It’s December and we are getting closer and closer to Christmas. Every Shop I see have decorated for Christmas and now the stress begins. Christmas gifts, the food, the cleaning of the house and to make this Christmas like everyone else. And that everything has to be perfect.
I saw this ad from Clas Ohlsson on YouTube and it felt so appropriate that I decided that I needed to share it here whit you. (I am not paid to share this).
Why do we have to stress? Christmas comes each year either way. And why do you need to have a perfect Christmas? I know that some Christmases in the past that I have stressed. Everything had to be perfect, especially the first Christmases together with my husband. But he doesn’t care.
I love Christmas, but now I sit down and think about what I find important with Christmas and not what everyone else does. For me, Christmas is about spending time with the people you love and I have promised myself not to stress this year. At least not with Christmas. I think I will have my hands full with packing for my time studying abroad. And I really don’t need to stress over Christmas as well.
And I hope that you all don’t stress and take care of yourself. What’s the most important thing for you about Christmas? Is it the tree? Is it presents? The company? Just sit own an think about it. Maybe list the important things and take away the not important things. Maybe cut down on the food that is served. Just do what’s right for you.
Today is the Second Advent and when my husband gets home we are going to light the second candle. And probably watch a Christmas movie. And that will be the perfect ending of this week.
Today’s Christmas song is Underneath the Tree. I love this song because I think it sums up my feelings that I care more about being with my husband then the presents under the tree. Christmas isn’t Christmas to me without him.
I think Kelly Clarkson Has an amazing singing voice and I like her music. And this song is perfect for my Christmas playlist.
One of my all-time favourite Christmas Movies is Elf. I watch it at least once every December. And I have already watched it once this year. My husband does not understand why I need to watch this movie every year, and sometimes more than once. So I usually watch it when he isn’t at home. So I can watch it in peace.
The movie is about Buddy (Will Ferrell), a human who has been raised on the North pole by an elf. In the movie, he finds out that his not an Elf and he leaves the North Pole to try and find his father Walter (James Caan) in New York, who didn’t even know that Buddy existed.
The movie is hilarious and it always gives me Christmas feelings. I love how Will Ferrell plays the role of Buddy. It’s funny and believable. And I think I need to see the movie at least one more time before Christmas.
Watch the trailer down below!
If you haven’t watched it jet I can highly recommend it. And if you have seen it, why not watch it again! Curl up in your sofa with some hot chocolate and someone you love.
One of my favourite Christmas movies is: Love Actually. I like that you follow different people and see how there lives change over the time of the movie. This is a movie that has it all. Love, angst and so many funny moments.
The Christmas Song of the day is: Christmas Through Your Eyes by Gloria Estefan. This is a song that I remember from when I was a child. It’s a song that gives me Christmas feelings and I think the lyrics are where beautiful.
This song is always one my Christmas playlist. And I usually listen to it when I am decorating the tree or baking some Christmas goodies.
