Do you love Christmas? Or Christmas season?
I used to LOVE it, then hate it, like really hate it… And now in the past few years I love it once again.
So, I was at both ends. 😉
Many people don’t like Christmas music we are bombarded from the end of November. (For the love of God, that’s not even in December!) Of course we don’t like it, it’s TOO MUCH. So, guess what? I don’t listen to radio. I just don’t. I have freedom of actions that helps me turn off the radio. I turn it on or go on Christmas playlist when I feel like it, most likely on Christmas Eve.
On certain places I can’t avoid it that’s for sure. But I tend to go shopping in smaller stores so I am not stuck there for an hour listening to “Jingle Bells” 20 times. XD
Other things are decorations. We are lucky, here in Zagreb, government does not light the street decorations until December 1st. And it’s lovely to see some lights and stars and stuff you don’t get to see all year while the weather is so cold it is promising snow. 🙂
The one thing that makes me love this part of year is the fact you can UNLEASH your inner creative self. 💡
And for a creative bundle of ideas like me, that’s awesome! 🙂 Pull out your colored papers, scissors, glue, all sorts of paint, candles, sprays…. Go nuts with it! You can make your own decorations, you can make presents for other people, you can just plain entertain yourself….For Do It Yourself or DIY this is an awesome part of year. 🙂
I already made some stuff (for Christmas and non-related) and since I am so behind in presenting it here, I will do a different post. With all the pictures, I promise 😀
From the moment I woke up today I am singing this Xmas song. Don’t know why, don’t know how… (Couldn’t hear it anywhere because it is beginning of December)
I took some photos very dear to me last Christmas (2012) and didn’t had blog at a time, so this weeks theme Let there be Light is perfect. 😉
p.s. I will be making similar DIY Christmas ornaments like the one on the first photo.
