the trilogy of movies about the "Princess Sissi" of Austria is something I really like very much !
2) Listen to Christmas music (i.e. Sinatra) as well as Mariah Carey's Christmas songs
3) Bake some cookies and some kanelbullars (or cinnamon buns), I love the smell of cinnamon around the house !
4) Dress myself comfy with a new PJs, with red/green colors
5) Of course, playing with my presents, hehehe !
6) Eating anything and postponing detox to new year ;))
7) Playing some Wii games, I wish I had more spare time to play with my beloved Mario games, I am a Nitendo fan ! With hubby we love to play together with DJ Hero, mixing our fave songs !
8) Reading some relaxing book (I have the new Stephen King book waiting for me, hehe ! Pure entertainment !)
9) Catching up with friends
10) Ok, this is not a tradition but it's gonna become one: reading your blogs, of course !!!

Niente mi mette più di umore natalizio che decorare l'albero di Natale, sono felice di farlo ogni anno e credo anche che il mio albero rifletta molto la mia personalità...i colori sono abbinati, è quasi tutto nei toni del rosso e del dorato, ma è difficile trovare due oggetti identici tra loro, c'è un po' di tutto e continuo ad aggiungere oggetti perché non resisto a non comprare qualcosa di nuovo ogni anno.
Appeso ad ogni ramo del mio albero posso trovare qualcosa di speciale, che abbia per me un significato o sia legato ad un ricordo, ed io sono così: è difficile per me lasciare andare il passato (raramente riesco a gettare via le cose, sono emotivamente legata persino agli oggetti !) ma c'è anche questa costante voglia di vivere nuovi momenti da ricordare e di appassionarmi a qualcosa di nuovo !.
In questo periodo al lavoro è stressante e in più non ho ancora completato il mio shopping natalizio, e voi ? Vorrei che una giornata durasse 48 ore anziché 24 per fare tutto !.
Non vedo l'ora di rilassarmi e di trascorrere del tempo con la mia famiglia e, in particolare, di fare le seguenti cose:

1) Guardare i classici film di Natale, specialmente le versioni Disney (Mickey Mouse) e Muppets del racconto "Canto di Natale" di Charles Dickens, che insieme alla trilogia dei film su "La Principessa Sissi" mi piacciono davvero troppo !
2) Ascoltare musica natalizia, sia quella più "classica" (esempio, Sinatra) che le canzoni natalizie di Mariah Carey
3) Cuocere dei biscotti o Kanelbullars (o rotoli alla cannella), adoro l'odore di cannella per casa !
4) Vestirmi in modo comodo, con un bel pigiama nuovo dai colori natalizi, rosso e verde
5) Ovviamente, giocare con i regali ricevuti, hehe ;)
6) Mangiare di tutto e rimandare il detox ad anno nuovo !
7) Giocare un po' con la Wii...vorrei avere più tempo per riprendere i miei adorati giochi di Mario, sono una super fan Nintendo da sempre ! Con mio marito poi adoriamo sfidarci a DJ Hero, mixando le nostre canzoni preferite !
8) Leggere un bel libro per distrarsi un po' (il nuovo di Stephen King mi sta aspettando, hehehe...intrattenimento allo stato puro !)
9) Risentire gli amici
10) Ok, questa non sarà una tradizione natalizia ma lo diventerà: leggere i vostri blog, ovviamente !!!

  2. in molti aspetti mi ricordi mia sorella maggiore, specialmente per quanto riguarda i film disney e il vestire comodo nei colori rosso e verde! albero stupendo. condivido con te il fatto di comprare ogni anno una nuova decorazione da renderlo così sempre diverso. che dire mi piace questo post...sarà l'aria di natale che emana! http://isnotmycupoftea.blogspot.com/

  15. Love your tree! I am the same way, a lot of my Christmas decorations have some special meaning or memory behind them. I feel it makes it that much more special when you decorate! I have made it my goal to turn my Christmas lights on and play Christmas music the moment I get home! :P Got to live it up while you can! :p
    Happy Holidays!

  58. Fare l'albero è sempre un momento speciale da condividere con amici o famiglia, un qualcosa da fare tutti insieme magari ridendo e scherzando... mi piace la tua usanza di appendere cose che hanno un significato per te - non l'ho mai fatto però la trovo una bellissima idea!!
    Aaaahhh i film della Disney sono un classico in questo periodo!! Anch'io adoro ascoltare la musica natalizia, mi mette troppo di buon umore. :)
