What Christmas means depends on what age you are. When I was a child, it was very important. My parents, my grandmother, me and my sister were all there on the Christmas Eve. Presents and the Santa Claus was part of it. Everything then was a mystery. But as the older I got, the less important it was. Our family decreased and the whole holiday became just like another day. Even though it’s not quite like that since I’ll be going abroad this year too.
I still think Christmas is time to relax. I like the whole spirit of it. But I think it’s more of a family with kids celebration. When I get old, I don’t think I’ll celebrate it. I’m just gonna enjoy the silence when the neighbours are away. At least I hope they will. Unless I move to the country where they’re miles away. I don’t think loneliness will be a problem. I always find something to do. Of course, I hope there will be someone to celebrate it with but if not, that’s alright too.
I’m not that into Christmas food. First of all, the only thing I ate when I was younger was ham, different fishes, rutabaga casserole and Finnish beetroot salad. The other thing is, I’m too lazy to do any of these foods. Doing all this alone is too much work. Store bought doesn’t taste that good. I’m picky about food and that goes with the Christmas dishes too. Unless it’s chocolate. Then it’s more than welcome. No matter what I age I become, that will never change.
