What do you love about Christmas?

Well, hello there. Grab a cup of tea or coffee, cause we're about to get close and personal, it might be a long post...ahaha. 

Let's start from the beginning, for those of you who don't know these things. I come from Bucharest, Romania and studied in Vienna, Austria, which means I don't get to spend as much quality time with my family as I would love to. I don't care if this is cheesy, I love spending time with my family. For those who are wondering I'm 24 years old. I've always been close to my family and even though I live in another country we talk a lot, but being able to stay so long and see them daily is one of the best things about Christmas. 

To be completely honest, another thing I love about Christmas is the food. If you haven't tried Romanian food, try looking into it, it's delicious and I'll be sure to share some foodie pictures after Christmas. It's also nice because I get to help my mother with cooking, which means I'm also learning so someday I'll make everything by myself. Not to mention I love helping her cook, because I always get to try things before everybody else, which is awesome when you're a foodie.

I would be lying if I didn't say I'm also excited for presents, everybody is. Don't listen to them if they say otherwise...ahaha. I don't really care if it's just chocolate or something else, I enjoy the surprise ...and the chocolate.. I'm kidding...well not really, someone needs to gift me chocolate.

Decorating is also really fun, especially when you do it with loved ones, though cleaning up afterwards isn't as much fun. I love making the Christmas tree and putting all the gifts under it. Christmas carols are also really nice, it just makes everything more festive, for me at least. 

What do you love most about Christmas?
Have a pink-tastic day!

  27. We may be from different countries but we have a lot in common when it comes to Christmas! I'm actually Filipino and my country is famous for celebrating the longest Christmas. In here in actually starts on September 1st and ends on January 12 :D I'm always looking forward to the food because there are Filipino foods that are ONLY served during this Holiday. Yes, you have to wait for a year just to eat these food and I'm always looking forward to it. Of course, I'm also looking forward to the presents I;ll receive and the decorations. Not so thrilled on taking them down though. I'm always lazy when it comes keeping them back to the storage :D
