This Christmas and New Year’s will be so much more different to any year before. Feels somehow even weird that Christmas is happening after all these weird months in the middle of all this, but the same time so good and comforting. All I’m wishing for right now is that we could spend the Christmas at my parents, with my boyfriend & family.
There definitely won’t be a Christmas church this year – maybe virtually? No Christmas shopping physically in stores, feeling relieved tbh. No Christmas markets, which I’m super sad about. No pre-Christmas parties, probably not even having any small friend gatherings. But if we get to spend the Christmas Eve with my family, I’m happy. It’ll be the first Christmas with my boyfriend and it makes everything feel special.
Things that are making me happy right now: Christmas lights everywhere in Helsinki, watching Christmas movies at home & drinking mulled wine, decorating our home and lighting up candles, our Nespresso coffee advent calendar every morning, my favorite Christmas songs, little christmassy DIY-projects, scrolling Christmas stuff on Pinterest, wearing fluffy slippers all day… In one word coziness.
