home for the holidays

kotona

kotona2

I’m in my old home now, as always we are spending Christmas here with my family. I love all the Christmas traditions we have, like buying a Christmas tree with my dad. We did that yesterday, soon I’m starting to decorate it. Then later decorating cookies, all kind of decorating is my job! And a little bit of cleaning..

Tulin eilen kotikotiini, vietetään joulua perheen kanssa täällä kuten joka vuosi. Tykkään niin kaikista jouluperinteistä mitä meillä on, kuten kuusen ostaminen isän kanssa, joka tehtiin eilen. Kohta koristelen sen. Sen jälkeen vielä pipareiden koristelu, kaikenlainen koristelu on siis mun hommaa! (Ja ehkä vähän siivoaminenkin..)

movies

When I’m done with the cleaning and decorating it’s time for movies and relaxing. Every year I watch some classics, like Love Actually, The Holiday and Home Alone. It don’t matter if I remember them from word to word, I still always want to see them!

Kun kaikki valmista, niin tiedossa olisi joululeffoja ja rentoutumista. Katson joka vuosi aina ne tietyt klassikot, ei niihin vaan kyllästy!

nesssu

It’s the perfect winter weather, the snow is so fluffy and white!

Täydellinen talvisää tuli kyllä täksi jouluksi! 🙂

How are you spending your day before the Christmas eve? Any similar traditions, for getting in the Christmas mood?

Minkälaisia puuhia teidän aatonaattoon kuuluu?

      As you do – I’m always decorating a christmas tree (that I picked a day before that). I did my cleaning and I’m also planing (I mean, my mum asked me to) to help with some christmas meals 🙂
      greetings from Poland,
      have a merry christmas.

    The day before Christmas is really relaxed. I’m decorating the Christmas tree with my brother, my mom is cooking for Christmas Eve and after that we spend some time together, watching the classic Christmas movies. 🙂 since my mom got cancer a few years ago, Christmas is more important to us than ever, as we don’t see each other much during the year. 🙂

    Are you going to church on Christmas Eve?

    I wish you wonderful Christmas, enjoy the time with your family. And of course a happy year. May be 2013 another good year for you.

    All the best. xo Anna <3

    We decorated the tree yesterday in the evening and today I´ll just probably chill and watch Home alone because that´s classic! And in the afternoon I´m meeting my boyfriend to exchange our presents so I´m really excited for that!

    Ahh, you´re so lucky with the snow..it snowed here in the Czech republic yesterday, but it melted right away and today it´s raining..well, whatever..

    My Christmas tradition seems to be getting sick, this is the second year in a row >.< I have to make food today, bake cookies and wrap presents, so I hope I will be a bit better soon.

I know that in the past you used to have Nicon D60 camera (I’ve got it right now) and your pictures were great too. Thanks for the anwser :*:*

    Marianna i love your blog so much! I think i’ve been following it for around 3 years and it just keeps getting better! I’ve noticed we share the exact same favourite christmas films! I love home alone 1 & 2, love actually and the holiday! It would be so amazing to get a reply from you because you seem so lovely and maybe one day i’ll get the chance to meet you! Have a lovely year and good luck for the future. Maybe check out my twitter? @franalicia x
