Last year at Christmas I was able to have the best Christmas present ever, seeing my family! This year, I get to have the same wonderful present, which I have been looking forward to anxiously since I left for Madrid again! The only thing about last Christmas, is it didn´t feel like a proper Christmas, it felt like an awesome vacation.
So this Christmas I wanted to make it feel a bit more like the Holidays by doing a few things to get in the Holiday spirit!
Listening to Christmas music
German pickle I bought in Munich!
The tradition is, one of your parents hides the pickle somewhere on the tree,
The first child to find it gets a little extra present from Santa!
(We never did this in my house, but it was the one ornament
specially saved for my Dad to put on the tree!)
The apartment came with a little tree and lights!!
Christmas cookies! They came out pretty tasty,
but nothing like making them at home
or the ones my Nana used to make...
