My festive Sunday ~ From New Year to Christmas

in beautifulsunday •  3 months ago 

Happy Sunday, folks!

Christmas is the a very special holiday, the most family holiday of the year. I always celebrate it at home with my family. Before I got married we used to celebrate Christmas in my father's birth village, with my granny, my uncle and his family. We visited his big family, shared news and memories, eat the most delicious home meal, sang a lot of Christmas songs. We all were good singers... The best holidays in my life, and such a sweet memories.

Now I can celebrate it wherever I want, fly to Paris or to the warm sea. But all I really need is my big noisy family and those crazy days back.

Years passed by, my dad, and uncle, and both grannies passed away. But while my mother is alive, I come to my hometown to celebrate Christmas with her and my daughter (as she lives here too).

The preparation is always very exciting ceremony. Traditionally, there should be 12 dishes served to the dinner on Holy Night. And my granny told me they all should be cooked on that very day, Jan 6th. Besides, the atmosphere in the house should be very solemn and peaceful. No one cried on children, every one had his part of work done in collaboration.

It is funny, but on this year it is especially important for us, a kind of challenge. There are 4 of us and every one has health concerns. Mom left shoulder, me - a stress fracture of left hand, Nat cut her right arm and Nick has a terrible pain in lower back. We joke that a one fully operational person can be put of our healthy parts, lol. Well, we just have to be more careful and thoughtful to each other. It is most challenging for me coz I feel like a conductor of a broken orchestra. After all, it was so nice to make a break, eat out and see Christmas movie ❤

I totally agree! And I hope I will celebrate it with my family as long as we all can. Thank you so much, I do hope we will get all well very soon, and I am so sorry for the late reply. I was sure I wrote it but not. Pardon :)

Never mind, dear @zirochka, I knew you had more important things to do in the past few days, so that was no problem at all 🙂


I might be a bit !DERANGED but not only I have a !BEER for you today, but also a !COFFEEA which I have bought at the !MARLIANS !shop 😉

What a lovely shop! ))) They always have everything I need, lol.

I was busy indeed, and still concerned about health. We are flying to Italy in a week, my husband (and his bad back) and me (and my immobilized wrist). Actually, it is a good news, if to abandon the fact we fly the same aircraft that had a terrible crash in Iran few days ago. Anyway, all in God's hands. I feel like ... miss my travels and just need more good exciting experience )
Thank you so much for your kind words, dear Johann! I hope you are having a nice end of the day :)

If you can read Chinese, then this shop might be fine for you to get what you need ;) lol

As far as I have heard, this aircraft was "accidently" shot down. In that case you don't need to be scared, although if that is true it is even more sad than an accident.

I hope you will have a nice stay in Italy, that the weather is fine and your health issues won't hinder you to have the nice time I mentioned before.

Sometimes I think you are too sweet :D
!BEER

Oh no, don't think so, @zirochka, because I am not - I just try to be polite ... and maybe a bit !DERANGED because of all that virtual !BEER ;)

Ok, you convinced me 😉

Sound a bit sad about your health concern but i think it must still be a happy occasion together.

Exactly, particularly happy occasion!
