New Year’s Eve

Whether you like it or not, we face the same pressure each year: schedule plans with other people to do something unique and different, wear our best clothes and party like there’s no tomorrow.

‘Tis the season- Let the celebrations begin!

I feel like the time flew away this year and here we are in December. I remember when I was little, I would impatiently wait for December to arrive because for me as a child it was the most magical time of the year. We would set up the Christmas tree, put some gifts under it and decorate every corner of the house. I remember my mom cooking some delicious food and inviting everyone to the table. The house was full like never before and me and my cousins would laugh out loud until our jaws would hurt. I miss this kind of feeling because when you get older it’s like you naturally lose this ability to take joy in small things.

But here I am this year, far from my country, my family and suddenly I have this tremendous desire to celebrate Christmas like when I was little. Maybe it’s because I am in a new place and I miss my family and friends but however it feels good to feel a child again.

Here in Poland, the lights are on…the city looks beautiful with all those shimmering lights and the Christmas markets. Everyone looks like they’re reborn, they are more happier, more enthusiastic and ready for these holidays.

I didn’t have the chance yet to go to the Christmas market but when I go I will make sure to update you. This was just a short reflection of mine.

See you soon 🙂
