Christmas is supposedly a very expensive season although everything you find is on sale. I generally purchase Christmas decor right after Christmas because that is when I reach home after my vacation and before that, I hardly get anything Christmassy in the market! So over the couple of years that we have made our home, I have collected loads of tree decoration items and I think my tree can’t withstand any more of the load 😛 This year, since my daughter has also grown up, we thought we should move more towards the religious side of the celebration instead of keeping it all Santa & Christmas trees. We call Christmas the Advent Season, running through 4 Sundays and culminates with Christmas that falls on the 25th of December. The advent candles, 4 of them, held within an advent wreath, is lit one by one every Sunday to remember and represent hope, peace, joy and love respectively. The tradition was started long back in Germany as a countdown to Christmas but later on has added so much value and tradition that it is an inevitable part of the celebration.

Every year I have great plans for Christmas and something or the other comes up and we have an absolutely normal Christmas every single year. This year too I had so much plans but I have 3 shutdowns at my office before Christmas and I have my course exams at the end of the month 🙁 Its like the universe is conspiring against me and my Christmas crafting 😛 But here is a little merry making episode we had last week – we as in me and Grace 🙂 As somebody said, colors and paints are the best friends of kids – not sure if chocolates could be as well but still 😛 I might have bought more colors in form of paint boxes, cakes, crayons, pencil colors and what not for grace than chocolates! I love the fact that she loves coloring and in fact I sometimes get amazed by her creativity. The other day she had to paint a flower pot in her school book and she colored it with all colors line after line and she told me its her rainbow pot. She is a brilliant kid and I let her be when it comes to coloring.
