Merry Christmas everyone!! We're enjoying days measured by the lengths of rainpour and clear sky allowing us to head for a stroll when we're brave enough to do so. The strangest thing is we're not in a hurry to jump ahead into the squalls of rain if table is obliged to entertain our taste buds, one story comes after another, rediscovering presents unwrapped hours ago keeps us fondly chained to our walls. They were well mixed this year with just the right amount of surprise, unpacked with increasing ease of little fingers. Piles of wrapping paper revealed colouring and pop up books whose every page has been repeatedly reread and coloured since they appeared under the Christmas tree that is no longer pointed at because of its sorry naked branches (it was taken down today because you'd think it could last for days until you realize it won't survive the next hour). There's always room in a girl's closet for her first nail polish and strawberry lip gloss, the kind of essentials Santa would bring with confidence. We try to remove the unwanted but the general mess around the place has been unreal.

This year we were so excited with the whole new idea about Christmas Eve. Instead of preparing a big meal and opening presents straight after we decided to play it as relaxed as weather allowed and went out for an evening walk downtown to see the decorations, ride on a carrousel and inspect the market and its handmade toys and not-at-all-necessary items. It was crowded, cold and simply awesome. Rediscovering my town time and time again continues to be amazing.
