(Title: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Kurt Nilsen, episode 10, season 3, Skam)
One day before Christmas. The Christmas spirit has started to spread. A bit later this year than former years. I promise myself that next year I will be done Christmas shopping before December. December is reserved for baking Christmas cookies, decorating the house, joining Christmas concerts and generally enjouying life an inhaling the Christmas spirit. December is not for stressing around at different and busy shopping malls after Christmas presents when you don't really have time for it. I have done it before, and I know I can do it again. Next year, a year that so far is like a blank book waiting to be filled with good memories. A year full of possibilities, and I'm planning a lot. I know at the same time, I won't be able to do everything, but planning is half of the fun. And if I don't plan and try, I won't have chance to make it anyway. I'm an optimist. And I count on Skam not making another exhausting season. It's something about a show where the wait between released clips is the hardest and a part of the whole experience. It can only be experienced once, and it was this fall. But now I have only one gift left in my calendar, and that means Christmas is almost here. Today I got: Will you move in with me? and two handsewn bags made by a grandmother in Zambia. A card with information about who made them was included, and I love gifts with meaning. I have crawled into the coach with my knitting. Only for a little while, since I still have things to do. But for a little while it's allowed with a small break. My knitting is Flea that really is a Christmas present. Now turning into a New Years' present, but a nice way to start 2017 though. It's allowed to give presents early in 2017 as well.
