How did you enjoy the Holidays?
I decided, I will rest during the celebration time, physically and mentally. The before-holidays-rush really took its toll on me as it was quite an extreme since I had to finish up one big project at work, plus also had to prepare my home for celebration with my sister and dad.
I finished the work project and spend 21st and 22nd shopping for gifts and on 23rd I was preparing Christmas Eve (divorced parents) family dinner with my dad. Thankfully we stayed at Prague so Sasho and our two dogs could join as well.
The next day I went to pick up my sister and we went together to celebrate Christmas Eve with mom a and the Christmas Day with wider family. This time is always full of mixed emotions and feelings and it's not always great for me. We have some members of the family who really don't like celebrating with family and even thought it should be a holiday of forgiveness and love, it doesn't always feel like it and the toxic atmosphere spoils it for me. Christmas is not always a pink love holiday, but we should make the best effort to make the best out of it and we should try to get along.
Aside from that, the holidays were quite nice. It was great to get together and dine as we never do during the year, give a little bit of that hapiness and I even managed to make my mom's dream come true.
On 26th I got a flu, so three next days I wasn't able to do anything and I have a feeling I really haven't enjoy the free time, but that happens.
If you are interested in what I got, well this year I am really happy and the Ježíšek (Czech version of Santa is Baby Jesus) brought me such a nice gifts. There was a new iPhone, nice earrings, great books, very nice scented candles and plenty of bath cosmetics. I will show them later on.
But now I am interested, what did you do during the holidays? What did you get and mainy, how do you celebrate with your family? Let me know.
