As one of my dear friends pointed out to me today in an email, it’s only 48 more days until Christmas. Holy moly. That is like what? Not even 7 weeks. I should definitely start planning.
First of all, I’ll be doing the Christmas card exchange again. Last year, some of us blogging friends exchanged addresses and send cards to each other. I think it was a whole lot of fun and we should do it again. Besides the fact that it is just simply nice to receive cards in the mailÂ for Christmas, it’s a good way to get a little more “tangible”Â to each other by sending a real card with your personal handwriting :)
Everyone who would like to be part of it, send me message by email [if you know my address ;)] or the contact form on this website.
I am quite the Christmas card writer and will definitely have a long list of names already, but I would gladly add a few more!
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’ll be going back to Germany to see my family for Christmas! I am so excited! I have yet to book a flight *gasp* but I am pretty sure I’ll find something affordable.
I am particularly looking forward to the Christmas Market in KÃ¶ln. It’s always such a special atmosphere. If anyone is inÂ KÃ¶ln around Christmas, we can all meet up and get drunk on GlÃ¼hwein [= mulled wine] and Kakao Amaretto [Hot Chocolate with Amaretto] :) How does that sound? Would be worth a trip, don’t you think?!
IÂ should also start planning on my gift list.
I am usually pretty good in planning things out [especially with the time that I usually have to allow for postal deliveries – however, since I will probably “deliver” most of my presents in person this year – maybe I shouldÂ consider dressing up as Santa Claus? Oh, wouldn’t that be fun, me with a fake beard and a funny Santa Claus hat :)].
The shopping should definitely be done early, as in before-everyone-will-be-going-crazy-in-December and I already have a few ideas. That’s really good. Giving gifts is no fun if you don’t know what to get. So a little planning is always wise.
If this post caught you going “OMG, only 48 days!” than I suggest you do the same :)
