I do not really know what to say about Christmas. I haven’t made up my mind if I like it or not. I spent so many years overestimating it, and so what? I remember like yesterday when I was 12 and we had a huge Christmas tree in the house, and I used to switch off all the lights in the house and watch only the lights that we had on the tree. And I used to cry. A lot. I don’t know why. But Christmas is very depressing in my opinion. Why do people idolize it so much? Like, can’t you give money and presents to the poor people any time of the year? Why do you remember them only in the Christmas time? Can’t you go to the church and ask forgiveness any time of the year? Can’t you send a card to someone you love any time? Why does it have to be Christmas to do all these things? I do not doubt that it is really beautiful with all the decorations, the lights, the presents, the snow, the whole “Christmas spirit”, but beyond all these things, have you ever thought how many people have nothing of all the above? No access to anything like this? Or how many people spend all this “so beautiful holiday” alone? How many people would really want to have all of this so called “spirit, love, fun” but have nothing?
Thinking all of these things, I cannot really say that I like it. I only like the lights and the angels. Angels have always been my favourite, but it still does not have to do with Christmas. I love angels any time of the year.
My mommy wanted to make our little house really cozy for this special time of the year, and since we already had so many dacoration things, she filled the whole house with Christmas lights. Along with that, I put an extra little touch under the tree, which is of course Mando Diao music. I used to think of this beautiful music, and how it would be combined with living actually in the city where it was made. So I have been listening to their whole “Give me fire” album while we were having all these decorations going on, and specially their song “Crystal”.
