To be honest, I never really celebrated Christmas before I came to Ireland. In Russia we have Christmas on the 7th of January, and it’s more of a religious holiday. Though we do celebrate the New Year eve, we have a lot of traditions on how to do it, and I enjoy this holiday more than any other.
When I moved to Ireland I left all the Christmas decorations I had in Russia, so I had to start a new collection over again. So for the 3 years now I’ve been collecting different decorations from other countries I visit during my vacations. I have decorations from Berlin, Munich, Vienna, Salzburg, Prague, Amsterdam, Denmark, Russia. Our tree is getting bigger and bigger each year, and I can’t wait to bring more decorations from this vacation as well. This makes me so happy to unwrap them each year and to recall the vacation I brought it from. This is a Christmas spirit for me )
Hope you are having a great holiday as well! I wish you the best of luck and joy, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
