Christmas in Finland – Hyvää Joulua!
There is no time I love more than Christmas and it’s our first in Finland!
There are so many things that make me love it and probably I can’t even explain them all! Some are just in my imagination and others are in this parallel life – that as a good Pisces – I sometimes live! I feel it is time for gratitude, compassion, love and to be together. Things I wished the world would always have and even if you are religious or not, I think is the end of a period that from now on, we’ll put our hope in what is yet to come!
I am thankful every single day, for everything and even for the bad things too, because with them we get stronger and learn to do things better. So when the holidays comes, I just feel thrilled and think that is time to see everything that has passed and give to God, to the universe or to whatever you believe all the light and energy that has been put into our lives!
After all, we are only human beings that will someday go away and won’t take anything from here, except what we cultivate in our heart!
This year we will be far from our families and in a country where it’s just the two of us! So having dear friends here was a lovely surprise! What a joy to be able to share all my Christmas passion with more people I love!
I’ve already spent several Christmases away from home when living abroad, some with people I didn’t know and others with the family of friends I made! This time we are far from our families, but I’m not ‘alone’ and away from home! Home will always be where we are together, so thank you life for having each other and with us, special people around! I’m sure tomorrow will be a holy night in Santa’s home!
Merry Christmas from my family to yours! May it be an incredible and enlightened night!
