Festive Xmas ads and shop window decorations have already been with us for a while, and yet despite being surrounded by tradition many people can’t bare the idea of spending the upcoming Xmas holidays in the way “tradition” dictates.
Maybe it’s because I have always idealized Xmas in my mind. Maybe, because I decided even as a kid that I would make this week of the year special for me. But I don’t struggle with a must mindset this time of year like I know a lot of others do. Don’t misunderstand me! My decision didn’t mean that my childhood Christmases were the most idyllic in the entire world. But they were fulfilling for me. It is my core belief that we ourselves have the power to color our life moments the way we desire. So, “special” doesn’t mean having overdoses of glamour and extravaganza.
It means consciously deciding to provide an ingredient that gives those moments authenticity, a sense of humanity, of sincerity and of free expression of one’s creativity within the frame of whole-hearted warmth.
